On the 12th March the Scott Contessa Team are heading over to Dalby Forest to run a series of long and short bike rides and test sessions alongside the team at Purple Mountain.
The Scott Contessa Team are a group of female riders of mix ages and bike skills who compete in Mountain Bike, Road and Cyclo-Cross racing. Riding is all about fun and taking in the trails – there’s no chip timing or league tables!
With 50 miles of varied trails, from expert to beginner, Dalby Forest on the edge of the North York Moors is the home of the UCI World Cup XC Race and a known destination for keen riders.
Purple Mountain are based here and their knowledgeable female guides will be on hand to take you round the trails without the worry of getting lost! On the day, you’ll also get the chance to try out the latest 2011 range of hardtail and full suspension Scott Mountain bikes.
