New Weekend Mountain Biking Breaks

Spring has now sprung and, as the trails finally start to dry out a little, perhaps it's time to think about getting out and enjoying some mountain bike thrills and beautiful scenery as summer advances.

With this in mind we're delighted to announce two new ways to enjoy what we have to offer at our Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty venues. From April onwards we are now offering two brand new weekend breaks in the South-East .

Our new Discover Mountain Biking Weekend is aimed at people who want to have a first taste of riding off-road, while our Surrey Hills Explorer Weekend is for more experienced riders looking to try the delights of the cross country and technical singletrack trails that make the area so popular amongst mountain bikers.

Also this month we have some great last minute Mother's Day ideas (it's on Sunday by the way) and news of a competition to win some fantastic free places on our courses over with our friends at Singletrack World.

See you out on the trails.

Guided Mountain Bike Weekends in The Surrey Hills
Join us in the beautiful Surrey Hills for a brilliant mountain bike adventure

Our two new weekend breaks are ideal for getting away from it all and enjoying some of the finest natural scenery in the South-East whilst riding some of the best off-road trails you'll find in England. We'll also put you up in an excellent 4-star hotel so you can put your feet up properly after a day out on the trails.

Of course, if you're looking for more of a coaching orientated weekend, don't forget we also offer a wide range of two day coaching courses too.

 

Discover Mountain Biking Weekend
The perfect introduction to mountain biking over three relaxed days

If you're new to the sport of mountain biking, but relatively fit and raring to go, why not come down to the beautiful Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and receive a three day taster of what mountain biking is all about.

On Friday we start with a half day skills coaching session to get you riding safely and confidently on off-road tracks before we move on to trying some easy technical trails in the afternoon.

Then on Saturday and Sunday we'll take in a couple of fairly leisurely full day cross country rides in The Surrey Hills and North Downs sampling some of the best cross country riding in the South-East; all the time under the watchful eye of your fully qualified local guide.

On Friday & Saturday night we'll treat you to a night in a 4-Star hotel with slap-up breakfasts included to get you going on day two and three.

Includes three days of coaching and guiding and two nights 4-star accommodation for £240 per person*

*Available without accommodation for £160 per person

Last Minute Mother's Day Ideas
Send Mum for a wonderful day of skills coaching and riding on Mother's Day

If you're stuck for a last minute Mother's day present, we've got a bunch of ideas that'll keep you sweet with Mum for another year.

Finally, if she's really special and mad about mountain biking, why not sign her up to Switchback Club? It's like an outdoor mountain biking gym membership.

We've laid on a special women only Singletrack Skills 1 - The Fundamentals courses especially to coincide with Mother's Day. Places are going fast, so why not give us a call and treat mum to the gift of off-road skills and confidence this year?
