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.

After the success of our Club Trip to Snowdon last year we had been swamped with interest from lots of riders in the Club asking about holding again, so it was decided that we had to hold the trip again, but this time open it up for a longer weekend of riding.

Our open group ride for March 2012 was scheduled to start in Watlington and recycle a route we used last April. It’s a route that I often ride after work in the summer as the views are lovely and it’s normally pretty quiet. There’s loads of scope to add little loops on and take shortcuts if needed and whilst the descents aren’t technically that challenging they are a lot of fun! The route is around 22 miles with 3 notable climbs with a total ascent of 2200ft; the descents also total 2200ft as it’s a circular route.

On a cold, breezy and slightly dull February morning nineteen of us local Mountain Bikers awoke to attend our Chiltern Hills February XC Group Ride.

 

^ We lost a few riders along the way who had time constraints - pictured are the finishing crowd before tea and cake at the end!

Our first members only ride of the year started on a cold but brilliantly sunny morning up at Cannock Chase nr Birmingham. We had a good turnout with a large proportion of the club making the journey  North to stretch their legs and start the new year with a ride!

Sunday 23rd January was the Bucks MTB Monthly Club ride to the Forest of Dean or FoD if you’re feeling lazy (I’ll be calling it  FoD from now on). After a bit of a battle for some to find parking spaces due to FoD being extra busy with the 661 Down Hill race (more on that later), we all met at the obligatory cafe to meet up and say Hi, warm ourselves up with Tea and Bacon sarnies. The turnout was good with the usual regulars, some new faces, and I am really happy to say a good number of female riders (almost half the group!) with riders varying from beginners to seasoned XC riders.

As tradition dictates we have to go out riding on New Years Day. Not wanting to break our ten year long tradition we organised one of our monthly XC Group Rides for New Years Day 2012.

It is laid down in a distance memory or in law and order somewhere that it is traditional for BucksMTB to go riding on Boxing Day. It used to be just the staff riding Boxing Day morning back many moons ago but with the expansion of our regular rides and club we decided to hold a full XC Group Ride Event on Boxing Day morning to continue the tradition and open up the ride for everyone else too.

A frosty and snow covered Wendover Woods was the venue for our December Family, Youth and Novice Mountain Biker XC Group Ride.

A total of four riders joined BucksMTB staff members Chris and I for the first of BucksMTB's winter night rides. Armed with what seemed to be every light they could find (or borrow) and in some cases attached in true 'Blue Peter' style using Zip ties and tape we headed out into the trails around Coombe hill.
