Europe is probably one of the continents in the world where cycling is mostly preferred, maybe because of the eco awareness or because of the health awareness or just for fun. Netherlands is one of the countries where cycling is more common than autos, going on foot etc. But the subject of this article is a little more extreme, it is about the best regions for mountain biking in Europe and they are many, so if you are short on adrenaline and ready to go roaming the hills and fields of Europe, you should consider some of these locations.
The terrain of Iceland is just perfect for mountain biking, going through lava fields, desserts, and naked mountains, beautiful sights of raw and pure nature of waterfalls and rivers and hot springs, where you can go and have some relaxing time after you have finished your ride. Another cool location for biking is down south in the United Kingdom in the Calderdale in the region of Yorkshire, there are plenty of routes here, some of which are ones of the longest in Europe, and you can stay in the cottages of the national park Yorkshire dales.
