Mountain Biking

Welcome to the mountain bike section focused on MTB routes around London as well as in Scotland. Each ride below has a brief description and the GPS coordinates (in the .gpx format) that you can upload to your watch or other device. This section might be appreciated mainly by Londoners who don’t own a car (just like me). That’s the reason I go everywhere by train and all the GPS routes start from the nearest train station. So if you follow my route I promise you won’t get lost at any point…

If it looks like I’m missing out some good rides not far away from London please let me know in the comments at the bottom of this page. I promise I’ll give it a try as soon as I can and upload it here. Or you can just share your thoughts with me on any of the routes below.

And for those who wonder what I ride it’s Canyon Nerve AL 27.5. One really awesome bike!
