Mountain biking a feature of community champions meeting

A meeting of 'Community Champions' whose task is to promote the great outdoors to people from ethnic minority groups have been taking to their mountain bikes in a meeting in the Lake District.

Over 50 of the champions gathered at Windermere to help celebrate their achievements in promoting the Mosaic initiative, which is run by the Campaign for National Parks (CNP).

The CNP chief executive Kathy Moore noted that only one per cent of visitors to national parks come from ethnic minorities, despite these comprising ten per cent of the UK population.

She stated: "It is very important that a cross section of the British population develops a passion for national parks and cares about their future protection."

While the Mosaic group was meeting in the Lakes, another person with strong associations to the national park has been chosen to front a campaign by the Ramblers to get more people to don their walking boots and enjoy the great outdoors.

Julia Bradbury - well known for presenting programmes on Alfred Wainwright's guides to the fells - is set to be confirmed as the president of the organisation next month, the body has stated.
