Introduction to Mountain Biking

Our introduction to mountain biking is designed for those who can ride a bike but are yet to venture from the roads and cycle paths.

Maybe sharing the roads with cars and buses stops you getting out on your bike as much as you’d like, or you just want to experience cycling in a new environment.

Our guided mountain bike rides provide a safe way to explore the great outdoors, on routes tailored to your ability and with the experience of a qualified mountain bike leader to guide and assist you.

Our introduction to mountain biking rides are run over half a day (3hrs) and we'll cover up to 15km depending on the group. 


Full day rides include a stop for lunch. Half days can be organised to finish with a pub lunch.
