Club Member SteveA kindly took to the trails again and led three other Club Members around a sticky winter-esque Chiltern Hills route starting and finishing in Watlington. More Club Members rides being added to the calendar all the time, please keep an eye out for our next upcoming rides!
A BucksMTB Club ride first, with a cheeky January trip out to the Surrey Hills. The ride was kindly organised and led by Club member, Steve Attwood. A top singletrack route around the Surrey Hills enjoyed by all.
The first of our two club member only rides on Sunday 12th November was a "Sunday Swinley" ride at Swinley Forest near Bracknell. Just two of us turned up for this super short notice organised ride (it was only confirmed late the day before). An early start was cold, but the sun was out. The trails were running fast but there were some large areas of standing water and some nice sloppy sections and lethal roots thrown in too. The carrot cake went down a treat mind.
The last of our three rides on Sunday 12th November was our Club Members ride at Watlington. After a few last minute cancellations four riders braved the chill and mud but enjoyed a fantastic Chiltern Hills loop in the sunshine. A club ride isn't complete without a cafe visit which was of course completed! A big thank you to club member SteveA for organising and leading the ride.
Our last Club Members ride took place this weekend just gone (28th October). Five club members took to the trails on a Chiltern Hills 'Chequers Loop'. Trail conditions were pretty good considering the time of year. The photo taken at our 'secret club office'. Thank you to club member Steve Attwood for planning and leading the ride. More club members rides to be published in the diary very soon.
