We are a friendly bunch of bikers. We are proud of our easy going, relaxed atmosphere and always do our best to make everyone feel welcome. We have members of all levels, young and old, no one is left out. We are pleased about the good name we have built up for our club so come along and be part of our up and coming mountain bike club.
We are located around the Central/Truro area in Cornwall. We ride at various locations each week around the County, the rides are set by a different group member each week, this keeps the riding style varied and interesting.
We meet on either a Saturday or Sunday at the time and location displayed on the 'Rides' page,.
Each ride is given a 'grade' to let members know roughly what to expect each week, but don't let this put you off, the rides are generally suitable for all abilities and no one is forced to ride anything they don't want too!
(Grades are 1-5, 1 being easy upto 5 being Very technical)
The aim of the club is to get fit, get muddy and have a good laugh!!!
So nip down your local store and get yourself kitted out now!
