GNAR Bike Park is a new progressive bike park near Penrith in Cumbria which opened in June 2016. GNAR stands for Go North and Ride. Always building new lines in May 2017 they opened a new track 'Double Down'.
- There are plans for an uplift facility that could in time service 20+ trails of multiple varieties (jump trails, rooty single track and wooden features etc). The area covers 46 acres of woodland (with 80 metres vertical drop) so there is a lot of opportunities to develop going forward post launch.
GNAR opened with 5 tracks:
- This trail has no features but gets riders used to unsurfaced tracks, tight corners and negotiating roots etc.
- This track has rollable loops (which can be hit as a double - optionally).
- Here it starts to introduce small gaps and kickers
- This track is faster, steeper and narrower.
- This steps it up with 12-foot log to log gaps.
- Downhill track that opened in Mid- May 2017.
- Like most Bike Parks it costs to ride. Check out their site for details. GNAR is the brainchild of owner Ben Eggleston
