We understand that everybody is different. Some riders will want to push hard, others will want to take in the views and learn about the surrounding area and cultures. All of our guides are selected not only for their fitness but also for their local knowledge. The passion for mountain biking, fun loving nature and local connections, that all our guides have, ensure that your adventure will be an incredible journey.
We know how important it is to remain properly fuelled during an arduous day in the saddle and so have teamed up with TorqFitness to provide all our adventures with a selection of energy products. During the day and in the evenings riders will be provided with energy drink powder, gels, bars and recovery drinks. Riders will also be provided with local fare during the day including available fruits and local delicacies.
The nature of your holiday is to have an adventure, but that doesn’t mean you have to rough it. For all of our adventures we use the best accommodation that is available in the area. All our hotels / guesthouses have been personally vetted, so whether it’s a 3* hotel in the city or a basic teahouse in the mountains you can rest assured you will be warm, comfortable and well fed.
Each group will have at least 2 riding guides, that way if any riders want to push on and “race” the stage, the remainder of the group will still have an accompanying guide. Each group (where terrain allows) will also be closely accompanied by a support vehicle, carrying water, food, bike spares etc, with space to transport any rider to the hotel should the going get too tough. All our guides are mechanically adept and will be able to fix most bike problems out on the trail. There will also be a separate vehicle and guide to transport all the luggage and to ensure your hotel / guesthouse is ready for your arrival after a hard days riding.
