Not Kent but big one down in Bexhill, bit of a trek though. Take a look at Romford skatepark, I keep meaning to go there, not a bmx track but enough bowl bits with smooth tops that you can ride into easily and pump out of without having to worry about "dropping" in (and literally!)

Bexhill bmx, nothing I can jump other than first table but you can pump the whole track which is crippling but good workout....  watching the bmx'ers go round it is mad how they jump, not had any grief either which you can get if you turn up at a place which isnt for your type of bike (didnt at the indoor skate park either up NE Kent, forget name now), you know if you turned up at a velodrome with a DH bike on knobblies and flats..

Romford, ignore the jumps etc, look in google earth as well to see all the pumpy bits, pay to ride but cheap, morning or afternoon, suggest go NOT at weekend which causes issues with Son though..

The ones at Hern just outside Hern Bay are pretty good. You can only really pump them on a full suss as there is only really one double that even Mark could clear,  but excellent to learn to pump properly. Don't know of any others round here.

Agreed. I really enjoyed the 4X at Chicksands on Sunday and now wish I hadn't sold the Inbred as that clearly would have been quicker. Am tempted by the Nuke proof 4X frame, or the Commie.

I was implying pump tracks, 4x is fine on a full susser although would be better with 4" max at the rear and quite stiffly sprung/pumped up hard

Yeah I know mate. The guys on HT were flying at Chickie so I think that HT's are still quicker on 4X too.
