Downhill mountain biking (DH) is mountain biking practiced on steep, rough terrain that often features jumps, drops, rock gardens and other obstacles. It’s a technical, fun and satisfying to learn. While it has a reputation for being an extreme sport, with appropriate training anyone can get into DH.


To enjoy DH you’ll want a sturdy mountain bike, ideally with with plenty of travel in the suspension, and a very relaxed attitude. DH tends to be run on shorter courses over more extreme terrain, racing against the clock.


For all club DH events, you’ll need to meet safety standards – full face helmets, and full protective gear (shin guards, knee pads & a are back brace) are usually expected of all competitors. Be sensible and come prepared so you can enjoy your racing safely!
