Mountain Biking Rivington Pike

*****   Add a review
#7 of 99 mountain bike trails in England
#2,341 in the world

Best place to start is at the top of the Pike by the castle. Once up here (after the climb) there is a short technical section that runs from the top, few drop offs and grassy sections.
Once you get the gate a left hand turn will take you to a couple of decent singletrack sections, and a right turn will take you back into the chinese gardens for a nice cross country section

    Been a few times and the climb is long but the views from the top are worth the effort. There is a few ways down and all a good fun even the rocky bit just past pigeon tower. All in all a good ride.
