Guiding & Instruction

Are you a local who wants to find some great riding, are you looking to improve your mountain bike skills and impress your riding buddies with some secret instruction or coaching? You may even be just looking to visit the area for the day and want to get straight to the best trails for an amazing day's riding without maps flapping in the wind?

At Big Bear Bikes we have a wealth of local trail knowledge built up over years of riding.  We have fully trained professional guides and instructors to help take your riding to the next level.  We are recognised approved by the Forestry Commission to operate in Dalby Forest and we also offer rides on the North York Moors - one of the most untapped mountain bike resources in the UK.

We run skills sessions for all levels from beginners just starting out to experienced riders looking to improve speed and flow or tackle that heart pounding drop off.  Our guided rides take account of level, fitness and experience, ranging from 2-3 hour easy loops to full on day epics.

Prices start at just £25pp for a group booking. There are so many options we can't possibly print them all. We even do bespoke courses, one to one coaching and schools or business groups so pick up the phone or drop us an email, we'll have a chat and select an option that meets your needs.


"How to transform from nervous novice to red route slayer in one easy step. The pace of instruction, and structured approach works wonders, and as the improvements come thick and fast, confidence rises. Before I knew it, we were flying along! There’s no doubt I’ll be back! Thanks again for such a great day."

"I'd definitely recommend any mountain bikers not to miss out on the opportunity of the guided rides (no matter how good or not-so-good you think you are!). They know some awesome routes on the North York Moors (way better than the MBR versions!) and know Dalby forest like the back of their paws! Let’s just say we finished our rides grinning from ear-to-ear! Overall, an awesome couple of days - will visit again for sure!"
