London Olympics: Hadleigh FarmEvent: Mountain Bike

The scenic Hadleigh Farm in Essex will host the Olympic Mountain Bike competition for London 2012. Owned by the Salvation Army, Hadleigh Farm covers a 550-acre site which boasts wonderful grassland and woodland, some fantastic gradients conducive for a technically challenging course, and a stunning backdrop in the shape of the 700-year-old ruins of Hadleigh Castle and the Thames Estuary. The new Mountain Bike course winds through woods, parklands, meadows and a marsh, and was completed in March 2011. A temporary stadium will be erected for spectators, around 20,000 of whom should also be able to wander over the hilly terrain to view the action close up to the riders. Hadleigh Farm is around 45 minutes from London Fenchurch Street station.
