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).
Debbie will be leading a gentle novice friendly ride around the Cotswold Lakes.
This is non technical and will be at the pace of the slowest rider. It is designed to suit ladies new to mountain biking and those who want a steady ride.
There will be a cafe stop 3/4 of the way round, but feel free to bring any snacks and water.
Helmets compulsory and this is not suitable for hybrid bikes, due to the possibility of mud on the tracks.
Meet in the car park to the Cricklade Leisure Centre for a 10am start.
