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!
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.
A frosty and snow covered Wendover Woods was the venue for our December Family, Youth and Novice Mountain Biker XC Group Ride.
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.
Our group ride this month had a bit of a twist – we teamed up with Beeline Bicycles of Oxford who were kind enough to bring a fleet of Whyte bikes for people to try out (on a pre-order basis) as well as a range of energy gels for people to try out.
