SMTBE run a program called “Get into MTB”, designed to get people mountain biking. You might not have ridden since you were a child, or ride the road regularly and be curious about mountain biking, or be coming back to mountain biking after a break. If so, we have articles and events designed to help you find out about mountain biking and actually get you on a mountain bike. These are also perfect for building up skills and fitness if you’ve not been on a mountain bike for some time.
Below is the calendar for “Get into MTB” events. All of these will be less than 15 miles (generally 10 miles).
NOTE – we’ve now changed the date to 1 day earlier, Saturday 16th March, to avoid a race.
We’ve not been to FoD for ages, so we’re going to do another “FoD 4 All” event.
Basing ourselves at Pedalabikeaway, we will have several ride leaders, offering different rides for all abilities – a great introduction if you’ve not been before.
A lap of the legendary Verderers is bound to be on the agenda and we will take everyone through steadily, as a great opportunity if you’ve not done it before.
There will also be downhill trails and some of the techy super steep off piste tracks in the Cannop Valley too, should anyone want to try that.
We will also have at least one coach on offer if anyone wants to session some features, such as roots, jumps or drops, or certain sections of trail (the top of Corkscrew has a great sequence of features in one short run for learning).
Meet at outside the Pedalabikeaway café at 10.30am
