The Peak District is the favourite National Park in the U.K.. The mountain buike trails vary, from the rugged and wild Dark Peak, to the limestone valleys of the White Peak, but all provide a superb day mountain biking in the Peak District National Park
With two great forest centres too, at Grizedale and Whinlatter, the Lake District should be on every mountain bikers list. The area is also filled with accommodation options and great places to eat, including the legendary Wilf’s Cafe at Staveley – so get along to the Lakes and ride in some of the most beautiful and technically testing areas of the UK.
