Private backcountry guided mountain bike rides

So you've ridden your local trails to death and perhaps visited a purpose built trailcentre or two? Perhaps it might be time to stray off the beaten track and have yourself a wilderness riding experience?

The National Parks of Great Britain are crisscrossed with networks of bridleways and forest trails which range in technical difficulty from the mild to the downright insane, but don't worry we'll match the difficulty to your skills and thirst for adrenaline.

Why hire a guide?

Our guided trailcentre days provide individuals or groups of MTB riders with the safety net of an experienced guide, qualified first aider and bike technician all rolled into one; to make sure your day goes off without a hitch.
