This is a 5 day trip that will be designed around the development of the group. You will ideally have attended our mountain biking course before going on this trip - if you have not we will need to arrange a ride out with our staff to assess your skills before going.
We plan to leave the island on the ferry on Friday the 3rd, giving us 4 full days of riding before returning on Tuesday the 7th. We will be staying at a camping barn close to mountain biking areas to make the most of our time away.
Our courses are run within the guidelines of Scottish Mountain Bike Leaders Association. The course leaders are qualified and have a wealth of knowledge about mountain biking in the Lake District. Your safety is always paramount.
