MEMBERSHIP & FEES
Why Become a Member?
Course building, trail clearing and way marking does not happen by magic and nor is it funded or undertaken by the Forestry Commission or any other public body. Chicksands Bike Park is responsible for this work, which takes time, effort and money. Our main source of income is from membership fees so it is important that people who regularly ride in the woodland do become members of Chicksands Bike Park.
In addition, Chicksands Bike Park pays an annual fee to the Forestry Commission as part of our commitment to general maintenance and upkeep of Rowney Warren.
We would also urge our members to help out on trail building and maintenance days when possible. Such days are advertised in advance on this web site.
How Much Does it Cost?
To ride just for the day :
A day ticket must be bought on arrival at the park from a Course Manager who will issue you with one ticket to ride for that day only. Day tickets are now required to ride on weekdays as well as weekends and bank holidays and this includes riding in the Bike Park.
Day Ticket cost :
Day tickets can be purchased at a price of £5 per rider regardless of age.
* Children aged 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
Day tickets can also be purchased through paypal so you don't have to worry about bringing money with you or losing it whilst you ride.
Please remember to state what date you would like it issued for in the notes section otherwise it will not be accepted!
Print the payment and bring it as a reciept please.
