To celebrate National Bike Week, Forestry England has revealed its top t10 family woodland bike rides .

Kielder Forest is perfect for families, with the Borderline Cycle Trail which runs along a former railway line. The route is relatively flat and easy to ride, great for little ones just learning their cycling skills.

Cycling is an excellent way to experience the outdoors and a fantastic activity that can be enjoyed by the whole family.

Bridgette Hall, Forestry England’s head of recreation, said: “We want everyone to enjoy the nation’s forests and woods and cycling offers a healthy and exhilarating way to get out and explore.
