1st – 3rd June 2018
The UK’s premier social mountain biking gathering
Check out top UK brands
We'll have some of your favourite MTB brands showing off their products in our brands village
Three days of riding fun!
With a Friday evening guided ride, the main MTBMeetup on Saturday and a natural trails ride on Sunday there's something for everyone
Free beer and a north-shore track for the kids
The beer isn't for the kids. Obviously.
We don’t charge a penny to come to the MTBMeetup and the organisers do it for the love of it! But we do like to do our bit of giving back and over the last few years we’ve raised thousands of pounds for some great charities though our MTBMeetup Raffle.
How does it work?
Well, we harass a load of really generous companies to send us a load of really cool MTB kit and we give it all away in a raffle. To enter, simply head over to our Justgiving page using the button below and make a donation. For every £5 in your donation, we’ll give you a raffle number.
We draw the raffle over lunch on the Saturday of the MTBMeetup so please make sure you are there or someone else is to collect your prize. Non collected prizes will be redrawn.

What is it about?
MTBMeetup : Born on Twitter, lives on the trail.
Social media is a great way of discovering like minded people with the same interests as you. But for something like mountain biking, it shouldn't and cannot replace the act of getting out there and sharing the great outdoors on two wheels.
Ride. Your. Bike.
At the heart of MTBMeetup is the simple notion of riding your bike with other people who like to ride bikes. Nothing more complicated than that. There are rides in the trail centre, rides outside the trail centre. There are some organised rides, but mainly it is a case of you, coming along, riding your bike and meeting people doing the same.
Run by friends not sponsors
MTBMeetup is free. The time to create the event comes entirely from volunteers. We have a carefully curated group of independent companies selling great products, we think you love, but we are not a business. We've also managed to source a few treats, experiences and goodies from Friends of MTBMeetup, but at the end of the day, the reason we exist is to meet people who ride bikes.
What to expect
So what does MTBMeetup look like? Where did it come from? What can I expect?
Check out this video to see how a bit of forest, some great trails, beer, sunshine and thousands of happy bikers make MTBMeetup!
The MTBMeetup is not for profit. The organisers do it for the love of it but we like to raise money for a charity each year. We do this through our MTBMeetup raffle which is full of prizes from really generous brands. Please check them out and give them a follow:
RIDE NORTH WALES
The MTBMeetup team are going for a ride from the campsite at 6pm. It’s not guided ride (we’re not allowed to do that) but you’re welcome to tag along. The team from Ride North Wales will be meeting us in the forest for a chat about the area and the work they are doing
We will leave at 6pm and will finish at the Grousemoor at 7.30pm for a hot buffet (must be pre-ordered) and drinks. If you can’t make the ride you’re welcome to join us for food and drinks and the Ride North Wales team will be around for a chat about riding in the area.
On the Sunday if you want to try out a big Natural Trails ride to see what else is around Llandegla RideNorthWales have put together a special MTBMeetup route. You can find it here with a downloadable PDF map.
We'd really rather stick to social media but if you do need to make a covert enquiry then shoot us a message. We can't promise we'll reply straight away though!
The MTBMeetup will be held at:
One Planet Adventure
Coed Llandegla Forest,
But please don't post them stuff as we don't work there
