Night of the Knobbly Tread


Posted Monday 17th October 2011 –

If you’re looking for a bit of a change from the road bike then this weekend West Drayton Mountain Bike Club are promoting a night time mountain bike event called “Night of the Knobbly Tread” taking place on Saturday 22nd October at Black Park Country Park.

The event features two classes, open for those experienced in cross country racing and fun for those new to mountain biking and the exhilaration of racing in the dark. Start times are 7pm for the fun class and 7:50pm for the open event which will incorporate a veterans class, the racing at this popular venue is expected as always to produce close racing round the fast and tight circuit with the tracks in superb condition.

Generous sponsorship will see some good prizes given out, thanks to sponsorship from Beyond Mountain Bikes, Exposure and Payfones, with the men and women’s open winner taking home a rugged Land Rover mobile phone valued at £400 each.

Exposure are not only providing some prizes but will also be on site to give out advice on lights and also will be hiring out lights to those needing a bit more candle light.

Pre entry closes Wednesday night but entry on the day will available.

Online entry available at
