Before we hit the trails together, we refresh beginners on the five must-have trail riding skills for a great day out.

Each ride is a lesson in itself, teaching you the nuances of off-road biking and the art of reading the trail ahead. As you explore the UK’s breathtaking Green Lanes, you’ll find yourself completely in the moment and evolving as a rider. It’s what makes trail riding with Phoenix an exciting journey of self-discovery and exhilaration.

The best seasons for UK trail riding

Trail riding’s allure knows no season, but some times of year are better than others, depending on your skills and experience.

Exploring the trails during autumn and winter offers a unique challenge. Autumn paints the landscape in fiery hues. Winter blankets it in snow, redefining the British countryside’s beauty. There’ll be plenty of puddles to splash through and there’s no danger of over-heating in your off-road gear or helmet. The wet and muddy surfaces provide an exhilarating challenge that experienced riders thrive on.

Waterproof gear is a must when trail riding through the cooler seasons and even into spring. Adventure trail riding days with Phoenix equip you with wet weather kit and all the safety gear you need for a wet and wild adventure on two wheels.

Beginners benefit from summer trail riding as the chalky tracks of Salisbury Plains and Kent’s North Downs provide more grip when they’re dry. Phoenix trail riding guides always choose Green Lanes and paths suited to your skill and experience while ensuring your thirst for adventure is sated.

Top motorcycle trail riding routes

One of the most enticing aspects of trail riding is the opportunity to explore scenic tracks on your dirt bike. The UK offers a diverse landscape, and Phoenix Trails has carefully curated a selection of the best motorcycle trail riding routes for all skill levels. Each promises a unique and breathtaking experience.

1. Salisbury Plains: a canvas of historic extremes

With rolling hills and expansive vistas, Salisbury Plains is a paradise for trail riders. Picture yourself cruising through wide-open spaces, surrounded by prehistoric landmarks, or coming across the eerie abandoned village of Imber.

Salisbury Plains’ chalk trails provide excellent grip, especially during dry conditions. This location is ideal for riders seeking a mix of adventure and picturesque views in a landscape of extremes.

2. North Kent Downs: chalky trails and stunning views

The North Kent Downs offer a contrasting terrain with chalky trails. Expect excellent grip during dry summer months but a challenging slippery surface in wet weather. It’s an ideal destination for beginners and experienced riders. And one that promises adventure filled with natural beauty.

3. West Pennines: rugged and unforgiving trail riding

If a rugged and challenging adventure is what you seek, the West Pennines are perfect! The terrain here is unforgiving, but the rewards are immense. Navigating through rocky paths, dense forests, and exhilarating ascents will thrill and challenge in equal parts. It’s an opportunity to test your skills and experience the elation of conquering demanding trails.

4. The Peak District: nature’s playground

The Peak District is a UNESCO National Park. A trail riding experience here is like no other. You’ll be immersed in the beauty of Britain’s countryside, with its lush green valleys and dramatic peaks.
