    Lake District given half a chance but the north downs is a great option within easy reach of London

  2. Chris 26/10/2012 at 10:08 am #

    South Downs, plus it’s near the parents and a well stocked toolbox.

  3. Rupert H 26/10/2012 at 10:10 am #

    Cheddar Valley, Somerset. Love the summer mountain bikefest there too.

  8. Tom 26/10/2012 at 10:15 am #

    Sussex country side. Plenty of good climbs, cliff top rides and beautiful scenery.

  9. David 26/10/2012 at 10:18 am #

    London at night, the best way to explore the city and meet interesting people

  10. TrekTrev 26/10/2012 at 10:18 am #

    Biggin Hill – OUCH!

  11. Pavan 26/10/2012 at 10:20 am #

    Loch Lomond National Park

  13. Pete 26/10/2012 at 10:27 am #

    Sherwood Pines – some proper trails to test the mountain bike and plenty of long wide cinder tracks for spending time with the family

  14. Andy ZE2 26/10/2012 at 10:29 am #

    Shetland, quiet roads, wide uninterupted view, in fact so good that I moved here!

  15. Jeroen (NL) 26/10/2012 at 10:30 am #

    National Park Hoge Veluwe (NL) during snowtimes.

  16. Kevin F 26/10/2012 at 10:31 am #

    It has to be the Aberdeenshire part of the Grampians

  17. Chris Mathieson 26/10/2012 at 10:33 am #

    When I’m not cycling in London,I love the lanes of Kent particularly the Weald and around the Medway Estuary(Dickens Country)!!

  18. Jory smith 26/10/2012 at 10:38 am #

    Cornwall. But I do wish there was less hills.

  19. James Mc 26/10/2012 at 10:40 am #

    Northumberland. Fantastic roads and scenery!

  20. Martin 26/10/2012 at 10:42 am #

    I live in Bristol and my favourite quick (95 minute) route is the national cycle route No 3 through Whitchurch via Chew Magna to Chew Valley lake and back again.

  21. Sam Williams 26/10/2012 at 10:46 am #

    The (very hilly) Mendips

    • Rich M 26/10/2012 at 12:12 pm #

      bit boring this, as some of it is part of my commute, but I really like Richmond Park..

  22. Andy 26/10/2012 at 10:50 am #

    The New Forest – great cycle paths.

  23. Paul B. 26/10/2012 at 10:52 am #

    The lanes of the West Sussex & Hampshire border. Traffic is not too heavy and the drivers are invariably considerate to cyclists. Even ‘White Van Man’ usually holds back to make sure he gives you a wide berth when overtaking. Some of the hills around the South Downs can be challenging, but that all adds to the enjoyment. If you get fed up with hills you can always ride along the coast. A lovely place to live and cycle.

  24. Christian 26/10/2012 at 10:53 am #

    The South Cornish coast.
    Afterwards I never want to see a hill again but it’s worth it for the views!

  25. Lauri 26/10/2012 at 10:55 am #

    South Downs

  26. Matt 26/10/2012 at 10:56 am #

    Swansea’s Gower Peninsula, miles upon miles of beautiful hills and coastline…

  27. K 26/10/2012 at 10:56 am #

    Norfolk! It’s flat and beautiful!

  28. Jon 26/10/2012 at 11:01 am #

    Mousehold Heath or the Norfolk Broads tow paths.

  29. Chia Huei Tan 26/10/2012 at 11:07 am #

    I lived in Bath, and the city and its surrounds are just gorgeous….The River Avon trail has parts open for cyclists and it’s really nice :)

  30. Ben Thorp 26/10/2012 at 11:09 am #

    I mostly cycle in Glasgow these days, but it has to be the Somerset Flats – flat by name, flat by nature, wonderful countryside and views.

  31. Tom Davies 26/10/2012 at 11:14 am #

    The Taff trail, Cardiff. Cycling through an autumnal sea of yellow leaves is beautiful this time of year. Just watch out for punctures!!

  32. Christine 26/10/2012 at 11:15 am #

    The wonderful flats of Norfolk – I could cycle there forever no matter what the weather!!!

  33. Mike 26/10/2012 at 11:18 am #

    The back roads and lanes of Cornwall. Full of hills, unfortunately, but the sights you see as you crest those hills on the coastal roads are tremendous.
    And course, there’s always the joy of swooping down the other side of the hill – carefully!

  34. Jason 26/10/2012 at 11:19 am #

    Going to sound like a masochist but I love cycling around the hills of Sheffield and the Peak District. Lived there for a few years and I seriously believe there is not a single flat to be found. Always feel exhausted but wonderful after a cycle around there!

  35. Corin 26/10/2012 at 11:20 am #

    The Lake District and Northumberland for stunning scenery, challenging climbs and local hospitality.

  36. Anke 26/10/2012 at 11:21 am #

    The A4074 from Iffley to Harcourt Arboretum in Oxfordshire

  37. Bjorn 26/10/2012 at 11:24 am #

    The hills around Huddersfield. Holme Moss and around are a good challenge for a Londoner like me.

  38. @pinemarten100 26/10/2012 at 11:34 am #

    Cornwall heritage coast line.

  39. Rob Elliott 26/10/2012 at 11:34 am #

    As I’m not from London, I’d say it has to be the Moors, an easy cycle from Plymouth, amazing views and great trails.

    When I lived in Belfast, I used to enjoy my daily commute into the city centre, along with other places around Northern Ireland.

  40. Matt P 26/10/2012 at 11:44 am #

    The Highlands

  41. Andrew Short 26/10/2012 at 11:48 am #

    The North Devon coastline and Exmoor National Park!

  42. Peter 26/10/2012 at 11:51 am #

    B r i s t o l !!!

  43. Toni 26/10/2012 at 11:54 am #

    Easy peasy….the New Forest. The perfect place to combine my love of cycling with my love of horses!

  44. Scott Burman 26/10/2012 at 12:07 pm #

    On my way to work on the Wivenhoe path from Wivenhoe to Colchester along the river Colne. Going home again is even better!

  45. Dominic 26/10/2012 at 12:11 pm #

    My Favourite place outside London to ride is the route up the side of the Derwent Valley from Duffield to Bolehill, a long climb, though not steep, wends it’s way up to the High Peak trail through the shelter of the overhanging trees of Chevinside. The landscape opens out as you gain the altitude into green fields. At the top, you have a choice, is it to Wirkworth or Cromford for a cuppa and a slice of reviving cake?

  46. Alex 26/10/2012 at 12:16 pm #

    The beautiful hills of the Wye Valley… Nothing beats the winding around the lanes at Symonds Yat.

  47. Ana 26/10/2012 at 12:19 pm #

    Afan forest.

  48. Robin P Williams 26/10/2012 at 12:20 pm #

    With my Brompton, I can pack the bike and take it anywhere:
    I am definitely a Brompton convert!

    not so good out of town though:
    I do love York on a bike – there is so much history to cycle past…

    • Mick Blackman 26/10/2012 at 12:29 pm #

      Good morning Robin,

      You don’t have to live in London to join, we have members from across the world.
      Be safe.

  49. Graham 26/10/2012 at 12:22 pm #

    North Lancashire, it has a great combination of hills, dedicated cycle paths and seaside.

  50. Mick Blackman 26/10/2012 at 12:26 pm #

    It has to be the country lanes in the Cambidgeshire/Hertfordshire borders.
    Just outside Cambridge, the roads are top quality, smooth, well kept and there are some wonderful rides along the river banks.
    You really do have to see it to believe it.
