Mountain Biking provides a great mixture of thrill, skill and challenge. We have a fleet of adult specialist Cannondale all-terrain mountain bikes, which are better suited to the challenging conditions of off-road cycling. We also hire in bikes for smaller adults and junior groups or given an inspection, we are happy for you to bring your own.
With transport and a specialist bike trailer, cycling takes place at a variety of venues across Devon.
For those building confidence or wanting a leisurely ride, the Centre is perfectly located with the National Cycle Network running right past its back door. Routes offer picturesque rides along the Exe Cycle Trail, either heading south west as far as Dawlish or south east as far as Exmouth. We also venture out to the Granite Way a truly spectacular and mostly traffic free cycle route between Lydford and Okehampton, passing through rural Devon with fantastic views of Dartmoor and the surrounding countryside.
For those looking to venture off-road, we utilise equally as picturesque venues such as Haldon, which is described by British Cycling as Devon’s most complete and well packaged mountain biking experience in a forest setting. Here there is a trail for every ability level whether a young family or a seasoned downhiller. Other venues include: Dartmoor, Exmoor & Woodbury Common, as well as other outstanding areas of the South West.
Taster or one off sessions and progressive programmes can be tailored to suit all ages and abilities with the option to include leadership, tuition, skills and challenges, guaranteed to fully engage any group.
If you are looking for accreditation we can offer this via MIAS (Mountain-Bike Instructors Award Scheme). Skills qualifications and accreditation for young people include MIAS Gears Awards, a structured practical programme of 6 skill levels and for those wishing to progress to leadership qualifications we also offer MIAS Mountain Bike Leader Awards at Level One and Level 2.
The off-road terrain offers an exhilarating experience for all ages whether in a small and larger group.
