Practice Venues - below are places where practice is allowed within the conditions set by the operator
All land belongs to
someone, you must have their permission to ride on it. Unauthorised
riding on event venues is the biggest threat to our sport. Don't do it
Revised rules still with need to pre-book before going but travel restriction removed see new rules:
New rules for practicing at Hawks Nest From Saturday 1st August
Thank you for been understanding during this last 2 months and sticking to all the new rules.
We have decided to take away the distance limit and let you all come and practice. However if your area gets put in local lockdown or we get put in local lockdown we ask you to keep away. This is to protect those coming and ourselves and our neighbours. We are relying on you to use your common sense here as you are all adults.
We are still asking you book in with us via Facebook messenger, email firstname.lastname@example.org and last of all phone the farm 01298 78976. If you come without booking you will be asked to leave as we have used all the space at the top for the 18 spaces. I only need to know how many vehicles you are booking for not how many are in your group. If you are wanting to ride with friends one person book with how many vehicles there will be in your group and we will try are best to have you all on the same day. That in mind when booking please give me more than one day within the week that you would like so that when I get to your message I donít have to message you back for a different day as that one in full. This will put you to the back of the list as I will be working through the messages on a first come first serve.
A reminder of the old and new rules
When riding at Hawks Nest please stay on our land. Do Not go through either gate on your bikes (even if you have insurance) this is to help keep our neighbours happy and you to be able to keep riding here.
Please keep within the blue rope and out of the trees at the top. If any stones go on to the road please can you pick them up before you leave. Again to keep the neighbours happy 😊
When going down to the please keep off the bridle way other than to cross over into the trees.
With the bridleway in mind the locally horse trekking centre come through the ground. If you see them coming please turn your engines off and wait for them to be far enough away before starting them up again.
When you arrive park your vehicles in the next available space the pull in before our drive is the first space then 2-18 are after that. The metal poles have seemed to gone missing over the weeks so please park sensible. Again you are all adults 😊 Then come down to the farm and place the correct money (£5 pre bike) in the black box by the door. We will collect it at points in the day.
It is your responsibility to keep to the 2m social distancing rules you are all adults and unless you have been lied to by your other half should know how long 2ms is 😉
Lastly please remember that even though my 3 month old is now 6 months I will still be only able to reply to you when he is asleep, playing nicely or his dad is home from work. Donít keep sending me messages as again this will send you to the back of the queue. Please still give plenty of time between when you message and when you want to come. Booking for the next day will not always be possible.
