- Calling all Oxford mountain bikers!
Hi, so recently moved back to Oxford after a few years in Brighton, and was wondering where all the Oxford mountain bikers are/where they go. Im looking for people to ride with essentially, I often go up to shotover in terms of local spots. Like to travel to Aston hill, Woburn etc if transport is available.
Anyone else in Oxford seeking some gravity orientated/jumpy riding?
(sounds like a dating ad)
EDIT; Have also heard that theres some riding up at Boars Hill, anyone got experience with this?Posted 4 years agojohnnySubscriber
Plenty of more XC riding in the Chilterns, but i’m more the Reading side. there are various midweek rides if you’re interested? Most riders I know are mainly into XC/trail riding, but have been known to dabble in DH.
Gravity/DH wise, it’s really Woburn/Aston Hill, etc, unless you dont mind travelling.Posted 4 years agodps11Member
Thanks a lot for the advice people, will check out these groups and see whats going on. I am also interested in doing some more xc orientated riding, need to work on my fitness I think. Seems like getting a car would be the best option as even Witney and Abingdon are a fair distance to ride.
@Johnny, so are there regular rides you go on where I could tag a long, If i could get there?Posted 4 years ago
@gaberin, those jumps look nice in the video (bit scary but i could probably build up to them!) do you know their current condition? Do you ride there?patomenesesMember
