Mountain Bike Guiding

“We know the southern Lake District inside out. Let us lead you on a fantastic, fun filled off-road experience.”

“High Furness in the Lake District National Park is a stunning place to mountain bike. Great trails, forest tracks, lakes, mountains, open fells, fresh air and big grins!”


Our team of mountain bike guides have many years of mountain biking experience and having lived and ridden in this stunning part of the Lake District, they intimately know this area like no-one else. There is so much variety, so much space – real adventures on trails where you may never meet another soul other than sheep, deer or maybe an odd buzzard soaring overhead. There are fast descents for adrenalin junkies and uphill rocky climbs if that’s what you want. We will show you our ‘secret’ places and find the best places that everyone in your group can enjoy – all year round.  We have three categories of guided off-road adventure rides: Easy, Moderate & Challenging. Meet the Guides.

Guiding Plus Tuition

We also offer guiding plus tuition – great for improving your technique. With expert tuition from Ren, a European Champion and named as one of the top 100 women in cycling, you will reach new heights in your riding ability that you never thought possible. She also loves to help people at all levels, so if you have never ridden off-road before and want to learn how, then book Ren – you’re guaranteed to be hooked!

How to book?

As all these guided off-road rides are custom made to match you or your group’s experience and technical skills, you can choose any type of mountain bike including our extensive range of mountain E-bikes. These are all available for hire at additional cost, or you can bring your own bike if you wish.
