Waving Summer Goodbye…Hello Winter!

by admin on October 28, 2014

Well I think its safe to say that summer is well and truly over, therefore its now time to dig out the Mountain  Bike and start enjoying the trails again. The forum rides are starting to get a good attendance, the last outing at the weekend took 11 riders from the Marin to Hafna Mines, then over to Capel Currig for a brew before returning on the Marin, check out the forum for the pictures of a great route.

The next forum rides will be posted up shortly so make sure you keep an eye on the forum and get your name down if you fancy a great day out.

Just to remind us what a good summer it has been, here is a great picture of 10 year old Greg with his Dad Chris on their first mission up Snowdon early one morning in June.

Great Weekends

by admin on November 14, 2013

As well as a weekend trip to sample some of Scotland’s finest trails, last weekend also saw a group make the trip down to Long Mynd for a day of riding some XC haven and a third group making the most of the good weather to do a local ride over the Conway area. However, a number of the MBNW girls joined up with girls from another three clubs (Rhos on Sea CC, V.C. Melyd and CMC) for a great day out mountain biking in the sun! Great to see all the clubs working together to get 17 girls out for a day’s riding.
