The First Ride (Rescheduled)

The First Ride (Rescheduled)

We’ll be kicking off our 10th Anniversary celebrations by recreating the Club’s first ever ride. After a week’s postponement, this event now takes place on Saturday 22nd February.

Meet at Barbury Castle ready for a 10.00am start, and join us on a 12-mile ride that features a number of climbs and descents that have become a regular part of Club life over the last 10 years.

The ride is novice-friendly: the pace will be relaxed and no-one will be left behind (and it’s fine to get off and push on the first climb!). There may even be cake at the end!

Hope to see you there as we start a year of celebrating ‘Getting on with it’ Since 2010.

    Hi Roula,

    Yes, if you’re not a member of MB Swindon, you can ‘try before you buy’ and come on one or two rides before deciding whether you’d like to join the club proper, the membership is only £10 per year.

    The ride leader will have put a description of the ride up – which details how long it is, the expected terrain, and whether it is suitable for novice riders or more experienced ones. Hope this helps.

    Hi, I am moving to Chiseldon from Wales on 3rd Feb, so new to the area.

    Wanted to ask about the first ride on the 15th Feb.I am a below knee amputee & have just recently bought a EBike Mountain Bike & wanted to ask if you accept ebike MTB riders in your club & whether I’d be able to take part in this ride. Many thanks, Ken.
