Wye MTB Christmas Ride

Where: Meet at Pedalabikeaway, Forest of Dean

Join us for a very special Thursday Late on 2nd December with our friends at Wye MTB who’ll be leading a night ride around the Forest with a difference – fancy dress! We think this is the perfect opportunity to see if reindeer antlers on your helmet make you go faster, or to add fairy lights to your night light ensemble.

For a mere £10, you’ll get a guided ride plus our special Christmas burger and a mulled cider when you get back. There are three rides; intermedia, advanced, and intermediate eMTB. Places are limited though so make sure you book soon!

And as an added incentive, there will be prizes for the best fancy dress! Time to break out those seasonal costumes…

Get in the Christmas spirit at our family bike park near Aberdare in Wales. It’s time to don your best Christmas fancy dress and join in the Santa Ride! Whether you go as the jolly man himself, an elf, Mrs Claus, a reindeer, or just like to deck you and your bike up in tinsel and lights, you’re bound to have a merry time.

The bike park is perfect for families, beginners and intermediate riders, with a beautiful flowing blue that’s a whole lot of fun, plus several pump tracks. You can ride up, or there’s also an uplift available to book on which takes all the effort out of getting back to the top.
