live tracking of rides  & gpx routes for OTT riders

Welcome to OTT Mountainbike 



Based in and around Harpenden, Hertfordshire we are an ever growing group of MTB riders (over 150 registered) who enjoy getting wet,muddy and tired (well some of us anyway) and stopping for the odd pint of beer or two. There are varying levels of speed and fitness from the tri-athletes and skiers, to the slower and less fit (that's me-Rich)

Our NEWBIES ride is usually 1st Sunday of the month this is normally around 3 hours and 25k, regular Sunday rides are a little longer/faster 35-50k and the midweek rides are quicker still for 2 hours plus. Most rides are local trails, XC (as there are not many hills) with some very decent singletrack in the woods and as little tarmac as possible. 


We do rider further and longers distances so if you ride regularly with us you will get the chance to visit the trail centres and other exotic destinations. Staring in August each month we will also have an OTT rider take us on their local trails in Herts, Beds or Bucks.Plus for the experienced riders we have night-rides (ask about these when you join us on a sunday)

You can join us on Sunday morning riding madness through Hertfordshire, all you need is a helmet a bike and also a sense of humour (this line has been pinched by other bike groups with websites)and a degree of fitness even for the newbies ride.


We are not a club and therefore have no fees - but a couple of times each year we mention to our regular  riders about a voluntary donation to cover the cost of running the website.


What will you get when coming along to OTT
