MB Swindon

MB Swindon is a mountain bike club based in Swindon. I joined around 2 years ago and as mentioned previously I try to ride as much as I can with them.

Well tonight was the AGM and I have to take my hat off to the guys that run the club, as it takes some work. It’s easy to think its just a couple of guys arranging for a larger group of guys (and girls) to go and ride their bikes from time to time. But it’s so much more than that.

I guess I never gave it much thought before but to be a club proper you need to have chairman, treasurer, secretary and you need to keep accounts etc. This in itself is a big task, but on top of this there is a challenging feature packed MTB trail that is constantly being maintained and adapted to add more and more features.

Did I mention that there are organised rides? Local and national rides are organised practically every weekend to cater for all levels of skill and fitness. If this doesn’t satisfy you they also organise trips away within the UK and even to France to the alps.

This year MB Swindon has also organised sponsors for two teams to compete in cross country and gravity enduro races…

These guys put in the work that make my mountain bike life easier, thanks to the MB Swindon team, I never really appreciated how much work was involved until tonight. Good job…

Want to know more, why not visit the packed web site for details of rides, membership benefits and discounts, training courses and mountain bike articles and photos.

  1. Thanks Tim. Yes it is a lot of work, but it’s rewarding too.

    Just realised that the last time I stood up in front of you and presented something, it was the early 90s and the talk was on software for a car park…

    1. I’d like to say I remember that presentation but I was probably not paying attention and trying to flick stuff at you from the back of the room!
