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).
The second weekend MTB Wellness ride is a gentle introduction to the Ridgeway.
Starting at the Three Trees Cafe, we will head along a flat section of the Ridgeway to the Barbury shooting club. From there we have a fun (gentle) descent to Draycott, a short stretch of road and a byway through to the old railway line, which will take us back to the Three Trees for refreshments.
12km and less than 100m of elevation, this is a perfect “get out in the countryside” ride for all abilities.
You just need a helmet, a bike and yourself. 🙂
Meet in the Three Trees cafe car park for 10.30am start
