Welcome to the OTT website, we are celebrating 10 years on the trails and you can see this in an image slide-reel by clicking here.

Based around Harpenden, Hertfordshire we are an ever growing (nearly 200) group of MTB riders (men & women) 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 2-3 hours and 25k, regular Sunday rides are a little longer 35-50k and quicker 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. 


From September we will be splitting the groups for distance/pace as we now have so many riders coming along so keep a look out for the grade of ride on the message board.

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. 

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).


Don't forget Sunday Newbies ride is best if you haven't ridden the local trails (off-road) for 3 hours.

Take a look at our FAQ's pages and then Contact Us if you want to come along.

We ride as a group

We don't leave anyone behind, always waiting for the last rider (a result of the odd breakdown or a drink the night before)so we don't dissapear into the dust - well actually we have once but that was 100ft from the car park so it doesn't really count.
