Kendal Cycle Club has come a long way in its first year. Our AGM is open to all members. It’s an opportunity to find out about the club’s achievements to date and aims and aspirations for the coming years. There will be a Q&A session for members to discuss ideas with the committee.

If you’re not able to make the AGM then please join us afterwards for our film night. The film is – Mountain Biking: the untold British story. Mountain biking is now in it’s 4th decade and it’s come a long way from it’s beginnings in the hills of the West Coast USA. But that’s only part of the story. The UK MTB scene grew in parallel to the well told US tale and this documentary, co-produced with singletrack magazine and BAFTA award winning film-maker Michael Clifford, aims to layout the complete and unique history of how the MTB developed in British mud.

Through archive footage of early XC racing through to the modern adrenaline fueled disciplines of Enduro, this film will layout the British claim to the origins of the modern mountain bike scene. Featuring interviews with legendary names such as Tracy Moseley, Steve Peat, Dan Gee and Rachel Atherton, Martyn Ashton, Rob Warner, Gary Fisher, Jason Miles, Geoff Apps, Carlton Reid and many more, this will be the story of how the Brits have carved their names into history and helped shape the global phenomenon that is mountain biking.
