After discovering Brighton Mtb Club via a review of a bike I decide to attend a night ride. The night was dry and mild, I met up with the club at Sussex Uni, where I met a really nice group of guys and bikes. After some discussion of how they were expecting me to be faster than them we set of on the ride.
The pace was mild and relaxing to begin with, after a while we took off down some almost hidden technical singletrack. It was a really good change from my usual riding, help and directions were always available through the more technical parts, that are maintained by the members. The ride always seemed to be heading downhill which was nice. After a few loops of singletrack and no major mechanicals we headed back down through Sussex Uni, not too muddy and looking forward to the next ride on Thursday.
