Top great places for cycling in the UK (Part 3)

New Forest National Park

While the peaks of the New Forest are not as long or steep as previously mentioned, beautiful forest trails are undulating in this national park.

With diverse landscapes, all looking very different until the end, believe it or not, the deep forests to pass through, you also have open landscapes that can be further challenged by the fierce winds at sea, leading to the horse-drawn landscape along the sea.

Lymington and the Solent is a beautiful area for you to stop by. Beaulieu and its famous motorbike museum are also a beautiful place to visit while riding with plenty of bike-friendly cafes with open arms, some even giving loyalty cards. Be stamped when you cycling for them.

You can also get into other attractions by going down to Buckler’s Hard and the Solent National Nature Reserve north. Brockenhurst and Lyndhurst are the regional centers of the region, with roads leading in all directions.

Pembrokeshire

Located in the deepest southwest of Wales, the beautiful coastal roads of Pembrokeshire are among the most beautiful in the country, some great beaches, cliffs and vast expanses of open land.

Head north from the sea and walk on the hills and valleys of historic Welsh countryside and hamlets. Celtic Trail West at 575km and Teifi Trail 162km, by Sustran, are the perfect place to bring them in. While they cover most of the landscape of Wales, you can make a small portion of both routes while riding in Pembrokeshire.

Cycling to Tenby’s colorful harbor to dine on the beach on the beach to enjoy the clear blue water in the south of the county, or head to the Strumble Head lighthouse in the northwest, cycle out until you have to walk across the bridge to reach the landmark.

Cornwall

Cornwall is a true gem of the south coast. Of course, many cyclists flock to Land’s End to begin their adventure to John O’Groats in Scotland, but Cornwall has a lot of trips you don’t have to look for in the north.

Mount Loop Michael’s Land is an 83km long ride that takes you around some of the best areas south of Cornwall with lots of ups and downs to cycling on the route. You can get out of Polzeath to Rick Stein’s fries restaurant in Padstow, explore Rock’s delights and then ride to Doc Martin’s house at Port Isaac.

Top great places for cycling in the UK (Part 2)

In the south of the area, you can climb the hardest anywhere. There with Zoncolan in Italy and Angliru in Spain, Harknott Pass is a nightmare road.

With slopes reaching over 30 percent leading to a Roman fortress. This is a list of interesting experiences for many cyclists. Wrynose Pass, the climb from the other side could not be easier, with the same slope to the top.

Cairngorms National Park

It’s a pity if you miss out on one of these best UK climbing spots. Cairngorm National Park is the perfect place if you love sports and wildlife because both have plentiful supplies.

With some of the best cycling routes in the country. This is really a beautiful place for you to ride a bicycle. You also have some real challenges for you as well as marking Laungorm mountain off the list of paths to go up.

Admittedly, you only ride to the parking lot before taking the ski lift to the top. But it is still a great thing to ride on your bike by yourself. And with views on Loch Garten, it’s really worth it. Aviemore is a great center to move out, where you can truly escape in every direction to explore some of the most stunning roads in the country.

Scottish Islands

In the far north, Isle of Skye, Mull, Arran, Jura, Cumbrae of Scotland and the rest are places that should never be taken for granted and if you come here by bike, make sure that You appreciate the landscape but don’t hurt this incredible wilderness.

The roads are scarce on these islands, you’re not here to climb and famous names. You are here to see some of the most beautiful scenes in the world and some of the rarest wildlife you can find.

The Cumbrae Island round trip is a beautiful one on a sunny day, at about 16km around it is a very short, but worth a visit.

Of course, if you go further north, you’ll come to Hebrides, where you can follow the Hebridean 297km roundabout route to give you a real challenge, cross 10 islands and six routes and include two ferries. The route takes two to six days depending on the capacity.

Isle of Mull is another popular spot for adventure-seeking cyclists. Mull is an island much larger than Cumbrae and appears about 70km around. Beware of large numbers of red deer on the island as well as golden eagles.

Top great places for cycling in the UK (Part 1)

The UK is currently applying a national isolation order to control the corona virus pandemic. However, if possible, plan your upcoming travel in the foggy country. Especially there are some great places for you to experience cycling in this beloved country.

Isolation is becoming more and more familiar to us as the corona virus situation worsens worldwide. In the meantime, we have more time with family and ourselves. So why don’t we plan our upcoming trips so that we are refreshed.

So here is a list of 8 places in the UK you should go by bike after the isolation order and this whole Covid-19 nightmare is over.

Isle of Wight

Probably one of the most underrated places for cycling for you. The island just off the southern coast of the British continent is a beautiful and diverse landscape to ride. Experience windswept cliffs, winding country roads, sea walks and many rural areas along with a series of challenging peaks, often quite steep. Isle of Wight is a great trip.

A lot of routes around the island, with my personal preference, ride around the whole island, have very clear signs and take you to roads you wouldn’t see without the route. Also, go where most cars can’t get in and go all the way to the southwest of the island for some spectacular views.

The garlic farm is also worth a visit with black garlic beer along with black garlic and chocolate ice cream, to be honest, it’s much better than you think!

Lake District

This is a place of some of the hardest roads you can find, Ho is a difficult place to go; But who doesn’t like a challenge?

The Honister Pass is almost certainly the most famous for its circular theater like the mountains on either side when the road zigzags to the majestic slate quarry at the top. Other great peaks in the northern lakes are the Whinlatter Pass, which was used during the British Tour of 2018.

Newlands Pass, another difficult climb that leads to the waterfall before heading down to Cool Butter or Braithwaite depending on how you ride. Watendlath is a dead end on the top, but is one of the most beautiful paths you can climb.
