Sherwood Pines Cycling Club is centred around the Sherwood Pines Forest Park in north Nottinghamshire. Although the park has three graded biking trails, it is the wealth of lesser known and hidden routes that form the bulk of the MTB riding in this area.

There are rides all around Sherwood Pines as well as longer routes out to Clumber Park and Creswell Crags to name just a few. There is a place for everyone at Sherwood Pines Cycling Club, young and old as we are a riding club not a racing club.

Our ride leaders have unparalleled local knowledge giving you a great opportunity to discover some of the best trails that the pines and surrounding countryside has to offer.

Come along for a free ride or two and check us out!

Choose a ride that matches your fitness level and mileage capability for maximum enjoyment. Some rides will be graded quick or fast so please check the ride descriptions match your riding level before attending.
