Vote for Britain’s best wild ride!
Which of these five classic natural MTB routes should bag the title?
We’re compiling a guide to Britain’s best wild rides, in association with TINCUP whiskey. Working with our routes specialist Max Darkins, of Rough Ride Guide, we’ve come up with a shortlist of 15 of the country’s best mountain bike loops, all of which deliver amazing riding, stunning views and unforgettable experiences.
Our only rule was that they all had to be on ‘natural’ terrain (for the most part, at least) – so bridleways, byways and other cycling rights of way, rather than manmade trail centre or bike park tracks (if that's the sort of riding you prefer, check out our online Trail Guide).
Now's your chance to have a say. We've whittled the contenders down to a top five, but we want you to let us know which one should win the coveted (from now on!) title of Britain’s best wild ride. Have your say in the poll below…
