The Mountain Bike Association of Dublin (MAD) put together this cool highlights of their 2019 ride outs – looks like it was a great 30th anniversary for them!
MAD MTB is Ireland’s longest-running and largest mountain bike club. Founded in 1989 with just a handful of members focused mainly on cross-country cycling, the club has grown to now include more than 150 members across multiple MTB disciplines including XC, Enduro, Downhill and Cyclocross.
MAD is actively involved in running national XC races, Enduro races, and other prominent events on the Irish mountain biking calendar.
Club members range from those who ride simply for fun, to first-time racers, to riders competing successfully nationally and internationally.
Their club forum is an active hub for members and non-members alike, with general discussion, technical talk, racing and a bustling buy and sell section.
Membership provides forum access to all club activities including all spins, trail-building days and social events. Active participation is encouraged and any member can post a new event, be it a spin, dig-day or social.
Membership benefits also include club discounts to a range of businesses, cycling and non-cycling related.
A couple of times each year trips to far off and exotic mountain biking destinations, and some not so far off, and still somewhat exotic locations are organised.
