Rough Riderz gravity biking club was formed to help disabled and able-bodied mountain bikers participate in the UK’s newest downhill MTB scene, and promote it as an integrated sport nationwide.
We ride specially designed 4 wheeled mountain bikes, using gravity alone to propel ourselves down purpose built downhill MTB trails. By raising awareness, we hope to increase interest in the sport, creating a more vibrant and inclusive biking scene.
We are a not-for-profit organisation and all our staff are volunteers. Unfortunately, the club also has no regular source of income. However, if you wish to support our aims and help keep the club running you can make a secure online donation via our PayPal account.
Our club was formed for the benefit of all members, so we invested in a spare gravity bike and safety equipment. We now offer a unique Taster Day scheme for newcomers to the sport, to encourage more people to get involved and have a go!
As interest and membership grows we also continue talking with various groups and organisations, to help create and develop more accessible gravity biking venues and trails.
We also try to share as much information as possible through our social media and the www.GravityBiking.com website about good UK trails, potential new trails, good foreign venues and/or holidays, competitions, events and any other relevant news…
If you have any other questions about the club then simply contact the Secretary via email: firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
