Created for Mountain bikers. A place to share chat, advice and to organise rides. MTB Guisborough welcomes new members to join up.
Started by Darren "Lemming" Thompson in Cash in the attic? on Wednesday.
For 2013, MTBG are proud to announce a significant partnership with a major MTB manufacturer to help promote dig days at Guisborough: through patient negotiation and no small amount of behind-the-scenes work, Orange mountain bikes have arranged for a number of prizes to be made available to those who attend the MTBG dig days at Guisborough. These prizes include:
Don't be shy; come and say hello and get involved. It's only through the involvement of volunteers such as you that mountain biking has an official future at Guisborough. While the big bucks are spent elsewhere in North Yorkshire, we need to have all the relevant authorities hear the collective voice of North-Eastern mountain bikers and make them understand that there is a clear, vociferous demand for an improved and well-maintained red route here in our local area. We, as a group of local riders, are committed to helping secure this level of investment in any way we can. We look forward to welcoming trailbuilders old and young, expert or novice at our 2013 digs.
For further information and a list of dig dates click the trailbuilding tab at the top of the page.
The MTBG Team are proud to announce yet another benefit to joining the MTBG club. Pictured above is team member And with Andy, proprietor of the Branch Walkway Café located at Pinchinthorpe Visitor Centre. Andy has kindly agreed to offer 20% off all food and drink to MTBG club members on production of a valid membership card. The team would like to thank Andy for his generosity and support and wish him all the success in his new business. If you would like to take advantage of this offer whilst supporting your local MTB trails, you can join the club here.
MTBG 2012 Charity Xmas Ride
Once more, massive thanks to all those who helped out with the MTBG Christmas Charity Ride this year: on 27th January, five MTBG members met up with members of CSRT to hand over a cheque for over £1100 thanks to the generosity of all involved. The total raised is somewhere approaching £1500 as some members donated directly to the CSRT. MTBG would also like to extend huge appreciation to all the shops who donated raffle prizes including Bike Scene, Peddlers, Westbrooks, Bike Traks and Bike Lights UK.

Regular Group Rides
The Tuesday and Thursday night rides continue throughout the year and welcome members old and new to come along and experience some of the best trails and XC routes that Guisborough Forest and North Yorkshire Moors has to offer. Visit the rides and events page for further details.
Guisborough Trail Building Project
The official MTBG dig days to improve and develop Guisborough's forest trails continue each month in partnership with SingletrAction. Everybody is welcome to come along and help out but you'll need your SingletrAction membership first so you're insured to dig. All funds raised by SingletrAction are invested back into the trails to cover tools and hardcore. Check out the rides & events page for the next dig day.
