Our guiding days are ideal for stag and hen parties, corporate teams, school groups, adventurous individuals, family groups, cycle clubs, and riders that just want to venture out to a new area without the hassle of route planning or the risk of getting lost.

We cater for riders of all abilities and can accommodate groups of any size (as long as we’ve got enough notice).

Whatever you’d like to do, we’re more than happy to cook up a special route from a gentle half day ride taking in great views and trying local cafe’s, to multi day epic adventures searching for the sweetest singleltrack or the rockiest descents in the area.

There are so many options for great riding in the Lake District it can be difficult to choose where to go first!


We will happily suggest a spot that has the kind of riding or terrain you’re looking for, and we’re always happy to go a little further a field if you’re looking for something that’s not on our regular menu.

We generally base our guiding days around Grizedale Forest, Coniston, Ambleside, or Staveley + Kentmere, as these places give us access to some of the best riding and hospitality (that means the best pubs) in The Lakes.

Guiding prices start from £40 for a place on a group day. We offer private and one to one sessions from £75 for a half day and £125 for a full day.

Our Big Lake District Weekender’s offer two fantastic group guiding days based in the same area. We try and offer 2 quite different riding experiences so everyone is catered for. There is generally an easier day and a tough day giving you the option to just book on one ride if you’re not sure about doing both. On group days we always ride at a steady pace and like a nice relaxed atmosphere, so if you like to race and clock up as many miles as possible it’s best to book a private day!

Please contact us if you’d like to enquire or book a guiding session, big day out or weekender.
