Not too shabby

Much has been said of late about the new sections of trail at the QECP so we thought we’d pay it a visit. So 6 of us made the 80 mile journey to QECP yesterday frankly not expecting too much. We’d heard of the...

Give it a chance..

Now before we get stuck in, the trails are in a city, so there is a distinct lack of elevation and serious gravity fed fun. Its not a hot destination for mountain bikers wishing to “shred the gnar” or if you are in search of real technical...

Best thing to happen to UK Mountain Biking for years

I've been to Windhill a bunch of times this year and on every visit set myself a goal - clear that table, nail that step up, don't look at the boner log! And each time I get it. The tails build confidence and are...

Afan a laugh at Afan

Afan is a favourite of many and is easily accessible across the South West and Wales. With 2 main loops with extension and joining options, the debate is always "which way round are you doing it?" "Did you do Skyline?" etc Plenty of elevation and variety. Whites...

Come to Cwmcarn

A MTB Trail, in Swindon!?

Living only around 30 mins drive away, I don't ride here often enough. Its a feature packed location with lots of obstacles to challenge the beginner to intermediate rider and a great spot to brush up on some core skills. Want to ride a rock spine? Ever...

It's mountain biking Jim, but not as we know it !
