Here at Sheffield Urban CX we are proud to be working with Sheffield’s latest innovator, Timberfly Ramps. Timberfly will be supplying some of the features on the Kelham Course on May 6th. Nick Howarth, Timberfly’s wood wizard is designer, maker and tester for the firms ramps, and he is currently in full production with some rather tasty rollers that will be ready and waiting along with some more Timberfly features on the course.

Nick has also been working on a portable ramp system that stows in a rucksack. This amazing piece of kit is currently in the development stages of production and we are looking forward to testing it soon. ‘There are some amazing mountain bike trails around The Outdoor City’ Tibmberfly owner tells us ‘The idea of a portable ramp came about as an idea to spice of a regular riding route and also as a way to just have fun and develop skills in the local park or trail. I am currently developing the prototype to make it lighter, we’ve had a great response from testers of all ages. We had a recent test session with the Yorkshire Youth Riders MTB club and it was amazing to see how the portable ramp added another dimension to a morning sessioning Eckington Woods. It’s given me a few more ideas to refine the design and we are looking to launch and take orders soon’.
