Guided Rides

For anyone staying at Quarry Cottage, or in the area, and would like a guided ride, we can tailor rides to suit your age and ability - from families to groups (large or small) and hardcore riders !

You don’t need a Guide to have a good mountain bike ride on Exmoor, but for a great ride, and to ride more off-piste trails, why not hire a guide?

Ride out from your base; or meet out on Exmoor and we’ll give you a lift back to your car for FREE!

Bike hire can be arranged with advance bookings.

Family price (must be at least 1 under 16 riding, and one 18+.  Max 8 riders): £50 for 2 hour ride

Small group (max 3, all age 18+):

2.5 hours £54
5 hours £78

Large Group (min 4 max 8, all age 18+):

2.5 hours £16 per person
5 hours £24 per person

If you would like to book, or if you have any questions or queries, you can call us on 01643 863351, message us on facebook, or create an enquiry

We look forward to riding with you! 

Here are just a few reasons why having a guide will make your next mountain bike ride unforgettable:

1. We keep things flowing – Think of us as a sat nav, but with more intelligence, and hopefully more personality too! We know exactly where you need to go, and can brief you along the way as to where and when to take a turn, or features and obstacles to look out for. You’ll not need to stop to check a map or read a paragraph of text to know you’re where you need to be – you can just concentrate on your ride.

2. We know the best routes – There are hundreds of trails on Exmoor, but a guide will be able to link them up to ensure you get the best descents and ascents (yes there’s fun to be had there too) for the weather conditions, and groups’ ability. Plus, your guide will make sure your ride is memorable, with good views and places of interest, like a river to cool off in on a hot day, or a hidden shelter on the moors to stop in for a break.

3. We have you covered – your guide will be carrying everything you should need, and will have good trail side repair skills. So, if you find you’ve forgotten your pump, inner tube or even your water, your guide will be able to come to your rescue. And as for those mechanicals, don’t worry, if you’re not up to fixing it yourself, or perhaps just to posh to pump, your guide will be more than happy to step in.

4. We get you back safety – as a qualified Outdoor First Aider you’re in safe hands with a guide, but your guide also knows the alternative routes should you need to change the route for any reason, such as a mechanical failure, unexpected weather, or even fatigue usually brought on by a heavy night before – I’m sure we’ve all been there!
