Hi Everyone.

Another Newby to the MTB world and very excited.... :D

Grew up locally, Extremely fortunate to live next to the Chase (in fact our garden gate opens out into the forest).

I'm looking for riding buddies or riding group over Cannock Chase routes/ trails. Collecting MTB tomorrow morning, so hopefully be ready to get stuck this weekend. Not yet super fit but that's what I plan to be whilst enjoying myself at the same time.

Look forward to hearing from guy's & gals :)

    Hi Shire 51 welcome to the forum, cannock is my local stamping ground although I have a thirty minute drive to get there. Currently not going as often as waiting for trail diversions to finish. I tend to ride in the week between school hours when not at work as I work continental shifts. If you fancy a blast some time give me a buzz, several others on here have been looking for riding buddies on the chase.

    Another Chase local here!
    There's usually a group of us who ride on a Tuesday evening (if you're on Facebook look for Chase Riders).
    Couple of guys out injured at the moment but hoping to start back up in the next few weeks.
    I usually try and ride one evening in the week and early on a Sunday morning.
  • Id be interested in tagging along if you wouldn't mind sometime, just started back up riding really but Cannock is also only around 30 mins from

    Hi Guys,

    I know this thread is a bit old but I'm up for meeting up for a ride one evening or weekend?

    Any takers? :)

    Struggle for evening and weekend's rides but weekdays when not in shift are easier for me. Looking at riding tomorrow hopefully around 10am from birches valley, dog and monkey if anyone's interested. Expect to get wet and muddy.
