    Hi, I was wondering if there is anyone who enjoys mountain biking and lives in Derby area?

    If so then, where do you ride? Robin wood?
    Pit close?
    What bike have you got?
    What sort of biking are you doing? Dh? Fr? Xc?

    Thx

    Hey dude

    Im coming to Derby in September And I can't wait to ride the trails there.
    never thought I would find someone hahah. You got facebook? Definitely shred some trails with you when I get there.
    Ive done abit of research around Derby and seen the Peak District is very close, you should also check out Ambergate!

    I have a Cube LTD, cross country bike, but I do everything on it, downhill and freeride. Want to save up for a downhill bike! What about you?

    I currently live in Plymouth at the moment. Are you starting uni in September?

    Hi mate! That's awesome that you're coming to Derby in September ! Hmmm I've never been to either peak district or ambergate, but they look great! I only ride very local trails (the ones that don't require a car to get to LOL)

    I have an upgraded carrera fury Click image for larger version.

    But I do all sorts of things on it LOL, but yeah like you I'm more into freeride and downhill so may sell my fury to fund me a fr/dh bike.

    In terms of uni stuff, I'm in year 13 currently doing my A2s but next year I'll be on gap year as I didn't get a place at uni this year, how about you? Are you coming to Derby Uni?

    Sorry about my late reply

    Nice dude! Pretty similar to mine, however I do not have any pictures of me on mine hahaha.

    Ah coool Yeah I'm starting Derby uni in September Networks and Security course. What are you wanting to study?

    Yeah, I thought about selling my bike to fund a downhill bike but then thought what would I use for general commuting and long distance rides. Hopefully I can get a job there and make saving go faster :P

    Ambergate is only a £9 return on the train from Derby, pretty good tbh What local trails are there around Derby?

    I want to do dentistry but I got rejected from all my choices so I'm on a gap year

    There's a good couple of trails in robin wood near Derby and Melbourne but that's the only one I know really LOL

    Ambergate looks great, I will probably check it out after my exams do you think you could pm your the link of your fb profile?
