This is the 1st of five mountain biking days in the Lake District. 

Whinlatter is one of my favourite trail centres. Both red trails are fast and flowing with amazing downhill sections. The Blue trail is again an amazing ride which should not to be under estimated. The plan is to do the Blue trail, followed by the South Red and ending with the harder North Red. All trails start and end at the Trail Centre cafe so we can stop for refreshments between rides.

These MTB events are open to everyone. You don't have to be part of the Langdale Camp event. However, for those that are, we aim to leave at 09:00 and then drive to the start of the ride

The Langdale Valley is an amazing location with many options of walks, climbs, rides and more from the campsite or within a short drive we can explorer further afield.

There is camping for the Five day event of the Lakes Activity Week, arriving Tuesday and departing on Sunday. 

I'll be staying at the Great Langdale NT Campsite from the Tuesday afternoon which is a short walk to several pubs for the evenings but there are many other places to stay including the Old Dungeon Gill Hotel, New Dungeon Gill Hotel, Langdale Hotel, Elterwater Hostel, Baysbrown Campsite, Great Langdale Bunkhouse & more.
