“Whinlatter Forest Park is England’s only true mountain forest, rising to 790 metres above sea level, so the Altura Trail will really put the mountain back into mountain biking,” said Adrian Jones from the Forestry Commission.

Cyclewise also plans to run training courses from Whinlatter, including adventure racing skills training and junior skills sessions. Cube bikes are also ready for hire at the centre.
