Covid-19 update

During the Covid-19 outbreak, the safety and security of our guests, our staff and our suppliers is paramount.

We will make decisions about going ahead with or cancelling holidays on a trip by trip basis, reflecting government advice, WHO advice, and the detailed local situation at our destination. Although we will give as much notice as possible, because of the rapidly changing situation we may need to make late decisions.

In case of cancellations, we will be as flexible as possible, offering alternative dates or credit for a future holiday in order to secure the future of our small company. This policy is in line with the European Commission for Consumers advice on travel, directive in connection with Covid-19.

If you decide, independently, not to travel and choose to cancel your holiday, our usual cancellation terms will apply. In specific circumstances travel insurance may cover nonrefundable cancellation costs.

Stay safe and thank you for your understanding at this difficult time for us all.

Covid-19 alert: You will be aware the operation of our business has been affected by Covid-19…

Toughness Rating:
9.5 out of 10

WildBike is a Lakes MTB specialist, offering more riding options here than any other company. We run three different MTB experiences in this stunning adventure playground: An ‘all mountain’ trip in the South, our epic new ‘Lakes and to End (and back again)’, and this short, punchy ‘High Mountains and High Passes’ in the North. Get in touch if you would like us to help you decide which is the perfect adventure for you.

During this High Mountains holiday we will tackle the high rideable summits of the Northern and Eastern Lake District – Helvellyn, Skiddaw and High Street (a big bulky ridge ride that provides one of the longest high level traverses in the UK). All of them close to, or above, 3000 feet. The passes that join it all together are full of epic riding too – Nan Bield, Sticks, Black Sail. The views on a good day are astounding and the adrenaline rush builds at the thought of the epic descent ahead.

Out of all our holidays, you will get the most from this trip if you are really up for a challenge. The ups are long and steep and you will be carrying or pushing your bike on some sections; the downs are fast, long and often loose and/or rocky. Technical sections are never too far around the corner!

Your Lake District WildBike BaseCamp

On this Lake District mountain biking holiday we choose our campsites for their blend of atmospheric loveliness and clean and modern facilities, always with plenty of hot showers!

In common with all our BaseCamps, your Lake District BaseCamp is nicely sheltered and has awesome views from the tent door right across Ullswater and over the Helvellyn range. On-site breakfast bap caravan too!

You will be able to ride straight out of BaseCamp onto the high mountain trails, yet we are only a short pedal from the pubs and cafes of Glenridding.

Is it for me?

This is tough big mountain riding where the outstanding rewards of the descents come with big climbs. You need to be comfortable with the thought of shouldering your bike (we can show you a few tips to make this quite a comfortable experience!), with potential exposure to some serious mountain weather, and with riding loose, rocky, long descents. So if you are ready with an AM or Enduro bike, a good coat, a good degree of fitness and bags of attitude….come on down for the ride of your life on this Lake District guided MTB holiday!
