Night Rides

If you are already an experienced mountain bike rider and you’re looking for more challenging riding – this is it.

We usually have three groups riding year round and named after curries to denote the ‘hotness’ of the group!

Times and location may vary, please see the Forum before each ride for details.


Location: Winchester

Time: Tuesdays at 6.30pm

Duration: Around 2 hours riding and 15 – 25 kilometres (10 to 15 miles).

Tikka Massala

Location: Winchester and surrounding area.

Time: Thursdays at 6.45pm

Duration: Around 2½ hours riding and 25 – 30 kilometres (15 to 20 miles).


Location: Winchester, Southampton and the New Forest

Time: Thursdays at 6.30pm

Duration: Around 3 – 3½ hours riding and 30 – 40 kilometres (20 to 25 miles).


Evening rides extend well into the dark hours so you will need lights suitable for off-road that last throughout the ride, plus a bit for mechanicals/getting lost. A good guide for lights is to be able to see detail on the ground about 5m (16ft) in front of your bike. Typical commuting lights won’t get you past the car park exit!
