Hi everyone, I'm Gaz from the facebook based mountain bike group, HOMBRES (Hung-Over Mountain Bikers Recreational Entertainment Society). We are a ride for fun group of a very mixed ability range, who like to embrace the social element of Mountain Biking. Anyone is welcome to join us on rides (entirely at your own risk- legal disclaimer) no matter what your skill or fitness level. We try to arrange a big group ride every 3 or 4 weeks.

Our next ride will be at 11-11.30am start at Coed Llandegla Trail Centre near Wrexham on Sunday 16th May, look out for the guys in HOMBRES T shirts by the bike shop. Full details can be found on our facebook page http://groups.to/hombresmtb

We look forward to meeting new members

    That's cool, probably see you there :wink: . As long as you don't do what several groups were doing at 'Degla last Sunday, and gather together at 'check points' at road crossings, blocking the way for anyone coming through by themselves...
    Or stopping at other inconvenient spots, like at the apex of berms... :roll: Common sense seems to abandon some people as soon as they sling a leg over a pushbike... :evil:

    No we do congregate at points to let the lower ability members catch up, but we do make sure that we keep way off the lines, consideration costs nothing.

    The more the merrier though on this one, well and on any of our rides, we are very much of a mixed ability some guys are pretty experienced bikers, some are very new to it, any we do allow for them, everyone has to start somewhere. we make no bones about the fact our HOMBRES rides are very social, of a decent pace, but more geared to enjoying ourselves, considerately

    I miss riding at Llandegla, though I'm a non-driver so getting there is a b*stard.

    If anyone is planning on joining us for this one, we will be at Llandegla ready to ride at around 11am, look out for the stripy black and white car with the hombres signs on the doors, or the guys in the Hombres T shirts by the shop

    Bloody typical, tweaked my back at work on Friday and just worse over the weekend so didn't come to Llandegla in the end.

    How did the thrash around Llandegla go?

    It went well cheers Ben, we got there a little late due to one guy doing 56 down the motorway all the way to save fuel. I see you've joined the group anyway so look out for our rides in the future, they are every 3 or 4 weeks so you are always welcome
