Mountain biking reacts to the Brexit

People ain't happy

The EU was great for British mountain biking, it allowed us easy access to Europe’s finest riding, it meant we could buy in cheap parts and bikes from the continent and it funded our most beloved trails… but the country has spoken and Britain will be going solo in the near future.

The mountain biking world has taken to social media today to react to the Brexit. Here are our picks:

Our view

Sorry Europe, it's not our fault that just over half of our population (insert expletives) voted out. We love you.

Just go and ride

Most people just had one thing to say though. Whether you’re a Brexiteer or not, we can still all be united on the trails.
