Uptonogood? Rides Again on Saturday 15th June 2019. Entries are OPEN!
This year we’re looking to recapture the simplicity of the early years. To this end live music will be hosted in the “Party Tent” for a more intimate experience. The cycling remains untouched, so we hope you will enjoy the return of Uptonogood? in 2019.
Uptonogood? is a mountain bike event 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 selection for live music from local artists throughout the afternoon.
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 is not a race event and times/places will not be published in line with advice from the Police.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. Note also that in order to reduce our admin and liabilities, we will no longer cater for campers or showers on the rec ground.
This year we have a fantastic holiday in the South of France to win, courtesy of Liz Green and her new venture. She’s kindly offering a weeks stay at Le Castelet-Arzeliers for either a couple or family of four. The riding potential is fantastic but there is more to the area than just cycling.
