We work closely with many schools and youth organisations, as well as deliver group cycling activities for personal and corporate days out, either self-led or with guides. Over the years we have developed a fantastic working relationship with schools. Key benefits include:

  • A fun day out for pupils whilst promoting a good healthy lifestyle
  • Helping children and young people engage with the outdoors
  • Develop teamwork skills and resilience with overcoming obstacles
  • We have great traffic free, dedicated, all weather Mountain bike trails for maximum enjoyment
  • Easy booking because we know you’re busy
  • With over 10 years experience and thousands of sessions under our belt, you can be sure that we know what we’re doing!
  • Hire bikes are available at a discounted rate to help keep it simple and because we understand that budgets can be tight
  • Free minibus and coach parking if as a school, you pre-book and use guides
  • PLUS possibility of increased Ofsted results, which can boost your schools status
