Total MTB, Total Surprise, Total Warm Fuzzies

by 0

You might be in need of a dose of ‘ahh, that’s just nice’, and thanks to Singletrack Reader Awards finalist, Total MTB, we have a large spoonful for you here.

Total MTB has grown from a hashtag movement on social media to a Community Interest Company that aims to raise awareness of mental health issues through an inclusive approach to mountain biking and reconnection with the environment. You can hear more about them and some of their projects in our podcast.

A new project is ‘Total Surprise’, which aims to celebrate individuals in the mountain bike community with a surprise boost to their day.

It’s our chance to celebrate the wonderful people doing good in the world, the amazing folks fighting through tough times, or those young shredders pushing MTB from the ground up. It’s an opportunity for us to send a little gift to show love from the MTB community.

With the most secret methods our team can muster, we find out what the deserving person likes and, no matter how big or small it is, we aim to create an experience they’ll never forget. We hope this provides joy and happiness not only for the person receiving the surprise but also our community who see them receive it on social media. Spreading joy through cycling is what we’re all about.

The latest surprise sees ‘TrailRippers‘ Nathan and Ruben get support from Dyfi Bike Park, enabling them to go training there as often as they need to. Although it’s only on their doorstep, the cost of accessing the park was stopping them going as often as they’d like, and as they have their sights on National level competition, getting as much experience in as possible is key.

I came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. I like all bikes, but especially unusual ones. More than bikes, I like what bikes do. I think that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments. I try to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.
