Care and Support
We believe in caring for the areas and the communities we ride our bikes through and the people that ride with us. For this reason we work with a maximum of 8 clients in a group*, this reduces our impact on the environment and the local resources; it also means that we can offer you a more personal service. To support local communities we also believe in using facilities and services owned by local people.
*For groups larger than 8, please contact us to discuss option of additional leaders, instructors or guides. For British Cycling MTB Leadership training maximum ratio of 1:6.
We only use instructors and leaders qualified through the British Cycling & MBLA Mountain Bike Leadership award schemes, ensuring that you can expect a quality service from our leaders. Our staff can lead, guide and train Mountain Bikers of all abilities and we are registered providers running leadership training and assessments in the Mountain Bike Leadership Awards, for those aspiring Mountain Bike Leaders.
We have experience of working with many different groups including schools, youth groups, adult learning groups, groups with disabilities and many more.
