Holiday Information

Based in the Northern Lake District village of Portinscale, with a view right across Derwent Water to Skiddaw, we can cycle from the door of our accommodation, through Keswick and then onto the longest single stretch of bridleway in the UK. Our journey has us winding along ancient mining tracks, leading to the classic cheeky climb of Whitewater Dash. There are stunning views of the Northern Lakes throughout and routes brimming with technical challenges, yet not too daunting as the guides will help those with less technical off-road experience.  These are classic 'must do' mountain bike routes, well known by keen mountain bikers from the area.
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!
These fun weekends are fully guided by experienced biking guides and fully supported with a vehicle and driver. 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.
And of course, if our dates don't fit, we can put on your own special weekend if there are a group of you!
