girls ALIVE - Cross Country Cycling
The idea for Cross Country (or XC) riding is to get outside explore, take in the view, and have fun. XC riding emphasises endurance and distance covered above technical skill and difficulty of the terrain.
Some rides are short and local and some are a bit further afield taking advantage of the wonderful countryside we have in the SE corner of England. We ride on a mix of tracks, "non-technical" trails, byways, bridleways, disused railway lines, canal towpaths, and quiet roads.
The location, surface and distance varies so details are provided for each ride so that you can choose the ride best for your riding style and level, from beginner to more advanced adventurer.
A wide variety of bikes are suitable for XC riding including hardtail mountain bikes, full-suspension mountain bikes, or gravel bikes.
We plan to offer a Saturday ride every 4 weeks plus additional weekend or evening rides when we can. All rides are posted on Spond, our club app, a few days before. Scroll down to the page below to see the range of rides we offer.
