About us

Welcome!  Congratulations – you’ve discovered the best and most established mountain bike club in Glasgow, sponsored by Marina Cycles.  Riding since 1987, we’ve grown to become one of the largest active MTB clubs in the country.

The club has a diverse membership; young and old, men & women, those who like to race, those who like a sociable ride, those who like exploring beyond the trail centre.  One thing that we all have in common is a passion for all things cycling.  With such a broad  membership the types of riding the club gets involved with varies from general cross country riding, to all-mountain epics, from racing (XC, enduro, marathons, CX) to social & pub rides and even road & track cycling !!

What’s the club like?

  • Why not come along and find out firsthand?  There’s no need to be a paid up member to try a few rides with us.
  • If you’re new to mountain biking then the club is a welcoming environment for you to take your first steps in a new sport where you’ll be supported by experienced riders
  • If you’re an experienced rider then you’ll also find like-minded individuals keen on pushing their riding on
  • If you’ve not ridden with the club for a while then why not come back and see how it’s developed in the last few years?  We think you’ll like what you see
  • If you’re still undecided then watch our TV appearance on STV Glasgow’s Riverside Show to get an idea of why people enjoy riding with the club:
