Welcome to the website for Bristol Mountain Bike Club

BMBC is a club for mountain bike riders in and around Bristol, plus our friends around the UK and overseas. The club has a lot going on for riders of all interests and abilities. Whether you are after a gentle ride on the cycle paths, a quick blast around the local trails, hacking round one of the nearby purpose built trail centres, racing XC, all day back-country epics or uplift days at downhill courses, you are sure to find some like-minded people to ride with. Throughout the year, you’ll find us out on the trails - after work, dodging the housework on Sunday, escaping for a weekend trip, or taking holidays abroad. It’s not all riding, the club organises social events as well, and we have our website so we can chat, plan and share our photos. Find out more about the club here.

Take a tour around our site to find out more about us and look at what our members are getting up to. If you like what you see, why not join – all are welcome.

That would be "rockier horror", which looks like quite an old trail in need of some tlc. The trails I'm intrigued by are as a result of some strava-based research...

I may make it.. 50/50 jus because of the timings... will be out later if not... intrigued by 'the one every one is frighted of !! ..' which one is this, as its very unlikely i've been down it if its that scary !!

The trails aren't dusty, they're just the right amount of tacky (at least they were last night)

I was planning on road biking, but yeah. Might as well take advantage of the dusty trails. Shall we do the one which everyone's frightened of?
