Poll: How Do You Get To Non-Local Trails?

by 6

This week’s Singletrack Poll Question that we want to ask you: How do you get to non-local trails?

Now, we’re not necessarily talking about international riding trips, but rather rides that are beyond easy riding distance from your house. Perhaps the next county over, or at the other end of the country. For these rides, do you typically make use of your car? And if so, do you use roof racks or a rear-mounted rack? Or do you squeeze your bike and all your gear in the boot? Or maybe you don’t have a car, and you’re able to bum a lift in someone else’s car?

Canyon have the most coveted race truck
Do you have a purpose-built adventure wagon to get to far-reaching trails?


Or do you use public transport instead? Perhaps a train or a bus?

We’d love to know how you get to your non-local trails, so pick the option that best suits you below. Can’t see the poll for some browser-related technical reason? Then click here to submit your answer!

    You’ve been done, your private jet has propellers

    No E-bike option? Sort it out folks!

    You missed the expensive and crappily-timetabled ferries which lie between riders on the Isle of Wight and non-local trails everywhere else in the world.

    I thought the Isle of Wight had some good riding?

    For reference I don’t think you can get 3 bike bags on that plane, wasn’t a good evening

    Just over a year ago we swapped (and I mean that quite literally!) my fiancées battered old Honda Civic for a slightly more battered old transit – no regrets so far
