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.

CHANGES TO Sunday 11th January 2015- First Club Ride Of 2015




Hi All,
I've brought the date of the first Club Ride of 2015 forward to Sunday 11th Jan as I wanted to be there and couldn't do the 18th.  I hope it is ok with you all.
The "New Captain's" ride before Christmas and the Boxing Day one were both well attended, so let's keep the momentum going with lot's of us braving the cold but thankfully dry weather forecast for next Sunday.
Ok, I've been out today and I'm a bit concerned about just how wet and muddy it is.  In view of that, I'd like to relocate the ride down to Swinley.  The trails are generally drier and and hold up better after the prolonged spells of rain we've had this week.  It's also a lot of fun!  So let's meet at: The Look Out Discovery Centre, Nine Mile Ride, Bracknell, Berkshire, RG12 7QW at 09.30am.  
For those who've not been before, its £2 to park for four hours (which is enough for us).  The trails are all within any reasonable rider's capabilities, we take the Go Rider kids down there and some of them are only 4!
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.
See you on Sunday,  Ian
