The Smoke Ring is a 200 mile (320km) MTB/gravel route that orbits London (aka the Big Smoke) in an anti-clockwise direction. This long-distance off-road route was created and published by MTB Epics UK back in 2014. For 2024, we are hosting a self-supported bikepacking adventure.

Riding through Essex, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Surrey and Kent, the many highlights will include some of the best off-road trails in the south-east of England.
