Your free time is precious, so it’s important to choose the right mountain bike guide.
We know it can be difficult to decide between the many different mountain bike guides out there, so here are a few things which will help when making your decision…..
1. knowledge of the area
Growing up near Holmfirth, Jason has been riding bikes around here since he was a child. He still lives and rides locally, meaning that he knows the area like the back of his hand. The Peak District National Park boundary reaches into the Holme Valley, so if you’re looking explore a quieter part of the National Park, we can give you many options from technical trails to easier tracks.
Alternatively, if you’re keen to visit the more well known areas of the Peak District (eg. Ladybower, Hope Valley or the White Peak), then we have also have lots of knowledge to offer, taken from the many years spent climbing, walking and mountain biking around here.
2. designed for you
Ride Holme runs pre-organised days and also offers rides tailored to individuals or groups.
We always look at the mix of experience and ability when tailoring rides, adapting routes to suit you.
When you book a tailored ride with us, we’ll ask you a few questions to find out what sort of terrain you want to ride, how long you want to be out and the level of skill and experience which members of your party have.
We will then create a ride especially for you.
3. Somewhere Different
There are many ways to discover a new area: guidebooks, online routes, apps, etc. However, hiring a guide will help you make the most of your day and their knowledge of where you want to ride is priceless.
When you book with Ride Holme, we’re responsible for navigation and route finding meaning that your day can have more flow without the stop/start to keep checking where you are.
We can also take you on quieter trails which are not currently found in a guidebook.
4. Trail Conditions
Because we live, work and play in the area, we know what the trail conditions are like throughout the year.
So, when it’s wet and gloopy out there, we can still come up with a great all weather route to keep you riding and avoiding the more sensitive areas.
