Guided Rides

Guided Rides, Holidays and Rough Ride Guide Events

With 2 decades of riding experience behind us, here at Rough Ride Guide, our main aim is to help you get out and have an enjoyable riding experience. We understand this may require different support for different people. We therefore have a range of products and services to help guide and get you out safely on your bikes:

1  Need some help knowing where to get out and ride? Try our extensive range of online routes to download and use independently; both man-made and natural trails are listed here on our UK map. Not forgetting our pioneering guidebooks (where it all started) with removable pages available from our online shop.

2  If you fancy a challenge but want piece of mind why don't you try one of our supported self-guided adventures such as the King Alfreds Way multiday epic

3  Maybe you'd like a signed route to cycle with all the facilities to hand? Our small and friendly events such as the Chilterns Challenge might be just what you're looking for. Or our flagship London to Brighton Off-Road events will also have a signed route to guide you safely down to Brighton. 

4  Perhaps you're looking for someone to guide you?  Take a look at our bespoke guiding services where we could offer you and your family half a days riding along with hints and tips on skills and maintenance or come and just join one of our set dates for a guided ride around our beautiful stomping ground in the Chilterns - we'd love to meet you for a relaxed and sociable ride. See below also for our list of recommended guides in other parts of the UK.

5  Maybe your business would like us to organise a corporate or charity event? We have put together some amazing adventures and challenges over the years - why not let us organise a vineyard gravel ride or maybe a multiday overseas adventure? Whatever your requirements, we have the experience to make your team have a fantastic and bonding experience!

We look forward to helping you get out and ride whatever your requirement!
