Improving the cycle trails at Cannock Chase Forest
Working to help protect the ecologically sensitive areas of Cannock Chase
We’re really excited to be nearing the end of the works on a new moderate level, blue grade mountain bike trail that will help protect the ecologically sensitive areas of Cannock Chase that make it a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Area of Conservation.
We’re also working with a range of partners on supporting projects to help encourage people – both young and not-so-young - into cycling, whilst making sure they understand how to ride on the Chase in a way that is not damaging to the more ecologically sensitive areas.
This new trail will also form the backbone of the course for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games mountain biking events next year, putting Cannock Chase Forest firmly on the mountain biking map globally. For information about the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games click here.
