Any other mountain bikers here ?

#1 Postby Big Good Wolf » Wed Jul 15, 2009 7:42 am

I keep claiming to be the UK's only vegan mountain bike racer in the hope that someone will prove me wrong.
I've got three friends who have done one race each and one of them competes in trailquests (mountain bike orienteering), but I'm the only vegan I know who is regularly racing in MTB marathons.
There's a group of us from the UK South West/Midlands who meet up once a month for a ride and there's been talk of getting a vegan team together for a marathon or having a go at downhill racing, but it hasn't happened yet.

So, is there anyone else here racing ?
Anyone in the UK interested in meeting up for a social ride or joining a marathon team for a 12 or 24 hour race ?

I hope we can prove you wrong! :)

I'd love to hear of more......I find through my travels that there are far more vegan athletes than we know of....plenty who don't use forums, or have profiles online...I meet them everyday and it's awesome!

I'm sure they are out there......let's go find them! :)

All the best....I look forward to hearing about your training, races, etc.
