Intoduction

Welcome Mountain Bikers

If you’re in need of finding some of the best off roading in the Dales, Lakes, Moors or Peaks you’ve come to the right place.

Rides are roughly once a month and are suitable for Mountain bikes with a cross country set up. The rides are set up for just one group, so we ride to the slowest riders speed. If you’re miles off the front, loop round to the last rider and have another go. All routes are on bridle path, BOAT’s, RUPP’s or GREEN LANES, definitely no footpaths.

Transport up to the meeting point is by your own arrangement , we can try and organise a lift but it can’t be guaranteed.

Please also read ‘What to bring’ to make the ride go smoothly. Rider input is also very welcome, be it, routes, website info, good pub after the ride etc! If you like the rides then join the club. We’re not a road club, we’re a cycling club and proudly so.

Any enquiries can be directed to:
