Holiday Information

Taking in some of the most rewarding and challenging singletrack that the Lake District has to offer, this is a classic Skedaddle mountain bike holiday. Ambleside, at the northern end of Windermere in the Lake District, is the base for this fantastic weekend of riding.
Our team will hand-pick the routes according to current local conditions, but they'll always include cracking ascents over Lakeland Passes, miles of top notch cross country riding under the shadow of the Old Man of Coniston, heart racing descents and breathtaking views. This trip is hands down the favourite of many of our guides - these are some of the best technical trails anywhere in the UK. This is a weekend for those who love challenging mountain biking in a beautiful setting!
Riding straight from the front door of our accommodation, we will be faced with technical climbs, steep rocky descents, tight switchbacks and long flowing traverses. In many ways, this is the closest you will get to true alpine riding in the UK.
If you’ve found out how much fun you can have on a mountain bike on your local trails, then it’s time you headed to the ‘real’ outdoors and join us in a different part of the UK. These fun weekends are all fully guided by MIAS qualified biking guides and supported with a vehicle and driver too. With hearty breakfasts and lush lunches the order of the day, all you need to decide is what to have as your evening meal and which local ale you’ll be sampling.
For groups of friends, clubs or other organisations; if our dates don't fit we can put on your own special weekend for you!
