Hit the North 7

(photos courtesy of Adam Rowlinson, Michael Silver, Oliver Colam and me) I agonised all week about whether I should allow Hit the North to go ahead or whether I should postpone it due to the coronavirus thing, but in the … Continue reading →

Ragley 2020 range

After a successful reboot of the range last year, we are back with another no-nonsense range of bikes for 2020. With every model receiving praise and awards across the board last year, each bike has subtle tweaks to keep them up to date and on the money. All our mountain bikes now roll on Maxxis […]

Strathpuffer 2020

For the first few hours of the Strathpuffer, I couldn’t quite put my finger on what was missing. There was something absent – was it a section of the course? Was it something I’d forgotten to bring? Was it a … Continue reading →

10@Kirroughtree 2019

The 10@Kiroughtree (known locally as “the ten”) is a lapped MTB endurance race on one of the most brilliant courses I’ve ridden. Yeah yeah, I know I’m a local boy now and therefore I’m bound to be biased, but after … Continue reading →…

The Pan Celtic Race 2019

Even though the ferry crossing from Cairnryan to Befast is only a couple of hours long, I happily paid 26 quid for a cabin just for a shower and a chance to lie down on something comfortable. While the idea … Continue reading →

Glentress 7 2019

It didn’t matter how much shouting and swearing I was aiming at the stubborn tyre valve, it wouldn’t shift. The minutes ticked by. Sally stopped and offered to help, but unless King Kong or someone with a large plumbing wrench … Continue reading …

Marley 2.0 in Hardtail of the year test

MBR Magazine’s Hardtail of the Year test scores the Marley 2.0 a 9/10. The Marley won Hardtail of the Year back in 2016. Three years later our new Marley has returned and it’s longer and slacker. The Rasta-themed Marley will happily smoke through…

Kirroughtree Hillbilly Duathlon 2019

I was hoping that my strategy of simply not doing this year’s Kirroughtree duathlon as a solo participant would amount to a more pleasant experience than last time. It couldn’t be much worse than last year’s hellish cramp-fest. I suppose … Contin…

10 Under the Ben 2019

After our pairs win at the Strathpuffer, Sofia and I decided that we’d take the Christiansen/Miles Steamroller to Fort William for a crack at 10 Under the Ben. Just 5 hours each. How hard could it be? Thanks to the … Continue reading →

Ragley to sponsor hardtail category in Scottish Enduro Series

We are pleased to announce that we’ll be sponsoring the hardtail category in this year’s @scottishenduro series. With a whole new range of bikes and frames available, it seemed like the perfect time to partner with the premier enduro series that’s had a dedicated hardtail category since its inception.⠀ ⠀ With their sixth season kicking […]

Ragley 2020 range

After a successful reboot of the range last year, we are back with another no-nonsense range of bikes for 2020. With every model receiving praise and awards across the board last year, each bike has subtle tweaks to keep them up to date and on the money.

All our mountain bikes now roll on Maxxis EXO+ tubeless ready tyres and all bikes have tubeless tape installed and valves supplied in the box. We have even fitted 170mm dropper posts on our XL sized bikes where one is fitted.

Blue Pig
Our Blue Pig has long been a favourite for hardcore hardtail lovers. Ride it in the woods, on your local singletrack, or in the mountains, the Blue Pig will take it all in its stride and longs to be ridden hard and fast. Offering the same modern geometry benefits as some of its boutique brand peers but at a more affordable price point.
The new Race spec version offers the best performance of any Ragley to date. A longer 160mm RockShox Lyrik keeps you on line, and Shimano SLX 12 speed gearing and 4-pot brakes take care of the speed. This bike has been built to take you straight to the start line of your local enduro race!

Big Wig
Long, low and slack may have become cliché, but the Big Wig was long and slack when everyone else was still coming round to the idea of leaving 26” wheels behind. As at home in the trail centre as it is on a mountain epic or enduro stage the Big Wig brings the party and promises to put a smile on your face.
Just like the Blue Pig Race, our new Big Wig Race spec takes things up a gear. Travel gets bumps up to 150mm thanks to the RockShox Lyrik fork and Shimano takes care of both shifting and braking duties with the new SLX 12 speed drivetrain and 4-pot brakes. Add a truly stunning chameleon paint scheme and you have a bike that cannot fail to impress!

