Come ride the trails and bridleways of Grizedale Forest in the beautiful Lake District National Park. Located between Coniston Water and Esthwaite Water, Grizedale Forest is a beautiful setting to explore by mountain bike. Throughout the forest there are a wide variety of sculptures, mostly made from natural materials which complement the wooded setting. 

The loop around the forest will cover a mixture of man-made trails and single-track plus exhilarating downhills on rough bridleways. The exact loop can be modified on the day based on the abilities of the group. Bike hire is available at Grizedale visitor centre but please note this ride will not be suitable for a MTB novice. The route is graded red and will be about 36km (22 miles).

This event is coinciding with a nearby hostel event, so some of us will be staying there:
