Mountain biking on and around the hills is another popular pastime for both locals and visitors alike. From strenuous off-road hill climbs, fast free-wheeling descents and relatively leisurely sightseeing between villages on the flat, the area has something to offer most enthusiasts.
The Malvern Hills have also been the inspiration and training ground for some of the UK's top mountain biking sportsmen and women. For example, Malvern's Liam Killeen has won the British Mountain Biking National Championships in 2008, 2009 and 2010. He also represented England in the 2006 Commonwealth Games. And Malvern's Tracey Moseley is a Professional Downhill Mountain Biker racing for the Trek World Racing Team. She also has an impressive series of titles to her name, including winner of the World Championships in 2010.
There are a number of good resources to help you plan your trip. The Malvern Hills Conservators have prepared a cylcling code of conduct to help make sure the hills can be enjoyed by everyone, including ramblers, dog walkers, horse riders and cyclists.
If you are interested in recycling an old bike, Bricycles is a Community Interest Company in Malvern Link that can repair it and help to find it a new home.
