Our Rides

Let Rough Ride Guide help you get out and ride...


With 20 years of experience exploring and writing route guides across the UK, here at Rough Ride Guide, our main aim is to help you get out and have some amazing adventures on your bike. We understand that sometimes you may require more than a route map and guide to help you achieve this though, so we also offer a range of services and support to help make your adventures and dream journeys become a reality, from solo guided rides to multi-rider events:

If you'd like a fullly signed route to ride, with all the logistics, facilities and support from an expert team on hand, join our small, friendly social events, whether it's to undertake an epic challenge such as our London to Brighton Off-Road @ Night or one of our more relaxed Brewery & Vineyard rides. Join our mailing list to be the first to find out some new and exciting events and group rides we have planned... 

Holding the UK's highest MTB with British Cycling (level 3 MTB guide and Night riding) qualifications and having been riding all over the UK exploring the best trails writing guidebooks and route guides for the UK's top MTB magazines (such as MBUK), we are in the best position possible to guide you anywhere you want to go. For bespoke guided rides, offering maximum fun, efficiency and safety you need look no further. Choose from One-to-One Rides, Group Rides, Kids Rides, Family Rides. Whatever combination you'd like to ride in, we can help guide you with that ride!

We provide back-up vehicles, bag transfer and support to make your dream rides come true. Join us, and like-minded riders, for organised epic adventures such as the King Alfred's Way or the Chiltern's Tour with the peace of mind that everything is taken care of.

We also organise and support private groups on various classic or your own bespoke routes. Please contact us whether you just want some ideas or if you know exactly what you want, where, how many days, baggage transfer, support vehicle, even support riders - we can make it happen.

We designed and help run the biggest off-road charity bike ride in Europe, the London to Brighton Off-road, with the British Heart Foundation, as well as others, such as the unique London to Paris off-road, to classic trails such as The Ridgeway and South Downs Way and The Great North Trail, with Cycling UK. 

If you want to organise a specific or unique ride to raise money or to provide a corporate team building activity, then we can help you to plan your very own unique and custom adventure from designing a route, to organising the lot, just contact us and we'll be happy to get your custom trip underway!
