Ride It! is a nation-wide series bringing together trails, courses and support through out the UK. This weekend’s event, the 11th of the series, starts from Oxted with an offroad ride on Saturday and something for the roadies on Sunday.

“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,” says event manager Dean Stacey.
