After starting our business by writing and publishing one of the first proper mountain bike guidebooks nearly 20 years ago, Rough Ride Guide has come a long way since then. We work with various charities, such as the British Heart Foundation, designing and coordinating their mountain bike events, run our own events including our latest King Alfred’s Way epic and write the Big Ride Guide routes and articles each issue, for the UK's biggest and best MTB magazine, MBUK.
Our mission has always been to inspire people to get out on their bikes, to have some fun, adventure and life long experiences. By providing expertly written route maps, some choice pieces of kit (have you seen our exclusive US Wingnut bags?!) and some bespoke events, this still very much holds true today. We look forward to helping you on your journey; wherever that may be to….
After a tough Covid filled year, we plan to lift your spirits in 2021 with some exciting new events and guided rides
