edited August 2010 in MTB rides
I've just returned to Bromsgrove after a decade living up North.

I'm looking to join up with riders for mid-week evening rides Tue, Wed or Thu. Thinking that the Lickeys, Clent or even Malvern would be ideal locations.

    Have a look on the Wyre thread on this forum - there's a ride Wednesday evening and quite a few come from your area. Would be a good opportunity for you to meet riders of varying abilities, some fast, some pootlers and some chatter boxes :)

    some pootlers and some chatter boxes

    Hope your not talking about me!!..There a real good crowd...they also ride evening rides up Clent as well!

    Look on the Facebook site as well "Wyre forest MTB Trails" most of the rides are posted in the events bit
    Biking censored of Wyre....rides with anyone!

    Not always Mounty! Depends who's out. I'm all for a bit of banter but also like to keep the pace going - no point making the trip out otherwise.
    I live in Brum and keen to ride in the week. Considering I grew up about 5 miles from the Lickeys I have never cycled there - is there much and is it worth it? Fancy guiding one evening?

    I know miss groover, only teasing! :D

    A few of the other riders that I ride with.......their time is precious (married, children, work etc) out on the bike and a few of them just want to keep on riding and make the most out of the time that they have...

    The chat & banter is fun, but not so much on all the stopping and starting....
    :wink:

    Totally agree there - it's good that everyone gets on and can have a laugh but we all go to ride at the end of the day...and sometimes there's more banter than riding! :lol:

    Turkinator,

    You're in luck, also 'Grove based. Ride mainly with a group of lads called the 'Clent duffers' but have done a few rides with the Wyre group off this forum.

    I ride over Clent, Lickeys and mainly the Wyre. Do shifts so tend to be free for 4 days then working the other 4.. However, this week just doing nights tonight and Tuesday so free for Wed day time/ nights..
    But doing Mayham this weekend, so up there Thursday setting up, then upthere from Friday afternoon till Sunday.

    OK I'm tempted by a ride in the Wyre forest on Wednesday as I've never ridden there. Where do you meet and at what time?
  • Mick ArmsMick Arms Posts: 141
    Depends, the clent duffers normally meet for 7PM, (Same time as the Duke William fast boys.), Sometimes we tag along with them before splitting off, the Wyre group meet for 7.30.

    Both groups meet at the duke william pub.

  • Hello,

    Im local to Worcester although originally from the Lakes. Looking to get back into the saddle but really could do with hooking up with some riders who know the local trails. Would love to tag along on any weekend rides around Wyre/Malverns/Clent. Bit out of shape so would probably be hanging of the back to start off with.

    Would really like to meet up with folks who know a few decent rides.

    Thanks in anticipation,

    Dan
