TORQ HQ is located in Shropshire for good reason; with our roots as a company firmly entrenched in Mountain Biking, one of the original reasons for locating TORQ here was some of the fantastic riding available straight out the front door...
Here at TORQ we have recently signed up to fuelling a new 48km Mass start Mountain Bike Challenge, taking place on Saturday 11th May from Norbury School, near Bishops Castle, called the “Batch Burner”. The event will be a showcase of some of the best riding on offer in Shropshire so, for anyone who hasn’t ever ridden the trails here before or just fancies a great day in the saddle, get yourself signed up here. https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/events/details/86001/LongMynd-Batch-Burner#summary
