As far as I know Bike Park Wales was a first for Bucks MTB and judging by everyone's reactions from this trip it wont be the last!
After managing to get hold of a copy of a BucksMTB classic route ‘The Golden Ball Run’ we decided to host this ride with a little twist.
The BucksMTB Welsh Weekender Ride Report
It was on a club ride that someone mentioned the idea of a trip to Snowdon (im not taking the blame for that one!) and so the seed was planted…..a trip to Snowdon it would be! As we would be travelling to Snowdonia I wanted to make sure we did as many different venues as possible and the planning began.
We had a few requests to re-run our epic ‘Best of The Best’ route at Surrey Hills, so due to popular demand we were back!
The Shropshire Hills features the infamous Long Mynd ("Long Mountain"). A quick Google for ideas would suggest reviews such as a sprawling reserve known for its picturesque, verdant landscape, charming villages & waterways.....but there is no mention of the epic six mile ascent to reach the top of the moorland plateau! An eleven strong Club Trip packed up their climbing legs and took to the 'Shire to endure the endless climbing, stunning views, fast singletrack, oh and some great cake...
Our bank holiday trip had us heading to West Wycombe for a very demanding, but rewarding ride.
Six of us met at our usual car park waiting to begin what would be a great ride and a great introduction to the club for a few new faces.
The Great Surrey Hills was the destination for our latest ride.
Finally the trails are drying out! After mud plugging since Christmas we finally have fast flowing trails meaning you and your bike don’t need to be jet washed after the ride!!
Five of us met up, taking advantage of the lighter mornings, for an 8.30am start to hit the trails before the rest of the world...
