Today marks the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the Peak District National Park. Here at Peak District MTB we’d like to wish the Park and everyone who works there a very happy 70th anniversary to one of the UK’s most important and iconic places.
Our love of the Peak District is why we’re all here. From the Dales of the White Peak to the crags of the Dark, and everywhere in between, there are paths and trails, villages, ridges and moors which make this place so special to us and make it all the more important to look after.
We’re honoured to play an important role for mountain bikers in the Peak District National Park as your representatives on the Local Access Forum, but with that role comes a level of reponsibility. Luckily you lot understand that and feel the same way about the importance of this first National Park as the rest of us.
Let’s join the celebrations then for this iconic, important place and together look forward to an evolving and collaborative 70 years ahead.
Happy birthday Peak District.
