You will progress at a level that is consistent with your comfort. Once you finally get the hang of trail riding, you will only want more!

What to expect from hiring a MTB guide?
One of the reasons why mountain biking is so popular is the rush of adrenaline it sends through your veins. Sure, danger is part of the appeal, but you’ll want to avoid any unnecessary risks by hiring a guide. They’ll make sure you enjoy the ride and feel safe while doing it. There is no road map or GPS technology out there that’s as good as having an experienced local guide to lead the way while mastering unfamiliar trails. There’s always more to see, and your guides know just where to go to find it!
