Off road Virgin

Post by andy1969 on Mon Apr 17, 2017 11:59 pm

Hi guys

I have been riding bikes since I was 18 (now 47) but have never ridden off road, what are my best options for riding off road, I would love to join some off the rides you guys do on here, but will probably be well out of my depth, what would you recommend for me?

Cheers

Andy

Wait till you see a ride posted and ask if you can join it.
If you find it to hard going you can always go home early and wait for anther ride and join that.
That way you,l get to meet people and get an idea what rides suit you.

If you see a ride posted for the woods or Wye Valley avoid them for a few months  lol!

Look out for "Newbie ride" or "Ride will suit all" if your unsure...but sometimes its best to just jump straight in, No one ever gets left behind & if anyone has a problem with bike or just had enough all the ride leader's & riders on here i know will make sure you get to the road & make sure you know your way back or will make sure you get there if needed cheers  Like Steve said tho....! if woods /explore/ the wye/ river crossings/ night lights are mentioned... Tis best to wait for the next one

Maybe change it from ' Newbie ' to ' Fresh Meat ' ? You can't beat a Wye ride with a few virgins Twisted Evil
