Mountain Bike Trails & The Long Mynd
LongMynd Mountain Bike Trails
The Long Mynd is in South Shropshire’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is a series of hills with steep gullies locally known as Batches. In fact Minton Batch is regularly featured in MBR and What Mountain Bike magazine as one of the best single track descents in the UK, and its only minutes away from our centre. The centre and mountain bike trails have been featured in Single Track, MBR and MBUK. Also featured in video edits on Dirt and Wideopens websites.
Pole Bank, the highest point of Long Mynd is 516 metres above sea level and on a good day Snowdon, Cadair Idris and the Brecon Beacons can easily be seen as can the Malvern hills to the south. There are many excellent trails to explore and there are trails to suit everyone and every ability.
Way Marked Mountain Bike Trails
The old name MTB-SHROPSHIRE was where it all started, owner Richard Davies and his team had a vision for making mountain biking more accessible to everyone on the Long Mynd. So they devised a simple way marking system for the area for mountain bike trails. And got to work!
We now work in partnership with The National Trust and various other groups. We have produced our own trail map of the Longmynd, easy to follow way marked routes using a number system allows you to create your own ride depending on time and ability. All our experienced staff at Blazing Bikes (our onsite mountain bike shop) are there to help you plan your day to ensure you get the best riding Shropshire has to offer.
