Extreme Mountain biking can give you one of the biggest adrenaline rushes of your entire life, but it is also an extremely dangerous pastime, so you must have the proper training, patience, and self-reliance before adventuring to any one of these top ten places to ride extreme.
10. Afan Forest Park – Port Talbot, United Kingdom
The trails in Afan Forest Park cover over 130km with challenging single track climbs, rock drops, berm and cliff traverses, twisting single tracks, demanding descents, and some seriously rocky sections. It is known as one of the best parks for mountain biking in England, and you must be in great shape before trying the most advanced trails.
9. Sauze d’Oulx freeride, Alpi Bike Resort – Torino, Italy
This area of Italy was made for mountain biking, and the Sauze d’Oulx trail takes advantage of the hill’s natural dips, channels, bowls, and highlands to make for a flowy and fast expedition. Sauze is a great place for everyone and has plans to expand and improve trails in years to come.
8. Buffalo Creek Trail – Pine, Colorado
This trail can be summed up into one word: epic. This 14 mile trail climbs up strong and steady then whips you over sliprock with some hairy turns, brings you through some burned areas and leaves you exhausted at the finish. Best to hit this trail after a heavy rain, as it can get very sandy at times.
