GETTIN’ GRIZZLY

Tom Fenton’s search for the must-do trails of the UK has resulted in some surprising soul-searching. And a great lap of Grizedale Forest in the Lake District.

TRAIL HUNTER EXPLORES THOSE MUST-DO RIDES THAT SHOULD BE ON EVERY BRITISH MOUNTAIN BIKER’S BUCKET LIST.

‘What do you want me to do with this big roll of bubble wrap?’ I asked my boss.

‘Just pop it in the corner.’ It took me three hours. Ha.

When Chipps asked if I wanted to write about the ‘must-ride’ trails of the UK, I was pretty excited. Ride all my favourite routes and get paid to do so? Hot diggity. I rushed out, rode awesome trails, wrote equally awesome words, and generally had a great time.

Then I ran out of ideas. What exactly was a must-ride trail? Nothing seemed good enough to qualify and those that did had already been done. I asked my friends. That didn’t work. They all disagreed. ‘What about trail X?’ ‘Rubbish.’ ‘Trail Y?’ ‘Nah.’ ‘Z?’ ‘You’re joking.’ Turns out that one person’s must-ride is another’s must-not.
