Mountain biking

We have a thriving off-road section within the club, and run social rides around the many trails and fire roads around our local area. . These rides are generally suited for CX bikes and gravel bikes as well as MTBs (though this can depend on gearing and what sort of tyres you have on the CX/Gravel bikes). Let us know in advance if you’re coming along, and we can advise and adjust the course accordingly.

These rides are open to members and non-members, and typically last between 2 and 4 hours with an optional cafe stop. Keep an eye on the website and Facebook for the next ride, and the starting point. These rides are typically scheduled on an ad-hoc basis.

Some of our members race their MTBs too. See the MTB Race Reports section for details of what they get up to.

A couple of our members took their MTBs to the Alps for an epic adventure – read all about that here.

If you would like to get involved with off-road rides with other club members, then please get in touch with our off-road secretary.
