Gisburn Forest

The forest is situated north of Clitheroe in an upland area on the eastern edge of the Forest of Bowland, not far from the Yorkshire Dales. The forest is managed by the Forestry Commission and is used by many different groups but the good news is that mountain bikers are about to get a significant injection of new singletrack trails in 2009.

The Isle Of Man

Isle Of Man: ‘Little Britain’. Hard slogs, epic views, summit bagging, coastal teetering, remoteness, technical playtimes, backyard exploring, fast and rocky, slow and rooty. You want it? It’s all here.

The Western Lake District

whilst the Lake District is a busy and popular National Park, some of these routes really do take you into the back end of nowhere. Wasdale Head (the start of the medium and big loop routes) is miles away from anywhere sizeable and does not have the facilities of the bigger towns like Keswick or Ambleside.
