Mix it up on the Blorenge

We can tailor this ride to any skill level, starting at blue (not a complete novice). We find the best days are for those wanting to go a little outside of the comfort zone, riding more rocks, skinny tracks, and willing to smile while we climb. We don’t mess about, but get you out riding some of the best the Blorenge has to offer.

Blorenge may only be 550m high, but there are so many fun ways to ride down it feels much bigger.  It also runs best in the Spring and Autumn... we let the bracken do it's thing in the summer months. :D Our infamous megamix, because riding the Blorenge means there are at least 8 ways to skin this cat.
