“Ride it! is all about getting people out on their bikes” says event manager Dean Stacey. “We research the trails, mark out the courses, plot it on a map and provide support throughout the day. All you need to do is turn up and ride!”

Saturday’s mountain bike ride crosses through the National Park and includes a 700ft descent. “The route distances shouldn’t be taken lightly on this ride. With so much up and down, riding the short route on this ride is more like riding one of our medium routes at less hilly Ride It! venues” says Dean.

Route options are available, either a short 15 mile spin or a medium 25 mile ride. The £10 entry fee includes: pre-marked routes; free Memory Map OS map for each rider; free SIS energy food & drink; free kids entry; and mechanical service. Go to www.evanscycles.com/rideit for entry.
