  • Long Mynd

    This Long Mynd mountain bike track in the Shropshire Hills is graded as hard/ difficult. It is 27.6 miles long and starts in Church Stretton, Shropshire. It’s a winch and plummet route that reaches the ridge five times, with little riding on the flat in between. It takes in the best descents the hills have to offer but also a lot of hard climbs. While your legs will definitely be sore you should finish with a big grin on your face.

  • Long Mynd and the Devil's Chair

    Long Mynd and the Devil's Chair mountain bike track in Shropshire is graded moderate and is 24.8 miles long. It starts from Church Stretton. It climbs over Long Mynd to the Stiperstones before traversing the ridge and returning. There is one really hard climb, that being the first one out of Carding Mill Valley, but after that the route consists of long but steady climbs and three 2 mile descents with nothing too technical, just fun and fast. With 9 miles spent on quite country lanes the ride does seem shorter than the full distance would suggest. The ride starts off in the centre of Church Stretton, conveniently next to a Co-op and some public toilets, at a pay and display car park which isn't too expensive.
