Mountain Biking & Discovery Tours

"Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race." - H. G. Wells

A great man once said, those who interpret others are

                                                        seen as a fool by the masses and an even                                                 greater fool to their ofspring

Ru-looking for a biking adventure?

​​Navigation courses
We run numerous cycle navigation courses; whether you are a beginner or just wishing to build on your existing map reading knowledge, we can help you develop the skills necessary to navigate with confidence. Our range of courses can take you from learning under supervision, to 'flying solo' in poor visibility and at night in no time. Depending on the skill level you want to achieve, by tailoring courses to your needs our instructors can get you there.

Night Rides
Perhaps you’re more of a night owl and want to ride & navigate under the moon and stars. On a clear night you can see some 4,000 stars sparkling in our universe. The open skies across Dartmoor and South Devon provide magical locations for star gazing and wildlife spotting. Starting before dark we will have chance to ride during dusk, sunset and the night providing great opportunities to see local wildlife and test your riding abilities. Our night rides can be booked for 1-1 or group sessions and we will tailor our sessions to meet your needs.

Support Services 

We also offer a support service to those wanting to do a longer cycle journey but don’t want to carry all their equipment, or would like the reassurance of having a safety car trailing their route. We have two options to consider: either the vehicle meets at predefined points and times, or the vehicle trails behind you for the entire route. We offer our support services from as little as 2 hours to multi-day cycles, catering for all abilities. (Book here)
