Welcome to the Mountain Biking section!

We are a very enthusiastic group of mountain bikers of all ages and all abilities. Everyone welcome, we do activities to suit all abilities.We have a varied and full programme of rides all year round. This includes all-day Sunday rides, evening rides on Wednesdays, some Saturday rides, weekends in the Lakes and longer Bank Holiday weekends in Wales, Scotland.

See some videos of what we get up to here!

We mainly ride XC (cross country) on  local trails in the Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors and North Pennines and also further afield in the Lake District, Peak District, Scotland, Wales etc.

We also venture to trial centres both locally at Hamsterley and Dalby and also Whinlatter and Grizedale in the Lakes. Bank holidays often see us trying out the trails in Wales (Coed y Brenin, Afan Argoed, Llandegla etc) and Scotland (7 Stanes, Laggan Wolftrax and sometimes even further north) usually combined with a few days riding natural trails in these areas as well.

We do tough days out carrying and dragging our bikes over high passes to get to the fantastic singletrack on the other side, we do laid-back sunny days out with plenty of stops for ice-cream and paddling and we have family rides suitable for children (and adults of course). We do evening rides all year round and these can be very pleasant in June when we end up sitting outside drinking beer or quite unpleasant on a wet and cold night in January when you wonder what possessed you to come along!(other than for the beer)
