Welcome to Trailrippers Project CIC!

After 6 months of grafting behind the scenes we are finally ready to present Trailrippers Project CIC, our social enterprise aiming to improve access to mountain biking for all. This website will be the platform where you can read updates on our projects, fundraising and race adventures.

So, what is Trailrippers Project? And what’s the CIC about?

We are Nathan and Ruben de Vaux, two young downhill mountain bikers. You may have seen us on our Instagram under the name “Trailrippers”, a name we chose 7 years ago when we started documenting our journey in the mountain biking. We’ve come a long way since!

Mountain Biking is an amazing sport, we are absolutely passionate about it because we get so much out of riding our bikes off-road. We don’t just ride but also love racing Downhill. Going down a gnarly track to get to the finish line as fast as we can is the best feeling ever!


Over the years we have realised that mountain biking is not the easiest sport to get into. It’s quite expensive and we’ve only come across a tiny handful of others who look like us. We wanted to use our platform and online reach to do something about that because we’d love to see more people enjoying mountain biking and we want to make a difference in our community. That’s how Trailrippers Project was born.

With Mum’s help we’ve created a Community Interest Company a not-for-profit company set up to benefit the community, hence the C.I.C. in our project name. This structure will help us reach the people we want to help as well as those who can support us in bringing about this change.

We invite you to have a look around our brand-new website to read more about what we do and how you could help. To launch Trailrippers Project we’ve partnered with Dyfi Bike Park for our first online Prize Draw: help us raise money and make a chance to win over £70 worth of Dyfi Bike Park merch as well as a £50 gift voucher. If you sign up to our newsletter you get an extra entry to the Prize Draw!

We are so excited to share Trailrippers Project with you. It’ll be an amazing ride and we’d love you to be part of it!

Nathan, Ruben and Ina
