Video: Mountain bike guides on their day off

All-mountain action in the Lake District

Stem-clamp's eye view of Jon Chalmers

When he’s not working as a mountain bike guide for Cumbria-based CycleActive, Jon Chalmers likes to film himself and his mates out on the trails of the Lake District.


In this clip he indulges in some all-mountain action on the routes around UIlswater and Helvellyn with fellow CycleActive instructor Rich Barnard.

There are plenty of unusual camera angles to spice things up, plus some nasty looking rocky descents and bemused ramblers to keep the pair on their toes.

The CycleActive crew will be on hand at BikeRadar Live this summer to run ‘pump and jump’ and ‘junior skills’ classes. For more details, visit the BikeRadar Live website.
