Here at MBUK we hate finding litter on the trails. It’s bad for the environment, unsightly, takes away from that feeling of being ‘at one’ with nature and, in the case of discarded gel wrappers and tear-offs, makes it harder to argue for improved access for mountain bikers. So we’ve teamed up with the good folk at Trash Free Trails for MBUK Cleans Up!, a new campaign where we’re encouraging our readers to take home any rubbish they find and recycle it. Of course, we’ll be pitching in too.

As an added bonus for subscribers, we’ll be giving away a Trash Free Trails x Endura jersey in Subs Zone each month to whoever sends us the best litter pick photo. This could be a shot of you with a big bag of discarded drinks bottles you’ve collected or – even better – before and after snaps of a trash-pocalypse that you’ve managed to clear up. Send your entries to mbuk@immediate.co.uk with the subject line MBUK Cleans Up! or post them on Instagram with the hashtag #mbukcleansup.
