- Is there a trail/ride…
… in the UK that ends at the coast (or within rolling distance)? I’m not necessarily talking about being spat off a descent and on to the shore but something that gives a nice final couple of downhill-ish miles to a coast side town village?Posted 6 years ago
Golspie? Start up a damn big hill, ride almost uninterrupted downhill to the trailhead, then ride about 200 metres down the hill to the beachPosted 6 years ago
South Downs to Eastbourne or drop off at any coastal town between Winchester and Eastbourne? Depends if you like wrinklies and a blue rinse?Posted 6 years ago
Isle of wight?Posted 6 years ago
The Torridon loop has a terrific descent down into Annat which is right on the edge of Loch Torridon.Posted 6 years ago

It’s not exactly what I had in mind!
Thanks for the suggestions, amazingly they’re in the three corners of the country about as far from me as is possible.
Any ideas within half a day’s travel (train ideally) of Manchester/North West?Posted 6 years ago
anywhere round porlock/minehead/lynmouth.Posted 6 years ago
Why not look for a lakeside finish in the lakes/peaks – much closer to home!!Posted 6 years ago
Drum?Posted 6 years ago
Pont scethin final descent?Posted 6 years ago
Head out on the North Wales coast mainline Bangor/Holyhead bound but get off at Llanfairfechan Station – for an ascent of Drum. A quick scoot along the cycle track to Abergwyngregan and then cycle uphill for 2 hours. Get to the top of Drum, look at the view, sit in the cairn and then turn around. However at the cross roads halfway down by the pylons carry straight ahead rather than retrace your steps by going left, it’s signposted on a wooden 4 way marker post. It’s a better descent and takes you straight down to Llanfairfechan. Dependant on weather and fitness – 2hrs up 30mins down.Posted 6 years ago
theres a few on the north devon coast / edge of exmoor – lynmouth valley of the rocks and around porlockPosted 6 years ago
based purely on driving past to my inlaws, maybe Conwy in Wales? No idea but looks like a possibilityPosted 6 years ago
Looks like North Wales is the best bet, I had a feeling that might be the case, scheming on a plan for a two dayer with bivvy/camp so makes sense really. Thanks for the suggestions everyone. 😀Posted 6 years ago
