Rides

We offer a wide variety of rides throughout the year with the length and pace adjusted to take account of the seasonal changes to the trails. Our regular monthly Open Rides take place on the dates below, with details of location and leader posted separately on the website home page as we go through the year. Monthly Open Rides give members a fixed calendar of rides for 2015 in addition to the rides posted in the Local and Away Rides sections of the Forum and on our Facebook page. They are the only rides open to prospective members to come and try out the club before joining. All dates are Sundays unless otherwise stated:

26th April

17th May

28th June led by Gary Collet

16th August

20th September led by David Wale

18th October

15th November led by Simon North

Saturday, 19th December led by the new captain

Members Rides: individual members post their favourite rides on Facebook and the Forum for Summit members to join and ride. The majority are based in the Chilterns and are held on either Saturday or Sunday morning, typically between 2 and 3 hours depending on the season and are normally at a moderate pace, with plenty of regrouping. Additionally, there are usually one or two night rides each week from fixed locations in Seer Green and Downley. Members also organise away rides at locations such as Swinley Forest, the North Downs and occasionally south or north Wales trail centres plusclassic ride locations such as the Quantocks.

Social Rides: new this year are monthly social rides on Saturday mornings to coincide with our Go Ride children's sessions. We meet at 10.00 at Lotts Wood, near Hyde Heath and ride at a steady pace into Amersham for a coffee, before riding back to the start for 12.00 midday.

Sunday 28th October Henley


You are very welcome to join us and try out Summit MTB club on any rides announced here. Just drop us an email if you want to come. Our next ride is on Sunday 28th October from Henley and the start time is 9.30am. Meeting place will be outside the Town Hall, at the top of Market Place (RG9 2AQ) in Henley town centre - parking in Waitrose car park (free on Sunday - entrance off Kings Road) then go through the alleyway next to Loch Fyne.

From there we will do 2 loops (ie. figure of 8-ish) - one out to Peppard and back, then a bit of road to the Assendons, followed by a loop out to Catslip (near Nettlebed) and back via Bix. That should be around 2-2.5 hours depending on speed. There is also an extension for those who want to, which heads up to Fawley, down to Hambledon lock and back along the river - about another half hour or so.

The route is a mixture of single track and wider tracks with a couple of good downhill sections (and climbs of course). The 2 loops are about 20 miles together with around 600m of climbing. Nothing too challenging but hopefully good fun and relatively weather-proof.

If you would like to ride with us on Sunday then please drop us an email to let us know, with a contact mobile number for the day.
