Mountain bikers have a habit of going round in circles. To be fair, it’s easy to see why – trail centres have circular routes, you might have a set ride that takes you from home to trail and back home again, and so on.

Why not try something a bit different? The MTB equivalent of bicycle touring. It doesn’t have to be a long trip, just a two or three day point-to-point ride. Carry a tent or bivi bag, your food, a little stove and sleep out under the stars, curled up next to your beloved bike.

If you don’t fancy carrying your gear, or you want a bigger adventure, there are several companies offering week long point to point rides in various locations like Scotland.
