For mountains of biking fun, head up to Whinlatter Forest Park, near Keswick, home to the Altura Red and Quercus Blue mountain bike trails. While there, pop in to our Cyclewise Whinlatter shop/hire centre and MTB course venue.
Conveniently located at the head of the Altura Red North and the Quercus Blue mountain bike trails, Cyclewise Whinlatter is THE place for ‘all things biking’ while at the forest.
Our hire centre has a fleet of quality front-suspension mountain bikes to hire (£18 for 3 hours, £25 for all day), ideal for use on the trails or just for riding around and exploring Whinlatter’s wonderful forest and scenery. Children’s bikes are also available, from £13 for 3 hours. If you want a bit more bounce, you could hire a ‘Premium’ full-suspension bike (£30 for 3 hours, £40 for all day).
In store, we have road and mountain bikes for sale, as well as clothing, helmets, body armour, Buffs, tyres, component upgrades and a wide variety of other trail kit that our staff themselves use as mountain bike coaches.
We also have a Shimano Approved Workshop & Cytech Approved Centre. Our staff are trained bike mechanics to a minimum Cytech Level 2 as such, we can provide a full service facility or carry out trail-induced repair jobs to get you back riding.
From our base at Whinlatter, we also offer group guiding, British Cycling Leadership courses and MTB skills coaching, including courses on cycle maintenance, plus 3-hour Family Skills sessions during the school holidays – great for ALL ages and abilities!
The entire Cyclewise gang are passionate about all kinds of biking, so why not pop in to get some advice, do a bit of shopping, or just to relax after your ride. All are welcome (even if you’re covered in mud!)
