OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOUNGER AGES

Children should be active! MBSC is working towards its aim so there are more and safer cycle paths and roads out there to get together and where children get to know the importance of

  • responsible and safe cycling
  • discovering their talents
  • developing themselves
  • keeping active and healthy
  • exploring and adventuring

These are valuable experiences that they carry with them as they develop physically and mentally, and as they actively move into society with responsible parents and adult members.

Our goal is to develop the cycling prospect in Hungary, and the efforts are being aimed at the younger and rising generations.

“MOVE!”
Active Lifestyle Program

Along with MOVE, we have supported employees of local businesses in the region.

The main goal is to increase the number of people who are actively involved in physical activity programs and promote the concept of health-enhancing physical activity.

The program has the intention that participating people become role models for their community and remain involved and connected to activities for the long-term.

The program endeavours to improve the general health and well-being of people.

NATIONAL AFFILIATES

We are proud to be part of two national organizations:

It is a member of the Hungarian National EuroVelo Coordination Centre consortium. It is a must for access to some of their events and for race licences if we intend to compete, but also offers a range of ways to get involved in cycling for non-members or those not looking for club activity.

Disciplines

4 cycling disciplines

ROAD

Cycling on paved roads. Road bikes are more lightweight, the tires are narrow and inflated at high pressures. Always choose a road bike that fits your needs and body size. A good bike fit increases performance, speed and comfort.

We are here to help!

MOUNTAIN

Mountain biking is a cycling discipline taking part on specially equippped bicycles for the off-road, including mountainous areas. Mountain bikes are easily distinguished from normal bikes. The most notable differences are the "fat", knobby tires, providing more off-road grip, and the straight, or flat, handlebars, making it easier to climb.

(Historical Dictionary of Cycling by Bill Mallon, Jeroen Heijmans)

CYCLOCROSS (CX)

The bicycles used in cyclocross are similar to those on the road but with several adaptations. Since speeds are much lower, the bikes usually have fewer and smaller gears. Since the obstacles require a bike to be carried, a lightweight material is preferred for the frame. Cyclocross bikes are also adjusted to make sure mud and sand will not clog up in the brakes or gears. The tires can be different; both tubular and knobby tires are commonly used.

(Historical Dictionary of Cycling by Bill Mallon, Jeroen Heijmans)

LEISURE & RECREATION

Cycling is becoming more popular and more recreational. We are working towards our aim to have more and safer cycling paths in the area, and to get more people using bikes. It's one of our most popular cycling disciplines with endless possibilities in the Mátra Mountains and also in the country.

We welcome all abilities!

This discipline is totally free! Join us now!
