Phil Kay will be in the saddle as he rides around the Grizedale Forest with a loudspeaker on May 26th, through which he will provide entertainment as part of his unusual high-energy routine, the Westmorland Gazette reports.
Katie Jarvis from the Forestry Commission said: "Grizedale has fantastic biking facilities, including the North Face trail and 'The Black' downhill trail, as well as family cycling routes and Grizedale Mountain bike
Mr Kay is a big cycling fan with eight road bikes
and mountain bikes
and he will be following his ride round the forest with a stand-up gig at a cycle store in Staveley.
The Grizedale Forest's black downhill run was only opened earlier this month, with the Grizedale Mountain Bike
Club being helped by the Forestry Commission, which supplied heavy equipment for the task.
