Reframing MTB Symposium

01 Mar 2024 - 02 Mar 2024

Following a successful event in 2022, the second Reframing Mountain Biking Symposium is set to take place 1 - 2 March. 

The event aims to collectively address how to progress mountain biking in the UK past some of the challenges that currently exist and make the sport a better, safer, more sustainable and fun space for all. 

Bringing together community leaders to the wider industry, mountain bike trail associations, organisations, bike brands, media, NGO’s, land-owners and managers, guides, researchers and ambassadors - everyone is welcome to take discussion into action!

Expect another varied two-day programme of events, both inside and outside, with workshops, talks, skills sessions, brand demos, trail work and rides - see the event programme below.
