Our guided rides allow you to have a ride tailor made to you or you group's needs. We can take you on routes that combine blue routes and easy fun section of red routes, or we can get you straight to the best bits. The additional benefit of Sutton Bank Bikes is we are a fixed based approved provider at Sutton Bank Trail Centre, we have risk assessed our rides and have robust operational procedures in place. Our rides are perfect for schools and organisations who need to make sure that a thorough risk assessment is in place. Prices start from as little as £8 per person! Call us at the shop for further information on 01845 597759.
If you'd prefer not to join a public group, you'd like a one to one / two to one session designed just for you, or you have a group with specific requirements then our bespoke days are what you're looking for. We'll work with you to develop a session plan ahead of the day so we can quickly focus on the riding at hand.
women only courses
We have historically found that women adapt quicker to skills instruction (with fewer bad habits and an openness to learn - but don't tell the fella's that!). All of our Skills Instruction Courses are available in a women-only environment at the same prices as shown above. We will run specific dates for women who prefer to learn with a female instructor in a group with other females. If however you are wanting a one to one skills instruction session with Sophie, prices are only £40.00 for 1.5 hours. No excuse, it is never too late to learn!
These courses are:
- Run by female tutors
- Tailormade to your needs
- Fun, practical courses to suit your level
- No pressure, lots of support
