We've joined forces with Nukeproof and suicide prevention charity Campaign Against Living Miserably to launch Ride Together, a series of group ride-outs designed to raise awareness of CALM’s lifesaving work and enable mountain bikers to create a network of like-minded people to head out for a mood-boosting ride with.


Our aim with these guided and supported group rides from well-established trail centres in Wales, Scotland and England is to bring together riders – whether beginner or experienced – in a relaxed environment where there's not only the chance to tackle some fun trails, but also time to chat over a brew.

Click here to find out more about how you can enter to join us on a Ride Together ride-out and sign up to the email series. You'll receive a complimentary download of our Get Into Mountain Biking mini-mag when you register. The deadline to enter the prize-draw for our first group ride in Innerleithen, Scotland, is 11.59pm on Sunday 21 August 2022. Good luck!
