Wiggle Fallen Leaves MTB Sportive 2018Fontwell, West Sussex, GB

The backdrop of West Sussexs share of the South Downs is arguably one of the best with which you can conclude your trail-seeking cycling season. This December event will give you chance to wrap up your off-road calendar in the tranquillity of the National Park as you take in swooping downhill sections and great views out on the compact wooded course.

Leaving from Fontwell Racecourse, youll head out and cross over the A27, past Eartham and over Nore Hill before entering the South Downs loop, which heads around the area in a clockwise motion passing through trails and zig-zagging in and out of fast runs in the dense woodland area, which varies in terrain consistently.

Shortly after the Standard and Epic routes split, the longer route heads into the South Downs park for some fast single track trails, before skirting around the base of Court Hill to come back out and re-join the main clockwise loop that continues on the hills through East Dean, and Charlton, then heading into the wooded section once more for more narrow trails.

The section of the ride from Heyshott Down to Littleton Down is quick and free-flowing, as it sticks to wider main trails on rolling terrain. Youll be able to appreciate the woodland at speed before one last technical part of the route, which is steep to climb but fast in return going downhill, from the point of the second feed stop around Barlavington Down and across Farm Hill and beyond.

Soon enough, youll be on the final straight once heading out of the National Park circular loop. The lateness of this event in the calendar may conspire with the weather to ensure you cross the finish line caked in mud, but youll be able to wash away the evidence of a great ride in idyllic surroundings when you get back to the ride HQ.

Cold. Wet. Dark. Theres something slightly mad about the mountain biker who takes on a 24 hour race. How about winter in Kielder to tickle your fancy? Solo, pairs or quads. This competitive event will give you the chance to keep your cycling mo-jo going and challenge yourself in what can be some severely testing conditions. Bring supporters or bring your team mates and spend the weekend out on the course as you summon up the strength of mind and body to keep going.

Evans Cycles Hampshire MTBBasingstoke, Hampshire, GB

Now in its sixth year, this winter off-road gem is not to be missed.

Starting just south of Basingstoke, we're straight out into the beautiful Hampshire countryside enjoying a myriad of trails. It's one of our flatter rides that should allow riders to get a decent pace going whilst keeping warm in the December air! A sprinkling of valley inclines make this a great winter challenge, whilst open farmland and wooded sections should please all types of off-road rider.

As with all RIDE IT events, there will be a choice of ride lengths, High5 feed stations and friendly riders throughout.

What you need to know about mountain biking

Mountain biking is riding bicycles off-road (as opposed to Road Cycling events) and often over rough terrain, using specially designed bikes with features designed to enhance durability and performance. Mountain biking can generally be broken down into multiple categories: cross country, trail riding, all mountain (also referred to as “Enduro”), downhill, freeride and dirt jumping. However, the majority of mountain biking falls into the categories of Trail and Cross Country riding styles.

Find the right Mountain biking event for you

Mountain bikers ride off-road trails such as singletrack, back-country roads, fire roads, and often venture to ski resorts that stay open in the summer for such activities. Because riders are often far from civilisation, there’s a strong ethic of self-reliance in the sport. Riders learn to repair broken bikes and flat tires to avoid getting stranded. Many riders carry a backpack, including water, food, tools for trailside repairs and a first aid kit in case of injury. Group rides are common, especially on longer treks. Map navigation skills will come in handy.

Here at Let’s Do This we want to help you find exactly the right event. By working with some of the most renowned Mountain Bike Race organisations in the space, we’ve got a great selection of epic challenges below.
