Mountain bike short break activities across the UK
The United Kingdom provides a wide choice of destinations for superb mountain biking opportunities.
Mountain biking in North Wales
gr8trails offers a wide variety of mountain biking activities for all abilities. From purpose built mountain bike trails at Llandegla, Betws-y-coed and the original Coed-y-Brenin, to the 'Snowdonia Summit Challenge' biking up the flanks and summits of the Snowdonia range. North Wales truly offers a biking adventure for everyone.
The gr8trails team has been biking at all of the North Wales purpose built mountain bike centres over the past 15 years on various short breaks and weekends away. We have seen mountain biking as an activity develop and grow, and our mission is to make all this adventure accessible for everyone to enjoy.
Mountain biking in the Derbyshire Peak District
The Peak District, we feel, probably offers the greatest variety of activities around the Dark Peaks which can appeal to a mixed level group with a cross section of abilities between induction and intermediate levels.
Mountain biking in the Lake District
The Lake District is well known for its dramatic scenery, making biking there adventurous and great fun! The Lakes can offer extensive man made mountain biking trails to suit all abilities whilst on your short break. From the purpose built mountain bike trail centres at Grizedale and Whinlatter to the bespoke gr8trails routes which will take you more off the beaten track.
The gr8trails team has been biking around the Lake District National Park for over 20 years. We can guide you round some of the famous bits but we can also share some of what we believe are the lakes greatest secrets with some of the lesser known routes.
