Welcome to Rough Ride Guide

Rough Ride Guide


Who are we? After launching onto the mountain biking scene in the noughties with a series of mountain bike guidebooks, Rough Ride Guide soon started working on a wide variety of projects with companies such as the British Heart Foundation, MBUK magazine and Cycling UK.

What do we do today? 20 years on and we are proud to offer a range of services from providing downloadable route guides to designing charity bike rides, to organising bespoke holidays and trips away. We also work with companies to organise unique corporate adventures and we're even still writing the route guides for MBUK.

Why? Although our work is constantly evolving, our vision has always remained the same; to get people out on their bikes and have an adventure. It is an awesome privilege still to be doing this and we look forward to where the next few years will take us. 

"An excellent route with excellent support from Max of Rough Ride Guide. He catered for a wide range of ability within the group and was on hand with sound advice and support. Thank you Max! We would certainly recommend Rough Ride Guide". Roddy Grant
