Middleton Mountain Bike Group

Based in Middleton-by-Wirksworth, Derbyshire, the MMBG have been riding together since 2008. Started by a group of friends, the group has attracted new members, not just from Middleton but also from the surrounding towns and villages. The MMBG meet on Thursday evening at 5.45pm below the Nelson Pub, Middleton. The routes are circular and typically start and end in Middleton although we sometimes travel to a prearranged alternate location in the area to explore new routes. We also have two away rides each year (spring and autumn), these rides involve a stopover, large quantities of beer and an obligatory curry.
