This centre, on the site of an old colliery, is the ideal place to start your cycling adventure.
Enjoy a gentle ride through the forest on the Family Cycle Trail or test your skills on one of our MTB or downhill trails.
On your bike!
Cannop Cycle Centre is the starting point for the Forest of Dean Family Cycle Trail which consists of eleven miles of waymarked, surfaced tracks.
The bottom half of the Corkscrew Downhill trail is currently closed for trail development. Please use an alternative until this can be re-opened.
For the safety of walkers and wildlife, please keep all off-road mountain biking to the Sallowvallets MTB area behind the Cycle Centre. In the wider forest, you can explore using hard surfaced tracks, but please do not ride off-road or on waymarked walking trails.
As well as hiring bikes, Pedalabikeaway also offers refreshments, toilets and a bike workshop. Contact Pedalabikeaway on 01594 860065 for further details.
1 South West off-road cycling project
Recent trail and car park improvements have been developed in partnership with the 1 South West off road cycling project. 1 South West aims to create an off-road cycling region and provide information allowing people to enjoy adventurous off-road cycing and progress their riding with confidence.
A number of cycle events are held on site each year. Parking may be limited on these days. Other events such as the Wyedean Car Rally (February) and Half Marathon (March) will affect the trails.
