Mountain biking holidays in Cheshire

Discover tracks, trails and challenges

Strike out on your own or get involved with local challenges when you stay at our new cabins in Delamere Forest. Near our location you’ll find a bike skills park and a great network of unmarked trails for the intrepid mountain biker. Manley Hill Bike Park has short tracks as well as dirt jumps, berms and table-tops. It’s a great spot to practice your skills before heading out into the forest. 

Also in Delamere Forest, Old Pale Hill has plenty of steep sections and a number of different routes to the summit. Stop long enough to admire the views before the hair-raising descent. Book a cabin for a midweek or week-long break and join in the TRACS Thursday Night Rides. These are free 2-hour guided cycle rides from the Delamere Cycle Shop at the Forestry England Visitor Centre, close to our cabins. They explore the tracks and trails of Delamere Forest and it’s a great way to discover hidden routes. 

Prefer to explore solo? The forest is criss-crossed with countless single and double track trails which start from your cabin door.

Family friendly cycling routes in and around Delamere Forest

Spend time together in nature

Planning a big family staycation? Cheshire has lots to offer and if you want to fit in as much fun as possible, it’s best to go by bike… Pack a picnic and follow the Hunger Hill Trail, a scenic 6.4km route. It follows wide forest roads with good surfaces and includes a couple of reasonably steep climbs to give everyone a little challenge. The climbs are rewarded by peaceful views across Blakemere Moss. 

The other main cycle route for families in Delamere Forest is the Whitemoor Trail. This is a longer ride of 11km where you can discover the hidden corners of the forest. Pass through meres and mosses to see wildlife including nuthatches, tree creepers, damselflies and butterflies... You can also load your bikes onto the car and head for the Chester Railway Path, a Sustrans route from Chester to Connah’s Quay. It’s 24km if you do the return journey but the flat terrain makes it ideal for a laidback family cycle ride.

See quaint towns and idyllic countryside

Discover Cheshire on a long distance cycling adventure that gives you an authentic feel for one of the most beautiful places in the UK. Biking the backroads is a pleasant 20km circular route along the quiet country lanes of Cheshire. Or for a longer cycle, create a circular route on the National Cycle Network. 

Pick up Sustrans Regional Cycle Network route 70 at Delamere Forest and take it east to the River Weaver. Here it joins Sustrans National Cycle Network route 5 ( head west on route 5 as it follows the river). Keep going through Frodsham and on towards Chester. 

Pick up route 70 again from Chester and head back east to Delamere Forest. The route is approximately 70km and gives you an opportunity to enjoy the countryside of west Cheshire.  This ride covers a portion of the Cheshire Cycleway 70. A challenging 283km circular route that pushes towards the southern, eastern and western borders of the county.
