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.

Test your navigation and strategy by entering one of the four off-road adventures we have organised. Using a waterproof 1:25,000 OS map which we provide, navigate trails and hills on foot and bike to collect as many checkpoints as you can in the set time. You plan your own strategy and route, deciding how many CPs you want to visit and in what order. You will lose 1 point for each 30s you are late coming back. All checkpoints are worth 10 points each. Distance covered depends on how many checkpoints are visited, and depends entirely on your level of fitness, as well as your running/biking and map reading skills.

The Downs Dash, starting at Cranleigh Showground, sits below a perfect mixed ability riding area of bridleways, single tracks, technical descents and tough climbs.

The route begins entering forest areas on a slight ascent up single track bridleways as you start your journey towards Farley Heath. The route gives a wide range of gravel tracks, short bursts of road climbs, sandy tracks, winding and technical descents.

Once at Farley Heath the route heads East towards the first feed station where riders can re-hydrate before re-joining the course towards Holmbury St Mary where the course splits for the epic and standard riders.

The epic riders then head off on a five-mile loop through the woodland tracks towards Broadmoor, encountering technical single track and some more steep climbs followed by the enjoyable descents not long after! Then the tough part begins as it joins the sandy track along the bottom of Wotton Common to the start of the technical, rocky climb towards the top of Leith Hill. The riders will experience a spectacular view from the top of Leith Hill before heading down a technical single track descent to re-join the standard loop.

All the riders will then be challenged by more steep road climbs and bridleway tracks to end their journey descending the single track to the showground.

As you pass the finish line, riders will receive a finishers T shirt, a medal and more goodies. Food and drink will be available at the finish where you can enjoy the delights of your days riding.

Now in its 8th year, this ride is a favourite amongst staff and participants. The route is entirely within the confines of Cannock Chase, giving us incredible scenery and spectacular riding from start to finish. We start on a stretch of fantastic single track before heading off to explore some of the manmade trails on the Chase. A variety of great trail riding, including an abundance of fast paced woodland terrain, make this ride a brilliant day of off-road cycling.

As with all RIDE IT events, there will be well stocked High5 feed stations along the route, friendly staff and fellow riders throughout

This route has been carefully chosen by local members of staff and is a fantastic off-road experience from start to finish. The natural gradients of the area make for a dramatic ride which features both beautiful tree-lined trails and fast-paced single-track.

Weve made sure to include some flinty descents, tough climbs and fast ridge top trails. The quality of this route is evident throughout and we think you'd be hard pushed to find a better route anywhere else in this stunning part of the Chilterns.
