Why Hire a Mountain Bike Guide?

With such a vast expanse of wilderness to explore in The Lake District, the prospect of venturing into it alone can be daunting. The worry of getting lost, caught out by the weather, or just missing the best trails, can ruin your whole experience, which is why so many riders visiting the area, opt to hire a guide.

Bespoke Mountain Bike Rides

Whether you’re new to mountain biking, or just new to the area, we’ll tailor routes to meet your specific objectives, and provide you with a truly unforgettable experience.

You don’t need your own mountain bike in order to participate in one of our guided rides. We are able to offer our clients a discounted rate on a range of quality hardtail, full suspension and electric bikes from Biketreks Grizedale. Click here for further details.


Cat Hart

Cat is a Girl with a Singletrack Mind, who immerses herself in mountain biking 24/7. When not guiding riders around the best trails in the Lake District, you’ll find her exploring lesser-known routes, training for enduro races or writing articles about mountain biking for her blog.



Dan Leadbetter

Having grown up hopping around the streets of Liverpool on a trials bike, Dan is now pretty handy on a mountain bike. More interested in style than speed, he’s renowned locally for making the “unrideable” look easy, and features regularly in the productions of local filmmaker, HDDN Media.
