Put simply, where do you think is the best place to ride in the UK?

Tweed Valley

So good, it’s the host venue for the UK round of the EWS, many pros have moved there, and the Tweed Valley has become an internationally recognised destination. There are trails for every level of rider, and trails on almost every hillside. Each spot within the valley offers a slightly different flavour of riding – some are almost impossibly steep sinews of trail through rooty forests, while others take in more air time, or take you on long pedals across rolling hills. It’s a playground with something for every season, every tyre width, and every type of rider. What do you mean, you’ve not been?

If you’ve had enough of the Tweed Valley, this is becoming the place to go. It’s the place where the pros move to after they’ve moved to the Tweed Valley. A little quieter (for now) but with a massive network of trails, there is enough riding here to keep the visitor coming back, again and again. Plenty of super technical trails for those that want to push their limits, but less mapped out than much of the Tweed Valley. Heading to Dunkeld and Birnham feels like finding trail treasure over and over. 

Revolution Bike Park

Never dry, never dull! ‘Revs’ (as it is known by most regular visitors) is an uplift spot in a great area of North Wales that feels very ‘Euro alpine’. There are no easy-easy tracks at Revs, and it’s a popular practice place with UK’s World Cup DH racers, but don’t let all that put you off going. If you can get down a Black run at the milder UK trail centres, there’s plenty of stuff for you at Revs. You can get a whole load of proper alps-style descending done in one visit. Just take a change of clothes for half-time.

I came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. I like all bikes, but especially unusual ones. More than bikes, I like what bikes do. I think that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments. I try to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.

    For trail centres, Comrie Croft must be up there with the best of them.

    Relatively small but with some great trails, bike shop, camping and the food is pretty nice too. 👍

    Oh, I can only choose from the above. I thought they were just examples.

    Never ridden bike park Wales so can’t really pick that one.

    Recently spent the weekend up Dunkeld and the sheer breadth of quality trails within riding distance of the town is incredible.

    But the tweed valley would still get my vote as although the trails are more spread out, there are just so many, even after Arwen visited. Tweed love and the EWS are very well done and seem to be embraced by the locals. Forsyth’s butchers and bakers on Peebles high Street are the icing on the cake (pun intended). Lasagne pies are very tasty 🤤

    Well, that and it not being in the list. That option should probably read Revolution Bike Park in Wales. Still, probably get them a ton of votes from people who thought it was BPW

    What are you talking about, Revs has been dry alllll summer. 🙂 #REVS4EVS

    Everyone should vote for Revs now. If you haven’t seen their announcement on IG, check it out. The community is losing a great riding spot for the forceable. Such sad news.
