Bike‘n’Beer Off-Road Rides

Off road rides (typically known as ‘Bike ‘n’ Beer rides – to indicate that they are intended to be off-road social rides), which are suitable for cyclocross bikes as well as mountain bikes of around 2 ½ hours happen regularly all year round. Typically on Friday evenings in the summer – when they don’t clash with local FNSS mountain bike races – and on Saturdays in the winter. When the bridleways are muddy we stay on the gravel and less-travelled tarmac.

The meeting points will are variable to enable us to explore more of the local bridleways, field roads, towpaths, disused railway lines and other trails. These are often followed by a vitamin B recovery drink in a local hostelry (although beer is not compulsory).

Lights will be needed if it gets dark early or we ride through the tunnels on the Brampton Valley Way. Some form of puncture protection is recommended for our off-road riding such as self-sealing inner tubes or tubeless tyres + sealant.
