David H is ride captain for the social this week.  Ride will depart from the campus at 10am as usual and will cover 20 to 25 miles with a cafe stop.  Pace 10 to 13mph.  Nobody will be dropped.  See Facebook page for more details of the route.  Have fun!

The dates and venues for the 2018 Scottish Cross Country, Mountain Bike, race series have been released. First event is in mid March. The 2018 series includes a lot of "taster races" for people new to racing as well as all the usual age group events throughout the day.

Details are on https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/events/?series_id=127

There are many other events throughout the year.

I'd like to gauge interest in delivering a series of fun/inclusive Mountain Bike coached sessions, looking at developing all riding skills and fitness, but with an aim to get people to a level of awareness and competency at which they would feel happy to enter an event. The sessions would be progressive and would cater for riders of varied ability levels. The sessions will be of benefit to any cyclist, not just people looking to race mountain bikes.

Sessions will be delivered at various venues within a 25min drive of Kinross. Support in the form of transport, hire bikes and other equipment may be available for the sessions and some of the events.

Lets get dirty!!
