I’m bored with UK trails, where else can I go?
Answered by Andy Davidson, MCN adventure expert
The Hard Alpi Tour 24-Hour Rally is where you need to be. MCN has been twice because itõs the most epic rally in Europe. Itõs mad and gruelling, but non-competitive and all on easy fire tracks so anyone can give it a go. You enter as a team, so youõll need at least two willing mates with bikes. Ride to Italy, or take your bikes in a van, and get ready for hundreds of miles of breathtaking scenery through the gorgeous Alps with stunning backdrops and a thousand friendly faces. Youõll have pre-set waypoints installed on your sat-nav so itõs pretty easy to navigate without getting lost. The routes snake up and over mountains, through deep forests and into the clouds. Riding through the night, on narrow pathways with sheer vertical drops and no barriers isnõt a walk in the park though, but itõs incredible nonetheless, so have a go! Entry is £100 and this yearõs event is in September. ■ Details: over2000riders.com
