With over 600 Kilometres of forest and 27 miles of Shoreline to choose from, Kielder Water and Forest Park is perfect for cycling.

From challenging long distance trails to more leisurely family ride - there's a multitude of forest trails and extensive networks of off road tracks to choose from.

The Castlewood skills loop gives you a taste of what the different grades of trails are like to ride while the Trails Park is the place to push your skill levels and learn new tricks.

Try the new family friendly blue graded trail or the stunning new Lonesome Pine and Bloodybush red routes which are fast flowing trails. The Deadwater red grade trail is technical and demanding - for the biggest challenge try the black grade trail.

For detailed cycling routes and maps you can visit one of the visitor centres throughout the park. Bike hire is also available on site. Tel: 01434 250532 or 01434 250457.
