Guided gentle off-road gravel cycling for 2 days - along the coastal paths, or along the many prefect tracks in and around our UNESCO Biosphere and Galloway Forest Park. No technical biking skills required. Good fun with some tea & cake on the way.

There are far more cows in Galloway than people, and forests you can hide a city in. Tracks and trails cross the remote parts and drove roads link the villages. It is the perfect landscape to explore on a mountain or gravel bike with a local guide. 

Our Gravel for Mortals ride featured in Red Bull, as well as the Cycling UK Magazine.

We customise your trip to your ability and interests, from 25 to 65 miles each day. Leave the road behind and follow the path less pedalled. 

Accommodation can be 5 star and award winning or as simple as a bunkhouse. The ride often starts at the door.
