Osprey12 Mountain Bike Race

Kielder Trail Reavers trying out sections of the newly built mountain bike routes at Kielder Forest.


12 Hour Mountain Bike Race using laps of the Kielder Blue graded Osprey trail.

Regarded by many as the best of the many trails at Kielder this route has something for everyone.  Singletrack in abundance that flows nicely up and down through the trees in large sections, some tough forest track climbs which allow for passing and just maybe a bit of “special stuff” that Chiller 24 riders will be familiar with. 

The whole event will take place in the inner working of the forest with an 11.8km lap and 320 metres of ascent/descent.  Vehicles (1 per team) will be placed on a forest track: vehicles need to be car/van width so as to not block the forest track. All event apparatus will be brought into the forest and once in place everyone will be there for the duration.

Booking and further information is through the High Fell Events Website.
