We had a great ride around Falmouth last weekend, cracking weather for the first half before the heavy rain came in later. Lovely views and dirty woods. Coming up soon we have some classic club rides around Plymbridge, Tehidy and Minions, and the morning after the Club Christmas Do we are up to Carn Brea for some downhill carnage! Winter is on its way so keep an eye out for night rides and other interesting things. See you on the trails.
After an unprecedented damp ride, Our Eric produced almost Perfect riding conditions again for his West Kernow spectacular! Such a Beautiful place to be and ride, Huge thanks again for the effort to produce such, Always a great ride!
last week saw us ride Up and Down Carn brea a total of 6 times to take in as many of the runs as we could, some great technical lines up there, some a smidge over grown, but great fun, This week we are off to the track after weather interupted us last week, Plenty of great riding on the way, Be great to see you all out there!!!
what a cracking few weeks of riding we have had! Super Dry dusty trails, beautifully defined ribbons of singletrack stretching through the countryside, and then the mizzle came! :-D we all knew it would end soon enough!! So now our trails look like Fern lined hedges than clear defined singletrack, but the fun aspect is still there, This coming weekend will be case in point, Carn Brea sesh, lots of runs from the top of the Cornish mountain, many grin enducing moments to be had!! Be great to see you all out there!!
A note needs tobe made for our intrepid riders that took part in the Bonty24/12 this past weekend, a Monumental effort from those in the 24hr solo, Huge round of applause for them!!
Huge apollogies for leaving our Notice board somewhat unatended of late, Webmonkey has been Repremanded and Disciplined and has promised not to let it happen again! As Punishment he was made to ride Tehidy in the Rain!
So, Summer is here, and here with a bang! the trails are slippery but the rain is warm! Don't be put off by the wet trails, get out and enjoy them, use them to learn some more about your bike, test your tyres out as you'll know if you can do it in the rain, you'll do it in the dry! And remember, Any time on the bike beats time on the sofa! Hopefully see you out on the trails soon!

We are a friendly bunch of mountain 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. The aim of the club is to get muddy, get fit and have a good laugh!
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 usually on a Sunday and sometimes on a Saturday at the time and location displayed on the Club Ride List page.
Each ride has been given a difficulty grade which tries to be representative of the more difficult sections of the rides. Many rides are suitable for all abilities but bear in mind that each ride is likely to have some variety, and difficulty is subjective. For example, expect:
- Grade 1 smooth and flatish
- Grade 2 general bridleways
- Grade 3 trail riding, with occasional steep, rocky or rooty sections
- Grade 4 more technical trail riding with plenty of steep, rocky or rooty sections
- Grade 5 relentless steep downhills or general exposed technical riding
Do take note of the grades to ensure the ride suits your confidence and ability!
If you have any questions for the club members then please use the email link at the bottom of the page and ask away, one of the Club Crew will try and get back to you as soon as possible. There is also a link to our club Facebook group on the Links page where you are sure to find plenty of up to date ride information and friendly banter!
We are pleased about the good name we have built up for our club so come along and be part of it. Hope to see you out with us soon!
