This publication is printed on extremely tough, waterproof paper. Size A4 (210 x 297mm). Double sided.

On one side is the mountain bike map and on the reverse are the text descriptions of the suggested routes. All the trails in the area are shown and includes surface descriptions, technical gradings, indicators for how tough the hill climbs are, spot heights along the trails and useful features such as gates, pubs and cafes.

A combination of great scenery, easy and challenging off road routes, country lanes, good pubs and cafes make it an ideal area for mountain biking.

Experienced mountain bikers would get the most from the area, however fit beginners can easily hop off and walk down the sections that are too tricky.

The Mountain Bike Routes

Forest Fever

6 miles

A great mountain bike route around Macclesfield Forest that is no push over, some tough hill climbs and includes the notorious exhilarating descent down Charity Lane to Forest Chapel. If you find its over all to soon then why not take on a second lap!

Nose Bleed

10 miles

Macclesfield Forest plus Teggs Nose. Take in the above and add in a great section swooping down from the Forest, down a tricky narrow path and onto a great bridleway that leads between two reservoirs to come out at Langley. Then its time to test your legs with some tough climbing (all rideable) to take you eventually to the top of Charity Lane and more off road fun.

Screaming Cats

12 miles

First Macclesfield Forest then over and up to the Cat & Fiddle Public House (second highest in England) then slight climb along an easy bridleway before it descends for about a mile to the road. Then its soon time to test your skills on the loose stones, rock and odd tree root down the Cumberland Track. It's one of those where you know you're supposed to keep your body and hands relaxed, but it's easier said than done!

Wildboar Challenge

16 miles

This combines sections from all the above routes to make a great challenge.
