Riding bikes through sloppy slick singletrack is as quintessential to the British as afternoon tea and biscuits. If Wales isn’t on your winter riding bucket list, just follow along with Manon Carpenter, Monet Adams, and Veronique Sandler in their quest to explore the region. They’ll sway your opinion.
Llangollen—pronounced LAN-GOTH-LUHN—is a Welsh mountain biking paradise. If you don’t mind getting a little muddy, then there's everything to ride from steep tech to proper triple jumps that keep you gripped. Plus, is there a better way to end a ride than with a pint of Welsh ale? Cheers to that.
