Mountain Biking Group Burnley & Blackburn


Looking for new places to ride?

If you are looking for new places to go riding in and around Burnley & Blackburn? Or new people to go riding with? Then this is the place for you!

At On Yer Bike we love riding bikes! It's one of the best parts of our job! So we do weekly social rides to get out and about around Lancashire!

During the spring and summer, we run Wednesday night rides, with a different location each week made up of about 10 local mountain bike trails in and around Burnley & Blackburn.

But during the winter months, because the weather can be a bit hit and miss factor, we switch to a monthly ride on a Sunday.

This weeks ride - May the 18th


Location - Gisburn Forrest
This week we will be heading to Gisburn Forrest!
The route will depend on the group as we make sure everyone of all levels can enjoy the ride. We are looking at doing the lower loop, but may do more if people feel up to it.
As usual, we will be looking to set off at about 7:00
So far this season we have seen lots of new faces joining in which has made the rides even better. If you are unsure of joining in, call us up in-store and we can give you more information.
