Founded in 2002, the Bede’s Mountain Biking Club goes out twice a week year round, rain or shine, and we are also a popular choice on Saturday mornings as part of the Weekend Programme.
Most of our riding takes place within the beautiful surrounds of Friston Forest, which is situated on the South Downs Way, and we also ride in the picturesque national South Downs National Park.
The majority of our riding is single-track, but we also ride cross country.
Each activity session sees a minimum of two staff members and up to ten students riding out, with numbers limited for safety reasons.
All bikes and helmets are provided (Specialized or Marin) and we welcome all abilities from beginners to experts and do our best to make each ride as exciting as possible.
