BSO Ed Oxley Ride

Ride out with Ed Oxley

Suitability: Riders with a reasonable level of fitness

Ride out from Thornbridge, coffee stop, 3/4 hours, suitable for any mountain bike, reasonable level of fitness but you don't need to be a racing snake - social ride kind of thing

Ed is the owner operator of Great Rock. He has seven years experience of running guided mountain bike holidays and skills courses in the UK and abroad. He has gained a certain notoriety for his offbeat mountain bike films and has also featured in and written for several mountain bike magazines and websites. Ed has been supported by Alpkit with bikepacking gear for most of this time. 

This will be a laid back and fun mountain bike ride; guided but not a skills course.
