Rusty Rides

Rusty Rides

So, the New year has arrived and you’ve decided it’s time for a new you. There is an alternative to the gym that gets you outside and having fun.
Maybe you got a new mountain bike for Christmas, you fancy riding it somewhere nice but have no idea where to start.

Now is the season of resolutions. Whether you want to raise your pulse or a smile, we’ve got you covered.

Whatever your reason for deciding to get on a bike in January, Backpedalling’s rusty rides are for you. It’s all about having fun riding your bike so that you want to do it again.

We’ll be out for an hour or so at a relaxed pace, taking in a mixture of trails and quiet roads. The ups are fairly gentle but will get your pulse going. The downs will have you freewheeling and grinning.

Not only that but we’ll finish at a café so you can sit down, chat and refuel if you fancy. If there’s a more enjoyable way of getting a little exercise, I haven’t found it yet.

Ride leader

Your leader for the rides is Andy, a British Cycling level 2 qualified mountain bike leader with years of riding experience. He will look after you the whole way offering helpful tips on how to get more from your riding as well as making sure that the ride is exactly right for you.

All you need is a working mountain bike and a desire to ride.

Location

We’ll start and finish outside Costa Coffee on Stoney Lane. There is plenty of parking nearby.

Times

The rides are on Saturday mornings in January at 9am and 11am.

This week we’re setting off from Hunter Park in Twyford to take in two of my favourite local trails.

Mare Lane is a beautiful ribbon of twisting singletrack of perfect dirt that flatters everyone and will bring a massive smile to your face. White Lane drops from the top of the down to Hockley. This hollow way is a brilliant bit of trail with just the right amount of slope to make the descent a huge amount of fun.
