Reasons to join

Joining [sitename] is 100% free. That’s right, there’s no cost involved to become a fully fledged member of the fastest growing community in the UK. If you decide to signup, it’ll take a mere five minutes of your time, and if you need convincing, here’s a couple reasons why.

Forum’s forum is the busiest around. There’s more discussions, witterings and plain old ranting taking place in here than anywhere else you’d care to imagine. Talk about your latest purchase, that race you did so well in last weekend, your agony at the state of the trails/roads/traffic, and generally let off steam. It’s a friendly place, just don’t forget to wipe your feet on the doormat on your way in.


Post-Christmas is the perfect time to clear out your garage of some old unwanted frames, wheels and other bits. It’s a safe place to sell stuff and to look for new shiny bits to make your bike complete.


This is your chance to really share your epic (or not so epic) rides with the rest of us. Got a particularly stunning piece of landscape you’ve ridden through? With 3mb of space you’ve got no excuse to upload all your fave pics. You can rate other peoples photos and even start discussions around them.

Local Shops

There is where you can find all the bike shops in your area. It’ll give you all their details, like where they’re based, phone numbers, email addresses and links to their websites if they have one.

Local Clubs

Riding on your own is great for a while, but you can’t beat the thrill of riding with a bunch of like-minded people. Search by postcode for other riders in your area.


And to reward all our members for being part of [sitename], we run regular competitions, usually with answers so simple that you’d be a fool not to enter.
