Cycling and mountain biking trails at Cannop Cycle Centre

With a Family Cycle Trail, blue and red graded cross-country trails and a number of more advanced downhill trails, Cannop Cycle Centre has something for everyone. Brush up on your off-roading techinique with our specially designed skills areas and pump track. Grab your helmet and head into the forest today!

Here are our top tips for a great day out on the trails:

  • Make sure your bike is in full working order.
  • Bring a backpack with you for all your essentials: First aid kit, water, snacks, spare inner tube, pump, repair kit, map, fully charged mobile phone.
  • Always ride within your limits and WEAR YOUR HELMET.
  • First Aid will not always be available on site. Know your location at all times and have a mobile phone to raise help. If you do have an accident make your way back to your vehicle if you are able to. Only call 999 if it is essential.
  • Please respect others using the forest - be aware of walkers and horse riders you may come across during your ride.

Whilst out on the trails, if you come across any maintenance issues please report them to: fodtrails@forestryengland.uk
