Holiday Information

This great mountain bike holiday in the UK has been specially designed for those starting out biking off-road. We offer advice and instruction on riding techniques on a variety of carefully selected tracks and trails in a relaxed and informative atmosphere. If you are looking to build confidence, get some advice on biking techniques and have a fun weekend of gentle mountain biking, then this is just the ticket!
We will be conducting some easy drills and practice sessions that will help you feel more comfortable on your bike and make sure that your braking, climbing, descending and use of gears is all correct and prevent you learning any bad habits! We'll then put this into practice as you explore some wonderful riding through the Northern Lake District close to Penrith.
Our routes take us to the foot of the Pennines, through the Eden Valley and around Lowther Castle and Helton Fell. Using bridleways and forest tracks which are gently undulating, you will enjoy stunning views as you ride along the open fells in what is one of the most picturesque parts of the Northern Lake District.
The weekend is ideally suited to regular cyclists starting to venture off-road or outdoors people taking up mountain biking. Good basic fitness is recommended to get the most out of the experience.
If you’ve found out how much fun you can have on a mountain bike on your local trails, then it’s time you headed to the ‘real’ outdoors and join us in a different part of the UK. All weekends are fully guided with MIAS qualified biking guides and fully supported with a vehicle and driver too. With hearty breakfasts and lush lunches the order of the day, all you need to decide is what to have as your evening meal and which local ale you’ll be sampling.
For groups of friends, clubs or organisations; if our dates don't fit we can put on your own special weekend for you!
