What is MTB Meetup?
MTB Meetup is a social MTB gathering organised by Si Bradley aka @Good_Guy_Si with the word spread via the world of Twitter @MTBMeetupUK
The MTB Meetup took place over the weekend of 18th and 19th April 2015 at One Planet Adventure in Llandegla, North Wales.
This was my first year at the Meetup, I was there to meet other riders, ride great trails and also to serve the free beer which I had organised from Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery. Prior to the event we run a competition on Twitter to name the beer for the event, we had a good number of entries and the winner picked out was Berm Basher!
Eager to get out and ride, I got the beer setup and ready to serve and off I went on the first ride with a bunch of guys I didn’t know, putting a face to all the different Twitter handles. With a group of like minded people who are all there for the same thing it’s not hard to make friends and we were soon having good laughs and banter en route.
Next we headed out on the second ride of the day, after riding Llandeglla red and black first up we took to the blue this time round, playing on some features on the way. After anothe top ride we returned to finish off the Berm Basher, eat more cake and have a good old English raffle!
What a superb idea for a day out, with over 150 people attending I met new friends, new riding buddies and even new business contacts. If your not on Twitter join it just so you can find out when the next one is! Great effort Si!
