4X Mountain Bike

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi, im wanting to join the forces and i like mountain biking, does anyone know if the army has a 4X mountain biking team as i can't seem to find anything on the net.
    Help is much appreciated, thanks, Jonty
     
  2. What's a 4X mountain biking team?
     
  3. A mountain bike team that drinks Castlemaine XXXX Lager?
     
  4. Army cycling is led by the Army Cycling Union. Not sure if they have a '4X' team but if they don't, I'm sure they're keen on having somebody start one.

    Pretty sure they have. Certainly a few years ago they even had one of the guys of the GB team riding in the Olympic as it was put forward as a demo sports. He was from 1RS. Don't know if he is still in.

    I think I can put you in touch with a Inf bloke can give you chapter and verse about the opportunities to ride. Loon takes his bike everywhere. Works down in Blandford at the mo and is with his attitude, IMHO, certifiable. :D
