    +1 for the UK. I did a trip there in '07 and can't wait to go back! 7Stanes and Coed y Brenin are must do's. Stanes is in southern Scotland and CyB is in northern Wales. I have friends who run a guide service in Snowdonia (most northern Wales) called Bikefax.com. Check 'em out and get their guides! Tell 'em I sent ya, may not get you a discount but it'll let 'em know how you found 'em. As for CyB, there's a shop at the Visitor Centre but a better one in the town of Dolgellau called Dolgellau Cycles. It's only a few minutes drive from CyB Visitor Centre. If you go to CyB, stay at Cae Gwyn Farm - they have a B&B, bunkhouse, camping,or an RV you can stay in . Washer / dryer onsite, nice restroom facilities for campers / bunkhouse. The B&B is very comfy and affordable. Oh, they have wi-fi too so you can stay in touch with home and world news.

    I'm hoping to do trips to southeast China, Bosnia, and the UK as soon as details are worked out with contacts there.

    Good luck! Maybe we can partner on a trip sometime. Let me know if you want to come to Pisgah National Forest in western North Carolina -- EPIC east coast riding!

    The Colorado Trail

    You should also consider the Colorado Trail. 500 Miles from Denver to Durango that can take about 20 days to complete. It can be done with or without vehicular help and there are great towns along the way to re-supply in. I have attached a link to a very informative website........

    Wow thats some awesome photos on here and so many places to one day check out hopefully. I know you already have a few places in Mexico that look beautiful. But there is another place called Punta San Carlos that is growing. The riding is amazing flowing single track with a huge 2,000 foot mesa behind it all. worth the hike/ride to the top for an amazing view like no other. And No one around beside the local fish camp that brings in fresh fish and crab to enjoy. Also are able to learn to Stand up Paddle and Surf if desired. You just don't know until You GO!!

    I heard/read a lot of good things about the Spanish Pyrenees and Northern Spain in general (Navarra/Aragon).
    Sierra de Guara, Bardenas Reales, Sierra de Urbasa, Ordesa (National Park), ...

    I must say I'm curious about your preferences in Italian roads and locations...

    Although you already have Balkans, but when I was in Romania this summer to visit my GF I was just stunned… The Cluj Area looks best for MTB riding to me, but all over the country are amazing spots… also Bavaria and the Black Forrest offer unique experiences in Germany.

    what about costa rica? I'm trying to plan our Honey Moon somewhere that's warm in November (2013) and has technical mtb as well as beaches and monkeys. CR seems to have all of those, offering a trip would be something to look into

    Arizona has a new trail and it may be the most fun trail in the state. It often swoops thru drainages and is in a Saguaro forest directly below the Superstition Mountains. Gold Canyon's K-Trail is really sweet. Best time to ride it, November thru April.

    I visited your site, I see that there is little Europe, I think that to put a little bit might be a good idea.
    If you are looking for adventure & culture you have a very large range between Spain, France, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Greece, Poland etc.
    It is really impossible to summarize but these are countries that offer what you are looking for.

    European MTBing

    Hi Toscana,

    we are indeed expanding in Europe. In addition to our Slovenia/Croatia trip, we're also adding an amazing new 8-day trip in the Swiss/Italian Alps (Davos + Livigno area). We hope to expand to other European destinations in 2014 and beyond - there's so much amazing riding there!
    Keep ridin',

    How about Brazil?!
    Chapada Diamantina is the best MTB spot here! Although it s not very famous yet for MTBs… lol
    Amazing landscape, very safe, insane waterfalls, tons of km/miles of single tracks, a lot of history, great infrastructure for tourists…

    It is in the State of Bahia, so you can also double the trip with lots of paradise beaches at the shore (where you have to fly in).

    Check this out:
    Brasil Ride
    A big XC race event that happens there every year.

    There are lots of AM trials as well.

    There are already some companies working with guided groups of MTBers there, with english spoken guides. You just have to associate to one of them and it's done.

    Hope it helps.

    Cheers!

    Will be interesting to see what you schedule. Lots of action in the Graubunden Livigno area

    Usually they are. But there are also fascinating places in the plains or in the hills.
    It depends on how a certain area has been humiliated by concrete, roads or some type of agriculture.

    I'll throw Yangshou, Guangxi, China into the ring as an off the beaten path option. The scenery is unlike anything I've seen else where. Skip the more well know neighboring city Guilin for Yangshuo. Bike till you drop during the day and there are tons of other activities in the city and on the Li River for the rest of your time there.

    If / when the Pacific Crest Trail is opened to biking, the Oregon stretch will be an epic ride that can be readily supported by a tour organization.
    Road access is good, the trail is more than 95% ridable (I've hiked it and that's my estimate anyway), and lots of people will want to do it and will need a support structure, as solo / unsupported rides will be no fun at all.
    And of course detailed guide books already exist, again making logistics easy.

    If you have to choose one MTB XC location in the US - what will it be?
