Be part of the cycling community in the forest.

At Swinley Bike hub, we regularly offer social rides, events and experiences to engage with forest users. From beginner mountain bike rides to exploring the gravel roads of Swinley Forest - there is something for everyone. 

If you want to join us, keep an eye on the calendar below for events and social rides or create and account and download the app. 

All social/free rides are not coached or guided, they are simply there to allow you to ride with others in the forest. You are fully responsible for yourself (and any minors in your charge) and your bike!

To search for a specific type of ride/event use the 'Any Type' filter at the top of the calendar below.
