Established in March 2004, MTBLeeds is Leeds’s longest established mountain biking website. A source of current news and trail information for riders in and around Leeds.
A brief bit about our history; Way back in 2004, we set the site up as somewhere for us to blog our antics, write up race reports, post up photos, videos and trail information.
As the site grew, so did our following, regular rides organised, races, dig days and trips to the Alps. For a long time we had thriving forum community. As with many small forums, unfortunately Facebook seemed to kill it off, a real shame with 412 members, 1524 topics and 15831 posts on closing down in 2012.
It’s all gone very quiet since then, but were still here! A few stragglers from the original gang riding regularly, still getting out on the bikes together from time to time!
Who Am I? I’m Ell, proud founder of MTBLeeds, refusing to give up on it! Been riding Mountain Bikes for as long as I can remember, still a regular on the trails around Leeds and hope to see you out and about at some point soon!
And a shout out to our web host hartserver.net , looking after us since the beginning back in 2004. Thanks guys!
