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.
