3 UK Electric Mountain Bike Trails to Try This Summer

Cutgate Peak District, Derbyshire
electric mountain bike trail cutgate peak district
E MTB Trail cutgate peak
Distance: 4.6 miles
Difficulty: hard

This challenging route is a favourite of thrill seeking mountain bikers as well as equestrians and ramblers. Cut gate is best to ride in summer as the ‘bog of doom’ (the colloquial name for the trail’s Pete bog) presents a hazard when riding during the wetter months. However, various organisations including ‘mend our mountains’ and ‘peak Horsepower Equestrian Access group’ have recently raised a collective £75,000 for the repair of the bog. There are few trees and no shelter on the Cut gate route and so it is ideal for MTB-ers who like their trails rugged and exposed. Cut gate is a single trail but can be adapted into a loop with some careful planning.
The North Face Trail, Grizedale Forest, Lake District

Distance: 10.5 miles
Difficulty: Medium to hard

The North Face is trail is a perfect combination of rough and ready single track and fire road. The rougher trails are complete with rocks and exposed routes whilst the fireroad is a welcome rest after a challenging climb. There are mixed opinions about the difficulty of this trail amongst the MTB community, however, we believe this is a trail best suited to experienced and physically fit mountain bikers. The trail does also include some sections the less experienced rider can enjoy so may be a good choice if you’re bringing an amateur rider along.
Downhill Rush, Epping Forest, London
E Bike racing downhill
Distance: 0.5 miles
Difficulty: Medium to Hard

The clue is in the name with this trail: if you’re looking for a thrilling and fast downhill ride this is the track for you. Whilst only 892m in length (which will take you an average of around 3 minutes to complete) this tiny track is deceptively thrilling. Located in London’s Epping Forest, this trail offers an excellent escape for city dwellers where they can shake off the cobwebs by flying downhill at high speed. Once you’ve had a go (or two) on this trail you may want to explore the rest of the forest which is packed with equally exciting and further challenging trails.
