WildBike was founded in 2011 and was born from a long term passion for riding mountain bikes in wild places.
The owners of WildBike have ridden every inch of the trails ridden on our holidays. We are focused on the quality of trails, guiding, accommodation and food. Our ethos reflects this. We will stay small, add a few more quality destinations each year and keep the personal touch.
