📍 Home to northern Europe's largest man-made lake and England's largest forest, Kielder is rugged mountain bike heaven. Come and experience some of the best single tracks in the UK with breathtaking views. (1h from Carlisle, 1h 10 min from Newcastle, 2h from Edinburgh)

🗺 We will be riding bridleways that are ideal for anyone wanting to try out mountain biking, or get back in the saddle. The uphills consist of easier singletracks, and the downhills will be very flowy. This means you can easily carry your speed without having to worry about too steep or rocky bits, that could be tricky to deal with.

🚴‍♂️ Bike hire is available next to the starting point of the trail centre

⛺️ By Kielder Castle is a campsite, as well as a pub and cafe. If you stay at the campsite, parking would be free. If you're looking for a B&B then why not stay at The Pheasant Inn. The closest supermarket is the Co-op in Bellingham, which is best visited on your way to Kielder.

🚌 While there is no bus service to Kielder, many members would be happy to carshare. Please check out who's going and consider dropping them a message.
