Five of us met up at Felday Glade in glorious winter sunshine, and after a spell of dry weather, the trails were primed to run fast and grippy.
5 of us met up by the Bike Hub for a thrash around the purpose built trails in Swinley Forest. Following a long spell of wet weather over the previous couple of weeks, the trails were damp with standing water in places. The choice of tyres and the pessures ran impacting on how the bikes performed in these conditions.
Conditions were perfect for our latest ride. So six keen members arrived at the top of Castle Hill for the epic Sting Bee Loop.
This was the first time some members had seen each other for a while so a bit of time was spent catching up!
This ride has been a long time coming.... our first socially distanced Club members ride post-lockdown...
Despite the last few weeks of storms, conditions out there are pretty good. It may be boggy in places but a bit of mud doesn’t stop a mountain biker, it just adds to the fun!
Our first Open Group Ride of 2020 was off to a flyer with a great turn out, some areas of hard-packed frosty trails and some glorious sunshine! We had a few unfortunate no shows due to illness and the cold temperatures, but none the less we had a fantastic group of eight that took to the trails for a 15 mile singletrack and fireroad route in and around Coombe Hill. The temperature at one point hit a tropical four degrees, but what with some boggy patches of mud and some tough climbs everyone kept warm and took solace in the breaks in the clear skies and sunshine. Thank you to Scott and Mark for leading the ride, and a big thank you to everyone who came out and made the ride a huge success. Please keep an eye on our events calendar and social media for more group ride dates coming soon.
Bucks MTB club trip to Spain 2019 - Sierra MTB
21st – 25th September 2019
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.
