Extreme sports, part III – Motorsports

In the previous episodes of Extreme sports in Britain we’ve been up in the air, and below sea level. Now it’s finally time for my own favourite extreme sport, and we’ll start off with my favourite vehicle – the dirt bike.

Motocross & Enduro
Britain’s shifting terrain is perfect for those who like to get an exhilarating experience in the dirt. There are a lot of MX tracks to practice your skills on throughout the UK like the 30 year old motocross circuit in Chippenham.

If you want to see Britain’s beautiful landscape and still feel the exhilarating speed on the back of a two-wheeled monster, Ride Adventure offers great off road tours in Wales.

Quadbikes
Quadbike is much like a motorcycle but with four wheels instead of two. It’s much easier to manoeuvre and you only need a normal drivers licence to drive it. Try driving through tough terrain in Scotland’s wild-back country or in South West England.

4×4 – Offroad vehicles
Another great activity for off road enthusiast in Britain is 4×4 vehicles like jeeps and land rovers. There are many places around Britain where you can rent a Land Rover or jeep to go on organized tours with guides and different difficulty levels.
