Rough Ride Guide

MTB guidebooks

Our unique guidebooks are designed, written and produced by MTB'ers for MTB'ers, and are all made in Britain.

Features include:

  • Unique ring-binder folder design
  • Ordnance Survey maps
  • Removable water resistant pages
  • Shortcut & Extension route options
  • Route profiles & local information


We have an extensive library of online routes that you can pick and choose as you like and download in a format suitable for your needs. We also produce the route guides for the UK'S biggest MTB magazine, MBUK, and guest write articles for other publications such as the Cycling UK magazine, Singletrack, Bikepacking and Cycling Plus.

We design routes and help run charity off-road events such as the British Heart Foundation's London 2 Brighton off-road, which is now the largest off-road charity bike ride in Europe, and Mencap's Manchester to Blackpool 'Pedal to the Pier'.

When we find the time, we also love to run our own events, such as the amazing Welsh Coast 2 Coast off road epic, London to Brighton at Night and London to Paris Gravel

We are also British Cycling qualified MTB guides, trained in outdoor first aid and insured by British Cycling, able to provide guided rides for all abilities, using our extensive knowledge and experience of the UK trails, to provide the best custom made adventures to suit your needs.

Other than that we have a bespoke online shop stocking a few carefully selected cycling goodies that we know any cyclist would love to have or treat their cycling friends to....

If we can help you in any way get out on your bike and ride, or help plan an event, then get in touch, we would love to hear from you!
