Welcome to the CastleMTB Club website.

Over the coming weeks this will be updated with all the new and up to date information about the club and our activities.

If you have anything that you would like to add please get in touch.

We have weekly club rides on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings, with “Nick’s ride” also making a come back on Saturday mornings. The weekly rides take in the local trails around Castle Coch, Rudry, Machen Woods, Wylie, Ochrwyth and Machen Mast

We also arrange away days, such as Afan Masts, Afan bike park, BPW, FOD, Cwmcarn, Brecon XC rides, or sometimes we keep to local trails. We also arrange a couple of weekends away such as North Wales. Away days/day trips and weekends away are only open to paid up CastleMTB members (see memberships for details)

All rides are posted up on our club Facebook page, if you are interested please join our Facebook page, alternatively email us on Castlemtb@gmail.com

##### RIDE CANCELLED#####

Wednesday starter ride Wednesday 28 sept

Meet at 6.45 PM, LLwyn Hir car park (just past maen LLwyn pub on the left
.
We will ride between 6- 9 miles and I always aim to return to the car park around 9.00. This ride will suit you if you want to increase your MTB fitness and increase your confidence on the trails.
I would class this ride as Blue and most of the riding is off road and
It will be dark so you will need lights. It is also likely to be muddy

I would recommend you bring a drink and if you plan to join us on a regular basis you will need at least an inner tube (please check your wheel size), pump and tyre levers. Please feel to ask any experienced member of the club about what equipment you need on the trail.

Don't forget no helmet no ride and its total enjoyment but at your own risk.....

Please note that the forestry operation will unfortunatly start in Machen next week. 'The unoficial' #MTB trails will be closed off on Monday morning (26th) and we ask you to keep out of the forest for your own safety and the safety of the operators. We are in early discussions with a group of local riders regarding the sites future post felling so please help us get the work done as quick as we can by keeping off the trails. Note the work site is coloured Pink in the map. Cheers for your assistance. I will also be around the Enduro at Cwmcarn if you want to have a chat about it. #NatResWales #Cognation
