Ride Information

Riding with Brighton mtb

You MUST wear a helmet.

All rides are open to everyone at no cost but as you ride at your own risk you need to be 18 or bring your Dad. You are responsible for your own safety at all times and will not be asked or encouraged to ride anything beyond your skill level.

Less experienced riders should start with an Introductory Ride or Skill Session before joining a Singletrack Ride.

You will not be left behind on your own however your bike should be properly maintained before coming on a ride. You will need good quality off road lights for night riding.

Bike suitability  – mountain bike so no hybrids –  off-road tyres and properly set up for singletrack.
