Eastridge Mountain Bike Trail Centre is a free mountain biking venue in Shropshire, UK. The venue is developed and maintained by volunteers, and features a mixture of blue, red and black graded trails. There are also a number of steep, technical off-piste trails. Since 1991 Eastridge Woods have been used to host Downhill and XC mountain biking events since the 90’s hosted the British National Mountain biking Championships in 1993,1994,1995,1996 and 1999.
The area was mined for lead and other minerals until 1955. At one point it was believed to be the most productive lead mine in Europe, it even had its own railway network: Snailbeach District Railways. Relics from the mine workings can still be found today at the nearby village of Snailbeach.
The first races at the venue were organised by local cycling club, the Mid Shropshire Wheelers in collaboration with the British cycling federation. In 1998 the venue hosted a round of the National Mountain Bike Points Series and featured in the satellite TV program Mountain Bike Britain.
