Mountain Bike

Kendal is the ideal place for an off-road club with the Lake District National Park and MTB centres at Grizedale and Whinlatter on its doorstep. If you feel like getting off the tarmac and onto some singletrack this is the place for you.

The club has two weekly mountain bike rides on a Wednesday and Sunday morning. These are not lead rides and you are responsible for your own safety and equipment. Bring water, food and any tools or spares that you might need. Non-members can take part in one ride. If they wish to take part in subsequent rides then they must be club members. First-time riders are covered by British Cycling’s club insurance. Repeat non-member riders are not covered by club insurance and may be held personally liable for any injury or damage they may cause.

Mountain Bike Leadership

In order to offer more rides the club needs more Mountain Bike leaders. Please contact us if you’re interested in doing a Mountain Bike leaders course. The aim of this award is to upskill volunteers, either from a basic level of MTB proficiency or from ‘in-house’ training.
