Best UK off-road routes
You don’t need to head to the Dakar to ride your adventure bike. Here are six great places to ride off-road in the UK
We relegate our adventure riding to dreams of far-flung lands. But there’s a whole world hidden below the tarmac, right here, on your doorstep. Some of us can’t see it, or have no idea how to find it – so we stick to pondering. And others dismiss it, assuming it’s reserved for men of Dakar calibre. But that’s just plain wrong – there are three times as many unsurfaced road miles as motorways in the UK – they’re called green lanes and they’re waiting for you. These trails are not ‘off-road’, but old roads and tracks with vehicular rights, making them perfect for adventure bikes and anyone who wants to test their bike in a variety of conditions. Here’s how to find and ride some of the easiest and best lanes in the UK.
