mountain biking

Please can you suggest an area with rural location and stunning scenery where we can go cycling and mountain biking. We would like to find a more rugged part of the Lake District and avoid quaint villages, prefering open countryside. thanks

Grizdale forest offers off road cycling on forest trails and tracks. There are several routes with something to suit all levels

Just head for the visitors centre and take it from there. You can even hire bikes if thats easier for you

Whinlatter has quite an extensive length of routes for mountain bikes and the views across Bassenthwaite Lake are stunning. You can also hire bikes there and there is a Go Ape there as well as a visitor centre and very nice cafe.

I agree with Grizedale Forest, it's one of the best for mountain Biking, just spent last week up there it was superb!
