Paligap Support Bristol Trails

The mountain biking trails of Bristol’s Ashton Court Estate and Leigh Woods, used by the GB Olympic BMX team as part of their pre-Olympic training, have had their immediate future and upkeep guaranteed thanks to a five-year sponsorship deal with Paligap, the Bristol-based importers of Avanti bikes. The original Ashton Court trail at was rebuilt in 2011 by Bristol City Council, whilst the new trail in neighbouring Leigh Woods was funded by the Forestry Commission and National Trust at a combined cost of £400,000; together they are considered amongst the best in the UK. The estimated 45,000 miles of trail ridden each month have taken their inevitable toll and Paligap’s ongoing support will ensure that the facilities continue to be enjoyed by all.


Managing Director of Paligap Limited David Lane said: ‘The trails are a magnet for people of all ages and abilities, from young children to cycling athletes, providing valuable exercise and enjoyment… We are now sponsoring the cycle trails at Ashton Court and Leigh Woods for five years, putting our money into trail maintenance for the enjoyment of all whilst building the Avanti brand awareness in the UK.’
