Ready to Join?

Join us for a moderate off-road ride starting from Reading with a stop off at the pub before returning. Being a Level 2 off-road ride, we will be riding on wide tracks, bridleways, some easy single-tracks with some moderate inclines or descents, and occasionally features such as rocks roots and minor drop-offs. (This corresponds broadly to the 'Green' and 'Blue' trail category in trail UK centres and British Cycling MTB level 2)

For Levels, see Protected content

We will cycle for two to three hours, with about an hour at the pub and cover between 16 and 20 miles. This ride is suitable for people who have are happy riding off-road on a variety of terrain, are fairly fit through regular mountain biking, gym or other physical activity.

I will generally announce the pub destination closer to the ride date.
In winter the pub will be closer to Reading to make a shorter return, in the summer we will venture out to further country pubs.

The pace will be leisurely/moderate and will ride either as a pack or faster riders waiting at intersections, with frequent opportunities to stop as required.
