Adventure Northumberland can not only teach you the basics of MTB and how to get the best out your bike and of your ride but we can also take experienced riders into new territory pushing your further. We can cater for groups of any size and for all abilities whether you're new to the sport or an experienced rider looking for a challenge. What better place to learn than the Northumberland coastline and countryside where we can take you over a wide range of terrains.
As well as coaching and guided rides for individuals we can also offer a family bike ride package. The details of this and of the beginners coaching session can be seen below.
A typical family ride would start at Boulmer and follow the National Cycle Route 1 north to Craster where there is time to enjoy the view over the harbour. This is a 4 hr ride and ideal for families and friends looking for a social ride.
Our beginners course covers all the essentials of MTB, whether you are new to mountain biking or have experience but struggle with some aspects, we ensure you will be making the most of your mountain bike in no time. The beginners course will include:
