Uptonogood? 2017 – Takes a brake
Dear riders, volunteers, sponsors, and suppliers,
The “Uptonogood?” Mountain Bike Festival has grown over the past seven years into the event we all love and enjoy immensely and we would like to thank you all for your support. Organising the event is quite a task however and this year it became clear we felt like a break. We have therefore taken the decision not to run the event in 2017.
We know this will come as a disappointment to many, but remember the trails are there every day of the year and free to explore at your leisure. Keep riding, and we’ll see you again on our return.
All the best,
Bob Lott & Mike Tibbetts

Uptonogood? is a mountain bike event and live music festival for experienced riders and novice families alike. Run by volunteers from Upton village and the local mountain bike fraternity, it is a fundraising event for local projects and causes, offering exhilarating rides, fine food and drink, and a great mix of live music!
Almost entirely off-road, the cycle routes wind their way through the beautiful North Wessex Downs, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty encompassing the Ridgeway and surrounding bridleways.
Uptonogood? now offers five routes devised to cater for all ages and abilities:
- 5 mile Little Wheels ride
- 12 mile Family ride
- 18 mile Teen Spirit ride
- 25 mile Leisure ride
- 35 mile Endurance ride
All the rides start and finish in Upton village where besides the cycling there will be fun and frolics for all the family, including beer tent, BBQ, tea/coffee and cakes, pump track, adventure playground, and raffle with some great prizes. There will also be a great selection for live music throughout the afternoon. Click on the images below for a preview.
Camping is available from 6pm Friday and Saturday nights, so take advantage of all we have to offer (including hot showers) and make a great weekend of it.
Please note that Uptonogood? is not a race event and times/places will not be published in line with advice from the Police. Clocks on the finish line will allow you to note your own time as with previous years.
