If you are interested in lending us a hand, don't be stranger make yourself known, there is always plenty that needs doing.
At the park we have regular dig days, in fact most saturdays.They are either for general maintenance of already established tracks or the creation of a new line,we have plenty of ideas for new features for this coming year, so you’d be more than welcome to pick up a spade or pick and help us out, Just before a race is when we need the most hands on deck with making sure the track we have choosen to use for the race is running well. These dig days will be put up on our facebook page and on this website, so please keep an eye out for them if you are interested.
During our races at the park and were always on the lookout for for people to help us with marshalling. We’ll feed you and provide you with everything you need throughout the day whilst on the hill. It’s always a good day for all those involved, you’ll get to see some great riding and meet some amazing people and have a laugh whilst your at it.
If you're interested in getting involved with the park, you can come to hill and say hello to any of us or you can contact us on here or on facebook on either the Okeford hill bike park page or the Hammoon cycles page.
We offer one of the only uplifts in the whole of the south of England, providing a quick friendly turn around using our Land Rover defenders and custom built trailers.
The uplift itself only takes 5minuets from bottom to top, which means throughout the day you’ll easily be able to get close to completing 20 runs. They uplift stops for lunch normally around 12:30pm. If you arrived in the morning and bought a half day uplift pass, this is when your half day finishes. Or if you've just arrived this is when you half day starts.
At Okeford hill we are surrounded by beautiful countryside waiting to be explored with plenty of established walking trails for miles around, through green fields and lovely woodland walks, you can also access the Wessex Ridgeway walk which passes through the forest at Okeford hill the wessex ridgeway itself starts in Marlborough in Wiltshire and finishes on the jurassic coast in Lyme regis.

All our races are govened by British Cycling and will always have a commisar pressent representing them. This means we use their rules and regulations. All courses are rolable with alternate lines to avoid unrolable drops and jumps. There are always professional medics on site for races and since opening we have helped first aid train 28 people involved with the park.
