Building upon the success of the Saturday Easy Trails off-road ride I am pleased to say that as part of our work to extend the range of off-road riding Dalton Flesch, a very experienced club mountain biker, is going to start to offer a monthly FCCC Mountain Bike ride for our more adventurous and ardent mountain bikers.
Initially he will offer one ride per month in the hope that other ride leaders will come forward to lead more or that his group grows in such a way as he wants to offer more club rides himself.
We have plenty of experienced MTB riders who want not-so-easy rides!
We haven’t formally named it yet.
They will be around 30 miles in length taking in areas like the Blue Trails in Swinley or technical sweeps across Ash Ranges and Tunnel Hill. The pace will be approximately [18-20kmh]
In the first few rides we need to assess the ability of our Club MTB riders to ensure everyone’s combined enjoyment and safety.
We will post the routes well in advance and each route will be risk assessed.
I am extremely grateful to Dalton for this kind offer and hope that with his enthusiasm to help FCCC we can find a few more to lead the rides meaning we eventually get to a weekly MTB ride.
There will be more information to follow so please watch this space.
Paul Hosemann and Dalton Flesch
