What makes Torridon so good? We’re often asked what it is that draws us back to Torridon time and time again – we actually spent more evenings there than in Wales in summer 2017! So here goes… Landscape Torridon is one of those rare places where the mountains rise straight out of the sea. Jagged…
“By far the most beautiful place I have been mountain biking. Really good organised and superb guiding. Thanks a lot for this awesome week!” Jeroen Hoek, Holland

Is this trip for me?:
We try to run relaxed trips where everybody pulls together – it’s a team effort. But this is big country and there are always some big ups (including a fair bit of pushing), some long days, and some technical downs. A sense of humour is often required. The trips also involve riding 6 days back to back, although it’s possible to take voluntary rest days if needed.
Technical: You are happy on the Red trails and you’ll have a go on the odd Black section – even if you walk some.
Fitness: You’ll give all the climbs a go and can ride for a good, solid half day (at least 4 hrs actual riding time – possibly a lot longer), with around 1000m of ascent at a steady pace.
If you are at all concerned about whether the trip is right for you, please call us on 07974 912479. We will be more than happy to advise.
Trip price: £1045
There are only 8 spaces available on a first-come, first-served basis. A £100 deposit secures a place with the balance payable 6 weeks before. We’ll also keep a waiting list in case anyone drops out.
*Note: The deposits will be refunded IN FULL if we are unable to run the trip for any reason or if we need to radically change anything.
The weather and conditions will have a huge bearing on what we can actually do –the itinerary is likely to change from day to day.
