The Chase Trails Cycling Project involves local people in the design, build, maintenance and use of mountain bike trails in Cannock Chase, Staffordshire by providing equipment, training and machine hire to get the trails started. Over 100,000 people have ridden the network of cycling trails built in partnership between the Forestry Commission and the local community.

Volunteer trail building group Chase Trails was founded by local riders in 2003 with the aim of building and maintaining high quality, sustainable mountain bike trails on Cannock Chase. Working in partnership with the Forestry Commission, we have built 15 miles of mountain bike trails which we are continually working to maintain and improve. To date it is estimated that over 25,000 hours of volunteer time have been invested in the trails.

Chase Trails rely on volunteers to build and maintain the trails. We hold trail building sessions every week and are always looking for new volunteers to come and get involved.

By voting for Chase Trails you'll be showing your support for the trails and the work the volunteers do to build and maintain them. We'd encourage everyone to get behind us and support this fantastic project.
