Mountain bike route 'set for go-ahead'
Bookmark and Share
A mountain bike route in Lancashire is set to be given the green light, it has been reported.

Funding from different sources totalling £230,000 has been given towards a project that will create a formal footpath link between two mountain bike courses in Rossendale, the Lancashire Telegraph reports.

This will see the link across what is already common land providing a connection between the Lee Quarry facility and Cragg Quarry, where proposed new cycling trails recently received funding.

Environment official Tony Lund was quoted by the paper saying: "The provision of a high-quality multi-user route across the moor will preserve the moor from erosion with people making their own way across the moor."

Such a path would mean those on mountain bikes could ride between the two cycle centres.

Last month, Dartmoor National Park offered mountain bikers the chance to get involved in a project to develop new services and facilities to encourage more young people and those from ethnic minority groups to visit the area.
