Thackley Buck Woods Urban Skills Spot
An Urban Skills area on the outskirts of Bradford. Buck Woods consists of a collection of jumps and drops for the beginner through to the advanced plus a hand crafted pump track.
Buck Woods is a large oval with jumps for all levels from beginner to expert. Think tabletops / doubles rather than those large ‘backflip’ style jumps. A place for the cool young guns and daft old dads and mums to hone there undoubtedly natural talents!
A popular place to start a ride around the local woods of Calverley, Esholt & Buck Woods and a great place to polish those ‘massive air skillz’!
Found just off the A657 Leeds Road in the heart of Thackley, near Thackley Football Club. Turn down Thackley Road then bear right down Ainsbury Ave. Look out for a wide gate on your left where the wooded area starts.
Parking is free as is the riding!
Located in/near the grounds of Crossflatts Primary school this pump/bmx track was built alongside a DfT funded National Cycle Network link to the school. Its a small track ideal for youngsters or just those wanting a quick session.
You can access the track via the canal heading towards Bingley from Morton Lane, or coming the other way from Micklethwaite Lane.
