Are there any mountain bike clubs. Or any riders who'd like to meet up for a training ride.

If we got together and took turns to lead the way round are local areas we'd soon have more areas to pick from. I could lead you round a 20 mile loop 50/50 of B roads with 4 great off road sections.
I'm not a racer, but I like to churn out 2-3hr rides,
I love Cannock and Llandegla cycle parks.

  • I think there is a group based out of the long mynd. http://www.mtb-shropshire.co.uk/about/

    I'm just waiting for my mates wedding this weekend, before I get back into regular riding, so would be up for a few outings. I've only really done Llandegla, so a little short on local knowledge.

    Where are you based?

    Blazing bikes, the above do a Wed evening ride at 6.30 I think.

    I ride around the Long Mynd and I also have some other routes around Shrewsbury, varying distances etc.

    Where are you from?

    I've ridden around Llandegela once and found the long long up-hills a bit of put off. but the twisty route through the trees and the high board walk thingy was ace I did it four times while my brother whimped out and walked under it.
    Also I've done Cannock three times and loved it. but I can't justify the fuel money when I can do the same sort of route on me door step (well almost :wink: ).

  • From mine you can do the lanes around hindford or the canal path up to chirk. Ok for a training ride but not the most exciting.

    Mate of mine in Shrewsbury is just getting into mountain biking so we'll be up for a few outings mid-late sept.

    Hi over the weekend I found out that there are some tracks around Eastridge Woods the other side of Shrewsbury, near Minsterley.

    I took part in a race and came 11 out of 15, not bad for my first race.

    There's a regular group ride on Wednesday evenings, often over Long Mynd or the Stiperstones:
    http://www.wwwa2b.co.uk/
    or pop in and speak to Dave at Dave Mellor Cycles in Shrewsbury (though not this weekend as he will be organising the cyclo-cross races at Sundorne).

    Plush Hill Cycles in Church Stretton would be worth asking - they have copies of a very useful map of Long Mynd trails - along with Blazing Bikes in nearby Marshbrook:
    http://www.plushhillcycles.co.uk/
    http://www.blazingbikes.co.uk/ (the same people as mtb-shropshire.co.uk)
    Aspire not to have more, but to be more.

    I am in Market Drayton, but work in Chester.

    Up for a ride, but will be mid October as work & MBA studies have mucked up riding for the next month :(

    PM if you are orgainising a ride. There is another lad on here from Telford (Ben Naylor) and a chap from Macc who are always willing to go for a decent ride.