Piglet
If the Blue Pig sounds too much for your favourite trails perhaps the Piglet is the bike for you? Built around a shorter travel 130mm fork and to be a little more responsive on the trails its possibly the perfect all-rounder.
Our 2020 bike gets a vivid pink to black paint job, a wider range cassette in the form of a 12 speed Sram NX Eagle groupset, and the Sun Ringlé Duroc wheels shod in 2.6” Maxxis Minions front and back offer loads of grip in any situation.

Big Al
The Big Al is proof that with the right geometry even an affordable alloy framed bike can be an absolute hoot to ride. It shouldn’t be a surprise considering it shares the same geometry as the steel Big Wig. Built around a lighter alloy frame with a carefully curated selection of components to give the most bang for your buck.
This year Shimano handles the stopping duties and the cassette grows to an 11-46t option making getting back to the top of the hill a breeze!

Mmmbop
The Mmmbop is the Blue Pig’s alloy framed counterpart and shares the same wheel size, fork travel and geometry. It has the same hard-hitting character but a lighter alloy frame and cost sensitive build. Don’t be fooled into thinking it’s any less capable though.
This year the purple Mmmbop has a RockShox Sektor 150mm fork and a wider 12 speed Sram SX groupset, meaning the Mmmbop can keep up with the best of them.

Marley
“If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” The Marley has proven itself time and again by landing numerous awards and accolades in its current form, so there was little to change for the 2020 iteration of this modern classic.

Marley frame UK RRP £299.99

Trig
Whether you need a bike to get you to the middle of nowhere, or nowhere in particular, the Trig is as versatile as they come. A modern gravel bike in every sense, just choose your preferred wheel size and head outside.
Our 2020 Trig gets a massive upgrade with a full carbon fork complete with multiple cage and rack mounts.

Ragley Demo fleet to appear at Hit The North

We’re delighted to announce our demo fleet will be taken along to join in the fun at this February’s Hit the North 2.5 Race. Team JMC/Ragley riders, Dave and Jason will be whipping around the course on their TD-1s and will (probably) be delighted to talk about their bikes. What’s Hit the North I’ve been […]

The Color Purple

A return visit to the northern Lakes has been on the cards for a while. And today was the perfect day.  Pour yourself a cuppa and open the nobnobs - there's a few photos coming up! We parked at the back of the church hall in Threlkeld, with a promise of tea and cakes...

High Street

No - not shopping - that hill in the Lakes! There's more than one way to the High Street, this time we're coming from the south. It all starts easily enough, just a few kilometres of tick infested bracken to contend with. The route takes us past Dubbs Reservoir, where...

Mary Towneley

We've a lot to thank her for. Following her unstinting efforts to improve access for horses, we have the loop running from our doorstep around the southern Pennines. Sadly, she didn't make it to the opening - but it's some memorial! It's twelve weeks since I was...

Lee Quarry

I know you've all been clamouring for a shot of Shaman's arse, so here it is! Just like the old days! This is up on the moor, between Brittania and Lee Quarries. It's just above Bacup - a place that makes me feel a little nervous. Did you know that all the Bacup...

New kid in town

It's always nice when someone shows you their local trails. And it's always nice to show someone your local trails. But which is best?  There's only one way to find out!  Fight! I digress.  The Sleeve brought his chum round on Saturday and there's only one place to...

The Training Ride

We all have one don't we?  The route from the back door that has no excuse, no cause for prevarication, no reason not to ride.  Hard enough to make your heart bang, tricky enough to remind yourself what the word technical means, long enough to give you a glow of smug...

Holcombe 8

I never fancy going out when it's cold. But once I'm out - it's usually worth it.And it was pretty cold this morning - around -2 according to our thermometer. I was toasty on the climb up to the tower, but once on the top you could feel the chill in the air. But there...

Xmas Garburn

You need to get out at Christmas.  Escape from the routine of slothfulness and gluttony and blow the cobwebs away. Where better than the Lakes? The forecast was good and the reality even better.  Bright sunshine from a sun at a blindingly low angle leaving a pattern...

Building a website has never been so fun.
