Mountain Biking

Guided Rides | Skills Tuition | Taster Sessions | Weekend Packages | Bike Hire | Bikes for Sale

With one of the world class 7stanes mountain biking trails running right next to the centre, mountain biking is an important part of what we do. We can take you through your paces from beginners on taster sessions to experienced bikers wanting to improve their technique. We run taster sessions, full day guided rides and coaching sessions or you can hire bikes and take the trail at your own pace.
