    welcome Rachel

    Sorry about the slow reply, we were away on holiday for two weeks, then full on at work this past week. I did a reply mid-week but got bombed out of the internet.
    Rachel, the club has the full age range from the 20's to the 70's, with a whole range of fitness and abilities. You may be fitter than you think! If you are completely new to mountain biking, then as others have suggested, get yourself on a skills course (this will teach you the safe position on a bike), to hopefully avoid an OTB - over the bars, and trail centres are a good starting point, progressing through the graded trails.
    If you feel fit enough / confident enough then get yourself on an intro ride, to gauge where you're at?
    The official club rides tend to be done at quite a fast pace (too fast for me anyway) so lots of people (incl me) tend to do their own NCR (non club rides) at the pace of their choosing. We know a good (not too techie) route around Buxton, we could give you a shout next time we're planning a Peaks outing? Our pace is relaxed, plenty of stops, chat, photos, faff - we stay out as long as it takes, and always finish in the pub with a meal and well earned beer. You might feel like you're out with ''mum & dad'' though but welcome to join us.
    Welcome to the forum.
    Man Up!

    Did someone say the club rides were at a quick pace!

    Think the club rides will suit the slower ones better than a quick rider...

    Check your skill level on a newbie ride and have a go

    If paying anything, don't forget to pm me with details, what it is for, and by what method. Cheers.
