With cycling booming in Britain, more and more people are discovering the stunning roads from across the country.
While tackling fierce Alpine passes, brutal ascents in the Dolomites, the cobbles of northern France and Belgium, and grueling Pyrenean climbs will always be near the top of many cyclists’ bucket lists, we’re also blessed with incredible roads of our own.
We’ve teamed up with MINI to give you the chance to check some of them out for yourself by winning a MINI Hatch loan vehicle for the weekend, as well as a half-day track experience in a MINI Challenge Cooper Class.
For leg-burning climbs, breathtaking scenery and picturesque countryside, cyclists need look no further than the green, green grass of home – and you’ll travel in style to get you and your bike there.
From the UK’s toughest climb in Scotland, to picture-perfect roads in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, we’ve picked out six of Britain’s ‘must-ride’ routes over the following pages.
