TOURISM bosses climbed into the saddle to highlight the Olympic potential of the Peak District.

Visit England and Park bosses hope London 2012 fever will spur on youngsters to take advantage of the park’s 58 miles of off-road cycling routes or try other sports in the Peaks.

Peak District National Park Authority chief executive Jim Dixon said: “National parks are free open spaces on our doorsteps where you can try out a sport or recreational activity and make it part of your everyday life.”

Visit England chief executive James Berresford said: “With its dramatic moorland and breathtaking landscapes, the Peak District is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts.”
