Off Road

  Stourbridge CC support general MTB riding (all year round) and cyclo-cross (winter only). We have a thriving and active group that participate in weekly organised rides from Stourbridge, plus days out further afield and racing.

Weekly rides.


Saturday "A" ride, 9.00am, start Bonded Warehouse, Canal Street, Stourbridge.

•Brisk pace, suits riders looking for a longer, faster ride than the 9:15, however still with a strong team spirit i.e. help each other out and no one is left behind.
• Different route each week, 95% off-road, possibly the occasional stretch of main road.
• The ride aims to be back between 1300 and 1400; however this cannot be guaranteed given the nature of the ride.
