Where we ride

Our passion is mountain biking and we’re always out riding, looking for new challenges and adding on to our favourite routes.

We take our fun seriously.

The trails we ride are seriously fun.

We started out on epic cross country rides, moved onto sample trail centre routes across the UK.

Eventually we got bored.

  • Bored of following the same way marked routes.
  • Bored of being on a busy course with lots of other riders.
  • Bored of commuting miles before hitting the trails….

So we set up Trailcake in Glorious Gloucestershire, a county of outstanding natural beauty offering a variety of challenging mountain bike terrains just off the M5 and closer than a number of trail centres. Check out our gallery for a taste of where we go.

All the fun of the trail centres without the way markers, crowds and limited trail options. Test yourself against the natural environment.

The Forest of Dean

Using a mixture of man-made and natural trails, the Forest runs  fast and tight singletrack for miles once you find your way off the beaten tracks.

The new Verderer’s Trail forms the launchpad – a great warm up for the lesser traveled trails beyond it.

The Cotswolds

Don’t  be fooled by the picture postcard views, they’re not mountains but there’s enough lift and drop to challenge the hardiest riders and test your fitness and skill.

We think the best riding starts from Cheltenham, Stroud, or Gloucester, and we’ve plenty of options to tailor the ride to your requirements. Check out our gallery for a taste of where we go.

Trailcake rides are devised to respect other trail users and the environment.  Live and let live.
