Introduced in 2005 in conjunction with One Planet Adventure at Coed Llandegla, these popular 'bloke free' rides are only open for Women who set the pace .. and topic of conversation. Lucy Marshall is organising these rides, she is has considerable experience having raced in the UK at Elite level, a past member of the Denbighshire Local Access Forum representing cycle interests also has a degree in Sports Sciences. There are two ride levels Novice and Intermediate. If you want to turn up please contact Lucy through the NWMBA forum

The novice ride is aimed at those new to the sport maybe lacking confidence in their skills and the purpose is an introduction to the technology and skills needed to sucessfully ride off road using the novice mtb trails in the forest. Led by Lucy or Jane, help and information will be available before during and after the ride on bike set up, you will learn simple skills in off-road riding from the guides as well as the opportunity to seek advice from the centre mechanics. It is hoped after a few rides you will be able to confidently progress to the intermediate ride although you may come and ride as many novice rides as you like if you prefer the pace.

The social ride is aimed at riders with some skill proficiency riding on uneven surfaces as well as a reasonable level of fitness. Although mostly based on the trails around the forest, opportunity will also be given to venture out of the forest onto the local bridleways and tracks to develope rider skill confidence and trail knowledge to get the best out of your bike and your time.

The expert ride... up to you join the club, get a few together and post dates and places for rides exploring the great forest and mountain tracks of Wales.. and further.
