The reservoir goats and chicks MTB clubs were born to cater for like-minded riders that wanted a bit of everything in their riding portfolio. Starting way back in the late eighties / early nineties the “goats” found a love and madness for riding a new breed of bikes that were born to the cycling market. Over the years bike specifications have changed radically and alongside this so has our riding styles and abilities.
We like to think we are a mix of XC – downhill – free ride – all mountain kinda club. Testament to how we ride and the dedication we have for people’s abilities, we bring people into the club and take them to another level they never thought they could reach with the emphasis on enjoying the ride. OK so we don’t bounce as much as when we were kids, but we are all still kids inside, we just loose it when we become sensible adults!
We ride all year round so that does include night riding. Wednesdays – summer downhill & freeride at Woburn Bike park, winter night rides around Woburn. Sunday mornings are our main club ride with loops ranging from 8K to 38K taking in ‘The big dipper’, ‘The Roller Coaster – RC1′, RC2, Hogans, Ginger, Dusty bottom, ‘Crash – Bang – Wallop – Ouch!’, Goat’s Back Passage, Jamster, Star Wars, Empire, Spooky Woods to name a few mouth watering trail sections. We also organise weekends away to various ride locations around the UK and trips abroad, DH & Enduro race events and stacks of other social events.
