Thank you DG. I was a Games Maker volunteer here in 2012 - our group (athlete transport) was allocated to both here and the Lee Valley White Water centre for the canoe slalom, presumably given the low number of competition days at each.

I had one orientation visit and one competition day there, supervising the arrival of athlete buses, and later helping out with volunteer shuttles to the rail station (Leigh).

While I was there Princess Anne visited and passed us in her car.

It was a glorious day and the view was great.
Found this place shortly after it reopened to the public.
Fabulous views and pleasant cafe and at that time had the place virtually to ourselves
We were lucky enough to get tickets for the womens 2012 race and a great day out it was too - a return visit looks like it's in order
A belated welcome to Essex (I know - you probably know it better than I do...)

Enjoyed watching the women's race in 2012, and have since enjoyed riding the course. Somewhere between a 'blue' and 'red' rider, though I think some of the 'black' sections more doable than others.

It has always seemed surprisingly quiet when I've been - possibly not as well publicised as it might be.
My parents live 10 minutes walk from the park, though I am several thousand miles away.

On a visit last summer I took the family there and had a great day out. Besides the Olympic mountain cycling course, there's also a fairly long (three or four miles) off-road trail to ride, which my eight-year-old and ten-year-old thoroughly enjoyed (kids mountain bikes also being available for hire).

It is a fantastic facility with plenty to enjoy whether a cyclist or not, whether young or old.
Thanks for letting us know about this. Went on a great walk last Wednesday on a boiling hot day no less, started at Benfleet Station and ended up at a pub in Leigh on Sea. Brilliant walk.
