On yer Bike!
Whether you ride the trails, roads or ramps this is an activity that ranges from being fun and leisurely, to muddy and extreme! 99% of people can already ride a bike, so it's just a case of trying a different format! There are many hire centres to take advantage of that operate within and around national parks dotted around the UK. During the summer it's a great group activity and the forest trails provide the perfect setting for fitness, fun & adrenaline! So in the words of Freddy Mercury: "Get on your bikes and ride!"
This is one of my favourite activity videos from YouTube. It shows the Witney Mountain Bike Club in Afan, Wales. They have filmed the last section of the 'Wall' trail, which sees them mostly free-wheeling a looooong stretch of downhill!
