Fort William Coast to Coast

Gravel route on Traill Dr, Sandaig, Angus Council, Scotland

"Total Terrain: "There are many beautiful coast-to-coast routes in Scotland, and we have a couple in our collection. The UK4 route was mapped out by Paul Rogers and starts near Glenelg on the coast of Kyle Rhea, and makes it way to Fort William and the Great Glen. At Fort Augustus it turns east to travel over the Cairngorms and ends at Montrose on the east coast. The ride as a whole is a great experience in true cross country riding. It runs up and down glens, crosses the Scottish watershed , and takes you through many different sceneries and some very remote places. Be prepared! The route is mostly off-road and on “land-rover” type tracks which can be ridden by those with technical skills suitable to blue grades at trail centres (though obviously with a lot more endurance required). However these are interspersed with some very technical “black” type sections: Day 1, the climb out of Corran and the descent into Kinloch Hourn is really difficult and requires a high degree of technical skill (“black grade”). A quote from Paul: “The descent is one of the steepest bits of track I have ever ridden and stayed upright”. Day 2, the Correyairack pass out of Fort Augustus runs to about 700m and although a reasonable surface, can be very difficult in bad weather. The alternative around the mountain is a very long ride on tarmac, close on 70 miles. The descent off the pass requires good technical skill as there are perhaps 30 - 50 drainage gullies to cross. Set your tyre pressures hard and take it steady. Red grade. Day 5, the climb of Mt Keen is tough and you should be prepared to push some or all of it. The route doesn't actually go over the summit, but on the shoulder just below it. The main descent is made up of quite large gravel/rocks and for the experienced mountain biker, is a lot of fun. Red/black . There is no formal site for this route, so you can download a zip file containing GPX for the full route here. Again, there is no definitive C2C, so for another version visit Mountain Bikes Routes UK who have a book for sale by Tim Woodcock. This has optional route diversions that will fit a variety of abilities.""

NDW SDW Link Loop

Gravel route from Velmead Rd to Aldershot Rd, Hampshire, England

"Total Terrain: "This link route takes you on a picturesque journey by some of canals and rivers of Sussex, and enables you to ride both the North and South Downs ways to make a more interesting journey. In fact this link route is a loop, so you have a choice of an east or a west link route. It uses parts of the Shipwrights way, the Basingstoke canal and the River Wey to make a mixed route that should be accessible to most abilities; but beware of a couple of steep (red ascents) that some may need to push. See Route notes for more. Our thanks to Ted Gomm who mapped the route, wrote the route notes and provided the pictures to give you a flavour of what you'll see along the way.""

South Downs Way

Gravel route on The Broadway, East Sussex, England

"Total Terrain: "The South Downs Ridge line has been walked for thousands of years, and can still be enjoyed today as a walking and cycling path. Almost the whole route is bridleway and off-road. It will take you through rolling countryside, from Eastbourne to Winchester with plenty of support and facilities along the way. The route is described and documented in various sites. The main site is the National Trails which is in the link below, but you can also find information at and at Bikedowns.""

LeJog Sarn Helen Link Route North

Many thanks to John Hanahoe who mapped out the route through Wales.""

North Downs Way

Gravel route from Roman Rd to Moor Park Ln, Surrey, England

"Total Terrain: "The North Downs way is a beautiful route stretching from Dover to Farnham. The riding is rarely technical (though there are some!) and there are portions on tarmac. The route goes northwest from Dover, through Canterbury and then turns south to cross the Kent Downs toward the High Weald, both Areas of Natural Beauty. You’ll then travel north to the Surrey Hills, and on towards Dorking, Guildford and Surrey. There is no formal site for this route, so you can download GPX for the full route here. There are Route variants available. For one see Peter Edwards book here which also includes a link to the South Downs.""

The Three Coasts of Wales

Dirt route from Lower Gate St to Trawler Rd, Swansea, Wales

""This route travels from the north of Wales to the south via Cardigan Bay. It has been developed by Paul Rogers, and incorporates some of the classic Sarn Helen route, but with adaptations for accommodation needs and avoiding footpaths. The route starts in Conwy, and progresses down to Swansea via Aberystwyth largely off-road. It travels through both Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons so a good degree of fitness and ability is required: the route is not all “land-rover” track, and there are many technical sections. The most technical section is Brecon to Swansea, virtually all off road, most on marked sections of Sarn Helen, and quite knarly in places. Much of this can be bypassed though using the road from Ystradfellte to Glyn Neath and then the canal to Neath and onto Swansea. ..... There are other versions of Welsh north/south routes, and to see an alternative visit Mountain Bikes Routes UK who have a book for sale by Tim Woodcock. This route is more off-road and has some very technical sections." - Total Terrain ("
