Good news for the South West, Gawton’s Gravity Hub has a new uplift operator, Zero Gravity Uplifts.
Zero Gravity Uplifts have recently replaced Flyup Downhill as the official uplift service at Gawton.
Zero Gravity Uplift’s new service will run on Saturdays only and use two 4×4’s and custom built trailers, operating on Gawton’s fire roads.
The plan, according to the new team, is to start off by running one day a week and grow if it’s met with interest from riders.
The new service is run by locals Chaz and Kirk Lamley, who are familiar faces in the area and already deeply invested in the local mountain bike scene.
Uplifts cost £28 per rider for a full day and can be booked at www.zerogravityuplift.co.uk. Riders need to pay online in advance and also hold a Club membership (day memberships are available for £5 a day from the uplift drivers or online here).
Chaz told us that “The money will be going straight back into the club to maintain the tracks and improve riding in the area”.
If you haven’t ridden Gawton recently, you’re missing out. It’s just outside Tavistock in Devon and has 5 fun, technical, steep downhill tracks and a pump track. There’s a good mix of riding and plenty to push your skills – including some meaty jumps and road gaps. You can read our story from when Monet visited Gawton with Jasper Flashman here.
