Trees Down!

Couple of trail updates after yesterdays wind..........

There is a tree down across the top of the Zander Zone on the North Face trail in Grizedale.
Also in Grizedale - the sections known as 3 witches, there is a tree across the trail on the second witch after the first right hander.

Take it easy until you know the trails are clear!

Friends of the Lake District Leaders Landscape Training

We recently attended a Leaders Landscape training day organised by Friends of the Lake District, and presented by representatives from The National Trust and Lake District National Park. The day consisted of talks on the ecosystems that exist throughout the different Lake District landscapes and why the area looks like it does today. This was really quite interesting and it was amazing to realise what we actually take for granted every time we step outside.
This was followed up with talks on the development and sustainability of mountain biking in the area and I gave a bit of information to the group on the formation of the Lake District Mountain Bike Association and our objectives.
