Mountain bike in Manchester!

If you don't have a bike we have a very limited number of spare bikes that we can lend. Message me if you would like to borrow one or if you have a suitable one you could lend. 

We shall be riding the purpose built trail in Clayton Vale, next to the Sportcity velodrome.  This event is suitable for anyone who can ride their bike on a bumpy surface, so an excellent introduction into mountain biking.  Hybrid bikes and mountain bikes are both suitable, but unfortunately not road bikes.  We shall begin with a session in the skills zone where I will be happy to offer advice on riding roll-offs, steep descents, berms (banked corners) and 'pumping'.  We shall then enter the wooded valley where we will tackle the light blue, and dark blue bike trails which are about 4 and 5 km respectively.

Done a fair bit of mountain biking before? See the "experienced" event.
