TOPIC: Peak District 26th/27th July

Peak District 26th/27th July 3 years 5 months ago #638

It's a horrible pissy day here in London so naturally my thoughts have turned to the Peak District...

I'm planning on going there in July on probably 26th/27th, who's in?

(I may need help with real life activities like organizing)

I'd like to go back there again - good memories and not too far to drive either.

I'd be up for going, family holidays etc not getting in the way and happy to help with the admin and route planning.
Never cease to be amazed!

Ben, obviously we'll need a few quiet planning meetings with your book of routes around the dark peak. Think I still have my pdf's of the routes we did on the last visit but this web site is an absolute mine of info dedicated to MTB in The Peaks.

I can't make this trip but I'll happily spend hours poring over maps at planning meetings.

So selfless TT, that kind of commitment to the group has to be admired.

Tools

The forest is full of hazards that can bring an end to your ride, so bring a mini pump, spare tube and multi-tool so we can all spend more time pedalling.

Essential

It's simple NO helmet, NO ride. Other than that you can wear whatever keeps you warm, dry and happy. But, be warned some days the forest can be extremely muddy.

Under 35?

No problem, we have regular riders who are 25 years young and some who are 50+. As long as you can keep up you are more than welcome to join us.

About

MBRO35 (Mountain Bike Riders Over 35) are a social group of riders, not a club. As you may have guessed we are mostly over 35 years of age although some that ride are younger so don't let that put you off.

The group ride on a Saturday morning at 11am in Epping Forest which is to the North East of London. A lot of us have lived around and cycled in the forest for a good number of years and we are lucky to have some regular riders who know their way around the miles of singletrack very well. We ride all year round and usually get a pretty good turn out in all but the foulest weather. We are a sociable group and the emphasis is on enjoyment rather than speed or the mileage travelled. Having said that, the rides can be fairly quick at times and whilst we welcome riders of all abilities you will need a good level of fitness in order to keep up as well as a mechanically sound mountain bike. We ride mostly on the forest singletrack, the narrowness of the trails and exposed tree roots make for some challenging technical riding.

In addition to the regular Saturday rides we also do forest night rides on a Wednesday evening at 7pm as well as occasional away days or weekends. If you prefer your wheels on firmer ground, there is also a strong road contingent within the group that often rides out into the Essex and Hertfordshire countryside on a Saturday or Sunday. The road rides usually leave earlier in the day and head out via High Beech for trips of anything up to 70 miles. Most local rides are followed by a debrief in The Station House pub in Chingford where thanks to a very amiable Landlady we have a place to wash the bikes and store them in safety while we have a few beers and discuss the events of the day. You can also read about some of our most recent rides in the Ride Reports section on the forum.
