Forest of Dean Cycle Centre

Grid Ref SO 607 126




We were behind the Cycle Centre to remove many tree guards by the side of the tracks and it was a lovely spring day.

The varied terrain and scenery in the Forest of Dean make it an ideal place to cycle. The Forest of Dean Cycle Centre is the hub of cycling in the Forest of Dean and provides a range of progressive single track trails to demanding downhill runs, and it also provides a link to the family cycle trail which is the perfect way to explore the wider forest.

Piles of the old tree guards were brought down to be removed from the site.

There were many cyclists on the tracks.
Forestry England continue to support cycling and work together with the mountain bike community via groups such as the Dean Trail Volunteers (DTV) to improve and maintain the trail network.

The trees have now grown enough to no longer require the guards.
