The Basel Badgers are an English speaking, off-road bike community. We are primerilly Baselland/Alsace/Blackforest oriented, typically riding for 2-4hrs on single-track & forest trails with 3-800m ascents starting within 10Km of Basel (land/stadt) every weekend with some mid-week days/evenings too. We also take frequent trips out of town to the mountain trails & parks when open. From spring we attend XC/VTT events in the beautiful Alsace region, during the summer we have mid-week evening rides & BBQs. During the darker winter months we do mud & night-rides too. What's more, we have regular (beers & gears) social gatherings for food & drinks around Basel & beyond.
The Basel Badgers MtB Community began as a weekly bulletin to polarise a small groupof hap-hazzard bike buddies looking to get out on the trails, share a few beers & see more of the region & Europe. Now we are rigid, fat, hard & soft-tail platform & even familly friendly, 24/26/27.5/29" & Plus format friendly, loving single-track, rock, roots, mud & sunshine. We like impproving our bike-skills. We crave cross-country, freeride, downhill, enduro, pump, dirt, slope and all-mountain styles. Our Honey Badgers are more compatative, they occasionally race and do it all with a bit more bite! We dig bike porn and social intercourse, BBQs, beer, curry and everything inbetween.
So, welcome to the MtB Badger set, we look forward to sharing some MtB action & memories with you soon.
