Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), East Devon is known for its magnificent red cliffs on the Jurassic coast, its vivid green hills, heath land and ancient trees. It is also one of mountain biking’s best kept secrets.
From the Sid Valley to the Exe Estuary there is riding for all standards. Gentle tracks and swooping single-track vie with steep climbs and rocky descents. The jewel in the crown is the Pebblebed Heaths (best known as Woodbury Common) where Mountain Biking UK reported that there is “a huge amount of fun riding”.
Mazzard Farm has teamed up with Bike Guide Devon to offer Guided mountain biking weekends.
Forget the man-made berms, and board walks of the trail centres. Instead you will ride away from the crowds and discover the best trails that only a local knows how to find. You’ll also find big views, vibrant colours, an iron age fort and lots of wildlife.
Riding with a guide leaves you free to relax and enjoy the best the area has to offer. In two full days of riding you will ride exhilarating natural single track and feel the burn on our steep climbs. If you get too hot, we can grab a dip in the sea too. Lunch (which is not included in the price) will be at a local pub or cafe.
