A big welcome to 2013 and a big hello to all the new folk that have joined in the last few months.
As you can no doubt see, we have had our membership increase quite a lot in the last 6 months, and with that a big demand in places for rides, with many being oversubscribed very quickly. This is good, as it shows the success of the group and our ethos of helping along beginners and putting on exciting and diverse rides, but the downside being that many cannot get out as they are still on waiting lists.
As such, it would be great to have more "Hosts" posting and taking out rides, even if they clash with other ones, as there seems to be the demand for it.
You don't need to have any qualifications to host rides, just an enthusiasm for Mountain Biking, and be able to plan and detail a route, make sure everyone is accounted for and no-one gets left behind, oh, and that everyone enjoys themselves!
Some basic MTB skills and mechanical knowledge would be good too, but again enthusiasm and getting on with folk are equally important.
So, if you are interested in posting rides, then please drop me an e-mail. Always looking for rides in new locations and area's.
Remember, informal rides can be posted via the discussion forum on the Meet Up site and on the Facebook page.
A few points to remember when posting a ride:
Thanks for reading and have happy and safe biking.
