Youth (U16) - Monthly Ashridge MTB Ride (1st Sat)
Ashridge Youth Trail Ride - 1st Saturday every month
On the first Saturday of every month we run an off-road MTB ride for the youth members. This is normally held in Ashridge and is lead by qualified British Cycling Coaches.
The ride is graded into ability groups and follows the local tracks and bridleways.
It is aimed principally at 8-14 year olds who have completed go-ride skills courses or are already competent MTB riders. Anyone interested in coming along or helping out occasionally then get in touch with Rob or Roger.
Non-members are welcome to come and try a ride before joining the club. We do ask that you join the club after your first 'taster' ride to ensure everyone is insured. Please see further details on the join the club page.
What bike do I need?
Any well maintained mountain bike, hybrid or cyclo-cross bike should be fine. The routes used are on woodland trails and bridleways so off-road tyres are needed.
Please make sure you bring a drink and snack, a bike in good working order, helmet and gloves.
