The Kielder Trail Reavers are a volunteer group who design, build and maintain mountain bike trails in Kielder Water & Forest Park, deep in the Northumberland wilderness, close to the border with Scotland. We meet up at least once a month for trail builds, and we encourage anyone to come along and join in. No special skills are required - just an enthusiasm for progressing Kielder as a top mountain biking venue. Benefits for attending trail build days include parking passes, free camping at Kielder Campsite on trail build weekends, and the satisfaction of what can be achieved.
