As you may have noticed we have now added gradings to all our club events. The Idea is to provide members information on the type of ride based on fitness and technical difficulty.
It’s back by popular demand, the SMTBE 2018 Lake District All-Mountain Adventure
We now have XC style lycra club jerseys available, as well as our regular ‘Enduro’ style ones.
We loved the Swinduro last September, so we’re super excited to see it back early with a ladies only race on 18th March!
The change of year is nearly here & time to reflect on what you’ve achieved this year, but more importantly, what you want do next year. Do your first race perhaps, or tackle that drop you’ve always feared? Set some goals and maybe we can help to you achieve them in 2018 ✨
We are holding our AGM on Wednesday 10th January at 7pm at The Plough in Wanborough. Continue reading SMTBE AGM
The lovely people at Mitchell Cycles have come up with a cracker of an offer for SMTBE Members this Christmas – 50% off selected knee and elbow pads.
Some might say sticking a run either end of mountain bike ride is a good way to ruin a perfectly good ride- others (probably mad ones) say it actually adds to the fun. So the scene was set for for the Cirencester off road duathlon. A duathlon replacing the triathlon’s cold wet swim with one extra cold wet run!
We’ve got lots of events going on this weekend, covering all sorts:
- Friday 27th October, 9.30am – Breeze Ladies & under 16’s ride round Lydiard Park – half term special!
- Saturday 28th October, 10am – FoD Training day – club coach Gaz is on hand to give pointers on how to improve your riding
- Sunday 29th October, 10am – Swinley Monster Mash up – halloween ride round Swinley Forest, taking in everything: Blue, Red, Singletrack, DH and Enduro stages!

A bright and early Saturday morning saw the ladies of Swindon MTB Enthusiasts (plus our heroic photographer Adrian) heading to the fresh pastures of the Fly up 417 bike park. The event run by the Ladies do DH group headed by the ever enthusiastic Amanda was due to be the biggest that they had organised to date (nearly 50 women) and the first hosted by the 417 and its wonderful coaches.
