Northern Grip, a premier mountain biking festival, which attracts hundreds of people from across the country to the borough, is returning to Rossendale this weekend (Saturday, July 13.)
Councillor Alyson Barnes, Leader of the Council, said:
I was delighted to see last year’s Northern Grip go so well so really pleased it will once again be hosted here.
The organisers put on a superb festival which had something for everyone – not just serious mountain bikers. Such events show Rossendale has a unique sports offer – as the organisers of Northern Grip have said – there is nowhere else in the world like Lee Quarry.
We want to attract more events like this one which bring people across the country here and show we are the Adrenaline Valley.
I hope everyone enjoys the weekend and the borough has to offer.
