28 reasons riding in the UK is amazing

Rule Britannia

The UK may be small

And we may have no real mountains

But we wouldn’t want to ride anywhere else


Let’s start with the trails

From the steeps of Llangollen

To the jumps of Fort William

From the rocks of Antur Stiniog

To the loam of the Surrey Hills

We have it all

It’s not just man made stuff though

Most of us have great riding just outside the door

Be that an epic day in the wilds

Or just your local woods

We also have the best national series in the world

And our local race scene is pretty good too

In fact, there’s nothing better than getting involved in your local scene

You’ll meet all sorts of characters

We also have some of the best riders in the world

From full time legends

To record breakers

To the next big thing

And that’s not including those behind the scenes

Or behind the microphone

Britain also produces some of the world’s best bikes

And components

We’re truly an island to celebrate

In the traditional British way
