Welcome to BucksMTB

Welcome to BucksMTB Club the home of Buckinghamshire mountain biking based in the Chiltern Hills.

BucksMTB caters for everything mountain biking in the Chilterns, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and beyond.

BucksMTB was first established in 2002 and is an officially registered and insured Mountain Bike Club who is affiliated to Cycling UK (previously the CTC), BikeClub and the Cycle Chilterns project.

We couldn't have asked for a better day for this ride, held on the 5th June from Coombe Hill. Unfortuantely two riders dropped out at short notice but this didn't stop eight local riders attended including Club Staff ride leader Darren. The ride was a twenty four mile ride off road ride from Coombe Hill taking in trails in and around Great Missenden and Wendover before returning back to Coombe Hill. The weather was stunning but the trails were still muddy in places after recent rain. A great turn out again with a mix of brand new faces and returning visitors and club members alike. A big thank you to everyone who attended and to club ride leader Darren for organising another cracking event. Keep an eye on our website for our July open group ride details coming soon.

Our Watlington rides are normally very popular and this ride was no exception and went very well. This was definitely one of the best rides I've done so far for the Club; what a great bunch of people and the whole day was a great laugh. Five people attended altogether as two people dropped out the night before. One puncture and one mechanical all day, but nothing too drastic. We stopped off at Pishill Church for a coffee and luckily we managed to avoid the rain! Some very keen new members in attendance who I hope to see out on the trails again very soon - Darren.

 

We were completely spoilt with the weather for our May open group ride event starting at Ivinghoe Beacon. This event had gained a lot of interest and alot of local riders had pre-registered to attend, however on the day perhaps people were put off by the 27 degrees and burning sun as only four brave new faces turned up to follow our ride leader Darren around his preplanned Chiltern Hills route.

Darren's route started and finished at the main Ivinghoe Beacon car park and took in about a fifteen mile singletrack Chiltern Hills route in and around Ivinghoe and Ashridge areas. The new faces that attended seemed to enjoy the ride and certainly had a great day to enjoy it.

Thank you to everyone who attended and expressed an interest in the event, and a big thank you to ride leader Darren who planned and led another great ride.

Look out for future group ride event dates on our main website and social media feeds very soon.

Its tradition that any bank holiday weekend the weather is always grim, and even more traditional that we head out and embrace said weather for some holiday riding! Inevitably I ended up working Easter Sunday but our Club Treasurer Darren kindly stepped in to lead a loop around Swinley Forest near Bracknell. A keen team of new club members, most of which were attending their first club member only rides turned up, and all in five keen riders span around Swinley Forest enjoying some good conditions between the strong winds and heavy down pours...

Our last open group ride was held on Saturday 19th March starting at Coombe Hill Monument car park. Our open group rides are ideal for beginners and new riders to attend to get a feel for our rides, ride some new trails and meet some staff and club members. A small team of five turned up on the day but we sadly lost one rider early on due to a dodgy knee!

The weather hadn't been too kind on the lead up to this ride however the small brave team that attended were very impressed with the trail conditions in places, dry and almost dusty trails made for some fun riding (avoiding the odd gloopy patch of course).

Two sets of brake pads, two punctures and one slow speed crash in to a puddle later we made it back to Coombe having spun round a short twelve mile winter loop.

Unfortunately no photos this time around, it was too cold and wet to stop to find a camera!

Thank you to everyone who attended the ride, and please keep an eye on the website soon for future dates for our next open group rides! 

As the weather was looking sunny and mild (and we have already eaten far too many mince pies....) we felt it was only right to have an open group ride before Christmas. Our ride leader Seamus kindly planned and led the ride, starting and finishing from one of usual haunts, the Cafe in the Woods in Wendover Woods. The route was a new different route that used before, that took in a route over to Coombe Hill, running up and down the ridgeline twice in and around Coombe, Coblers Hill and Dunsmore before returning to Wendover for the inevitable cup of tea and piece of cake! 

Sunshine and a thick frost (and minus five degrees....) gave us a beautiful crisp winters morning for our November open cross-country group ride starting at Coombe Hill Monument. Nine of us 'braved' the chilly temperatures for this ride; a great mix of some brand new faces, some club members and a couple of staff ride leaders too. 

A cracking morning set a great scene for our mix of new non-member visitor riders, existing club members and staff to head out on the trails in and around Ivinghoe for a circa fifteen mile loop.

Our September Chiltern Hills Open Group Ride received a lot of interest which was a fantastic start! Various local people registered for our ride and then couldn't attend but we still had a twelve strong team who attended, a great mixture of non-member visitor riders, club members and club staff. The ride was aimed at all riders from beginners right through to experienced riders fancying an afternoon blast out on the trails. ..

The 'Ard Rock Enduro takes place in the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park. The route takes in natural rcoky descents including rock strewn terrain only rideable during the event itself. All the riding is incorporated into a big day out in the Dales and is topped off with live music, local grub, beer and a BBQ or two!

The 'Ard Rock Enduro is fast becoming one of the most popular and exciting weekends on the mountain bike calendar, it was only a matter of time before BucksMTB members wanted in on the action!
