If you are looking for a place where to challenge your biking skills and enjoy the view at the same time, here are the 3 top biking destinations that would probably satisfy all your expectations. 

 

Whistler, British Columbia, Canada

Located in the coastal mountains of British Columbia, Whistler is well known as one of the premier mountain bike locations in the world. Doubling as a skier and snowboarder’s paradise, the Whistler Mountain Bike Park provides over 100 miles of trails ranging in difficulty from beginner to expert. If you'd rather bomb down the mountain, many of the trails are accessible via the same chair lifts that serve the slopes in winter. 

The Alps, France

As all European mountain bikers probably already know, the Alps are the most popular destination to go to for a challenging bike trip. Aside from the scenic vistas, The Alps are easily accessible for everyone. This mountains offer even options for those seeking longer trails with cross country loops crossing into Switzerland and back to France. If you prefer to downhill riding, it is possible to use the system of chairlifts at Morzine (the lifts are open mid-June until mid-September). 

Moab, Utah, United States

Moab is commonly considered to be the mountain biking capital of the United States. The red rock landscape provides one of the most unique locations on earth. Riders from all over the world make the pilgrimage to this outdoor mecca to ride trails like Porcupine Rim, Poison Spider, Slickrock, and the Whole Enchilada.
