We provide up to six Honda CRF250Ls, which are ideal for your first trail riding experience, and a Honda CRF230 which is a little smaller and lighter. The 250Ls are at home on tarmac or trail. Most of our rides are trail tours, but if you prefer to stay on tarmac, please ask or phone 01686 430522.
To hire one of our bikes you need to hold a full motorcycle licence and be 22 or older. We provide clothing free of charge, so all you need to bring is a drink, spare socks, a little cash for your lunch at a cafe, and some chocolate in case you need an energy boost! Our normal day is from 9.30am to 5.30pm. If you book two days, the routes on the second day will be different. If you are new to motorcycling or not used to riding for long periods, we are happy to plan a day especially for you.
I’m an Experienced Road Rider but Have Never Been Trail Riding – What Can I Expect?
Your day starts with a few miles on minor tarmac road which allows you to settle in and get used to the bike. First you will encounter gravel, then some stones, rocks and mud. We will give you information on suitable techniques, and make sure you are happy with the surfaces you are riding. The route is progressive, and can be altered to suit you. Our days include hills up and down with hairpin bends, rock slabs, loose stones, grass, muddy ruts, streams and puddles. Many riders are surprised at how strenuous it is! If you think you may find it tiring or prefer a route which leaves out the riskier elements, please ask for the "gentle" option.
We specialise in making sure the routes suit you best, and keep our groups small. If you are a single rider or small group, we will do our best to match you with riders who will progress at a similar rate. We never put experienced trail or offroad riders with riders who are new to green laning. If you would like one-to-one or an exclusive day for two or three riders, please ask for a mid week date.
Please don’t say you or your friends are experienced if you are not familiar with riding in a standing position. If the route is too difficult it just leads to crashes and injuries, with lots of delays and it is not enjoyable if you are struggling.
"Thanks to you all for an awesome days trail riding. Special thanks to Colin and Lucie for taking two newbies from never riding trail bikes to be relatively confident on the bikes due to their excellent tuition. I am to be a repeat customer in the future. All that's left to say is that it was an absolute blast!!"

I’m Not Sure I’m Ready For This!
Trail riding is hard work compared with road riding. Wet days when the lanes are slippery can be difficult. Our "gentle" option uses single width tarmac lanes and the less demanding green lanes. We are also happy to take you on a tarmac lane tour, with amazing views, steep hills, twisty bends, and a good cafe for lunch! For either of these options please email or phone Marianne on 01686 430522 or 07849 760722.
During November, December, January and February when the daylight is short, we offer a compact day with less tarmac road, meeting at 11am to allow any overnight frost to disappear. Finish is at dusk or about 4pm. Although most people start with one or two days, we can offer longer courses by arrangement.
As non essential travel is being discouraged, we are closed for the next few weeks. I will keep this page updated when things change. If you want to reserve a date in late April, May or June, we will hold the date provisionally without the need for you to pay a deposit.
Booking can be by email or phone 01686 430522 or 079849 760722. Please give the names of the people in your group and the date(s) you wish to come.
For our requests and requirements, please see our terms and conditions.
