Mountain Biking

For mountain bike guiding check out

Peak District Mountain Bike Guiding offer mountain bike guiding across the bridleways of the Peak District led by MIAS Level Two qualified instructors with over 15 years mountain biking experience across Europe. We can offer one day’s guiding, a full weekend, or even a whole week’s holiday of riding from the door of your accommodation. The Peak District is home to superb mountain biking terrain. If daring technical descents, flowing and swoopy singletrack, fast and furious rocky bridleways and challenging yet rewarding climbs get your adrenaline pumping then the Peak District’s for you. We know these trails like the back of our hands, so instead of wasting time wrestling with an OS Map let us tailor a route to suit you. We’ll take into account the expected weather conditions, your abilities and fitness plus your riding preferences and plan an absolute gem of a route.
