Not just one event but two on the same day! Not organised by MBSwindon but worthy of consideration none-the-less…

The Ridgeway 100

Part of Trail Break’s popular Southern 100 series, the Ridgeway Enduro takes you on a huge tour of the trails and hills across the Ridgeway and Marlborough Downs. Didn’t think of Swindon as a mountain biking destination? You’ll be offroad almost immediately you leave the event centre and out into the spectacular downland countryside within minutes, where a network of tempting and testing trails await you.

There are 100km and 60km routes to choose from, all fully marked and mapped out for you. Support and feed stations on the route will keep you going to the end, where hot food, drinks and snacks will be available to revive you. This is great riding, on your doorstep – don’t let it pass you by!

The Swindon Southern Trail Ride

Trail Break’s Southern Trail Ride series has been running for 12 years, and it’s here as part of the Great Swindon Bike Ride. Alongside the enduro rides, you can choose from the regular 25 mile (40km) Trail Ride, or the family friendly 13mile (21km) short ride that takes you up to Barbury Castle to enjoy the views, before you roll back to the finish!

All routes are fully marked and mapped out for you, to make them easy to follow, and hot food, drinks and snacks will be available at the finish.
