MCN has joined forces with bike insurance broker Devitt to uncover the UK’s best biking destinations.

We want to build a map of the UK’s top bike spots: the twistiest roads, friendliest dealers, best value bed and breakfasts, and the most entertaining biker pubs.

By helping us to create the UK’s most comprehensive biking atlas you could also be in with a chance of winning an amazing UK touring holiday for two people, organised by Extra Mile Bike Tours, worth £2500!

Entering is simple, all you need to do is visit, go to the Biking Intel page and mark all your favourite top biking spots before
30 July.

Devitt and MCN will then shortlist the 10 best destinations and these will go through to the final voting stage.

Voting for the UK’s top biking destination begins on 8 August, with the winning destination being the location which has received the most votes at midnight on 10 September. Where multiple entrants have nominated the same winning location, the competition winner will be chosen at random.
