I've got to nip down to Bristol to pick the young fella from uni sometime in the next week.. this looks like I could nip in off the M4 on the way.. just for a little rest from driving of course!

How does the bowl work out with the big bit in the middle, Good, bad, no difference?

That volcano is massive! Brian, You can use it to get an extra pump like a hip or go right over the top like the chap above. Going to be floodlit at some point also.

That is a nice looking bowl. Looks like Avon is another area benefiting from a veritable plethora of skateparks.

Brian, we might have to organise a road trip sometime ;-)

nice - that's only a 20 min walk from my office for half the week.

Might be a few dawn raids on the cards in the weeks ahead I reckon

Yeah, West Yorks looks like poor location in comparison to these other hot spots :-(

Too damp this morning... shitbags. Hagwag hope you get a session in this weekend. Looks unlikely for me today, probably going to be under the M32 or another covered spot tomorrow. Getting itchy feet now!

so far the 4 or 5 times I've popped by on the way home from work it's been rammed with scootards, many of whom are sitting on the coping of the bowl

totally can't be arsed to tell them to move - might give it a go one morning on the way to work instead
