Yep, there are a few of us on here so you should get a few more responses during this afternoon and evening. Hopefully this will be a starter though.
The club website should give you a good indication of the main activities, there are two evening rides per week (Tuesday and Thursday) and then two rides on a saturday afternoon (faster 1:30pm ride and slightly slower 2:00pm ride). There is also a leisure ride on most Sunday mornings for people getting in to it, or working back to fitness. Rides take in a lot of the local area, not just Swinley Forest.
The club is heavily involved with local Gorrick XC races, and also maintains most of the trails within Swinley Forest, so tries to put stuff back into the biking community.
There are probably 50-60 active members of the club but with quite a few less active members as well, riding everything from leisure rides through XC to downhill.
The formal route is to come along on an Intro ride which usually happen once a month, just to ensure you're able to ride, but worth contacting one of the BoB committee members directly to get details about the next one and to book yourself in.
Hope that helps, I'm sure there's plenty I've missed out, but others will be along to provide further updates.Posted 7 years ago #
