A real world mountain bike club

Godiva Trailriders is a real world mountain bike club based in Coventry, England. The club is aimed at the enthusiast more than the elite, saying that, we are home to the triple World Endurance Mountain Bike Organization (WEMBO) World Singlespeed Champion, Steve Day !

Now, in 2019, we're in our 15th year. The club is very active and well known at a lot of events. We've over 60 regular riders and have a busy diary.

We're a Cross Country club in reality, though this covers a broad spectrum. Days, or weekends, out in Wales or Peak District are popular, as is Bikepacking and Singlespeeding.

Coventry, whilst admittedly not exactly the mountain biking centre of the universe, does have some pretty interesting rides. The way we see it, we have to make the most of what we've got and, most importantly, it's supposed to be fun.

The Club is more for "Enthusiastic Intermediates". To get the most out of our rides, a reasonable level of fitness and experience is necessary. A typical Wednesday Night Ride is 15 - 20 miles mostly offroad. However, we've all been beginners and know that learning is the hard part. We're happy to welcome keen & enthusiastic riders who're willing to learn and join in.

Our riders mainly come from Coventry, Leamington Spa, Warwick, Hinckley, Kenilworth and Nuneaton.

A thick skin really helps (and it's not just for the nettles and thorns!!), as does the ability to rip the pish out of people and laugh at your own failings!

If you fancy getting out and riding with us, join the forum by emailing me, check the Rides & Events section, and jump right in. Our usual meeting place is The Bell on Bennetts Road South, Coventry.

We reckon you may just enjoy it.
