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 team from Ride North Wales will be taking us out on a guided ride from the Llyn Rhys campsite on the Friday night. Staff from Denbighshire Council will meet us and show us some of the delights of the area.
We will leave at 5pm and do a second pickup at the campsite at 630pm. Bring some money for a drink and chips at a community Pub!
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 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.
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
