3 amazing public places to ride a bike in the UK

Cycling is not only an excellent way to shed off some pounds and keep our bodies healthy, but riding a bicycle also allows us to go to the best places with minimal cost and more heartfelt, breathtaking experiences, literally.

For any enthusiast, whether pro or not, as long as there is land and the right type of gear and bikes, cycling can be anywhere. As long as you know how to balance your single-track vehicle, the location should not be a problem.

However, if you’re also after the view and the landscape, then you may have to go a little farther from home. If you happen to be in the UK, your problem will not lie on where to go. Rather it would be an issue of where to go first.

When in the United Kingdom, there are a lot of areas to go cycling. Imagine choosing among four countries, with each nation having various bike rides to exhibit. Here are my top three personal favorites.

3 Lake District National Park

If the crowd doesn’t upset you much, Lake District is a must-go. The scene is perfect to be enjoyed while riding your bike. If it does, then go biking along the northern and western lakes.

If you haven’t been here before, let me give you a heads up. There’ll be slopes and passes making your bike ride an adventure. If you have enough guts, try the Hardknott and Wrynose passes, between Eskdale and Langdale. For a more action-packed adventure, try going back and forth. There are other areas to explore if you still have time, energy, and air.

2 The Yorkshire Dales

If you want to experience the first stage of 2014 Tour de France yourself, go to this area of standout scenery. Professional riders come to the Dales to train for their competitions, with its quiet roads and landscape.

History and science come your way as you drive along the Dales. See limestone formations, moorlands, and historical villages nearby. Whether you prefer a smooth ride or a challenging bike adventure, you’ll find the perfect spot at the Dales.

1 Moidart and Glencoe

In Scotland, you’ll find Moidart as a remote area 20 miles west of Fort William while Glencoe arguably the most romantic or cinematic Glen in the area, more than ten miles below Fort William.

The 80-mile long Glenuig Loop stretches from Fort William to Moidart, where you can take the Coran ferry to Ardgour. On your return, you’ll pass ‘Road to the Isles’ road, where you move along Ben Nevis, Britain’s tallest mountain, elevated at least 1300m from its base.

These are just three places where you can go cycling around the UK. If these places are far from where you are and traveling will be an issue. Don’t fret. There is always a nearby place where you can go biking while enjoying the scenery.

Better yet, while you haven’t found the place to be, start outside your home and explore.…
