The UK is full of great dirt bike trails, so the biggest challenge is choosing just one! Our country boasts thousands of miles of Green Lanes – BOATs and minor unsealed country roads begging to be explored on a trail bike trek.

Salisbury Plains for dirt biking escapades

This is a favourite spot for off-road adventures. Its rolling hills and expansive views, beckon you to conquer the wide-open spaces and marvel at the prehistoric landmarks.

It’ll give you the chance to immerse yourself in history unhindered by reading maps as you navigate chalk trails and soak in the breathtaking scenery.

North Kent Downs adventure biking

If a contrasting terrain is more your style, the North Kent Downs is perfect. This space offers chalky trails and stunning views that promise adventure mixed with natural beauty. Although you’ll have excellent grip in dry conditions, it’s a challenging surface in wet weather. This combination makes it ideal for riders of all skill levels.

West Pennines cross-country rides

If rugged and unforgiving terrain is more your style, look no further than the West Pennines. Put yourself to the test as you navigate rocky paths and dense forests. You’ll experience the thrill of conquering demanding trails and be awed by the breathtaking views that the area is famous for.

Peak excitement in the Peak District

Of course, there’s also the Peak District, a favourite holiday spot for Brits and international holidaymakers. The UNESCO National Park is renowned for its lush green valleys and dramatic peaks. With trails winding through this natural playground, trial bike riders are treated to an unforgettable journey full of natural delights and heart-stopping challenges.

Here’s what one of our previous trail riding enthusiasts had to say about a day out with us…

“We had a great day out with Justin and ‘the picker-upper’, Dennis.
Everything was there and ship shape when we arrived. Bikes in good nick. We had the minimum faff on the level two course and were out on the trails in no time. Justin was great as he could adapt what we did according to what we fancied and it never felt formulaic.
I’ll happily go back and asap.”

– Alwyn McMath, Trail rider with Phoenix Trails

Imagine spending a day navigating through the scenic beauty of the Pennines. Test your riding skills as you conquer rocky paths and dense forests.

But why stop there? If you’re keen on other types of adventure you can create truly unique experiences. Try combining trail riding days with any other adventure that suits your thirst for excitement. Imagine booking a cosy cottage in the heart of the Pennines and exploring the trails on a dirt bike one day and canyoning the next. Creating your own adventure holiday lets you choose the activities that keep the excitement coming.

All-inclusive dirt bike riding adventures

If you’d rather let someone else sort out the details and just pack your bags for adventure, an all-inclusive adventure might be better. Mad or Nomad is a great resource for finding a trail bike trek holiday in the UK. The adventures you’ll find include bed and breakfast along with exhilarating days. You can be tearing up the dirt across England, Wales and Scotland.

If you’re planning to book an inclusive dirt bike trekking holiday, there are a few things to keep in mind. Firstly, be sure to check out the company thoroughly and read reviews from previous customers. That will give you an idea about what to expect and help you they are reputable and reliable.

You should also consider your skill and comfort levels when choosing a package. Biting off more than you can chew is going to create tension in your off-road riding group. That doesn’t bode well for an adventurously fun holiday. Aim too easy and you won’t get the thrills you’re seeking. So don’t be afraid to ask questions or request different options to tailor the experience to your preferences.
