The Lake District National Park Authority is to get a new deputy chairman, with a farmer replacing an admiral.
Those who like to take their mountain bikes
up the national park may note the replacement for the departing Admiral Sir John Kerr is local agriculturalist John Hayton.
Mr Hayton owns a farm at Thackthwaite, just outside Cockermouth and close to the Whinlatter Forest, one of the national park's mountain biking venues.
He said: "Sir John will be a very hard act to follow but I will do my best to live up to the support shown by colleagues who have nominated me for the post."
The authority will also elect a new chairman in June.
Owned by the Forestry Commission, Whinlatter Forest includes the 19 km red grade Altura Trail, which rises to 1,600 ft above sea level, plus the 7.5 km blue grade Quercus Trail.
It also has a bike shop, which may be handy for those needing bike maintenance
