As the number of mountain bikers on the trails increases, so do the number of injuries.
Mountain rescue teams across the Lake District are preparing for a busy Easter weekend after attending a record number of call outs last year.
In the past 12 months, the teams attended more than 500 incidents - the highest ever.
Craig Scott is the Director of Cyclewise at Whinlatter. He shares a couple of tips to prepare yourself for a day on the trails:
- Know where you're going - and know where is the safe and legal places to go.
- Riding within your own skill set -and if you don't have the skills, you can learn more from a coach or a course.
