SARN HELEN SOUTH
Time A day or a week Difficulty rating Can be tricky What makes it special There’s a huge mix of incredible routes in this area. You’ll want to turn up, book yourself into a hotel and spend a week exploring them all. But Sarn Helen South is the one for beginners. The route starts off a little tricky as you’re faced with a slippery and steep climb at first, but once it tops out (at 1546ft above sea level) it’s relatively straightforward as you potter through woodland, post-industrial wasteland and open landscapes. This one is only open from June 1 – August 21. Best part The route edges into one of the most sparsely-populated and spectacular scenic areas of the UK. Watch out for Getting lost – the route crosses a motorsport arena and there are plenty hard routes nearby.
DID YOU KNOW? We have just over 2000 miles of motorway in the UK. But there are more than 6000 miles of green lanes and trails that are legal to ride motorbikes on!
