SARN HE­LEN SOUTH

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature -

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!
