We create mountain biking experiences

We love mountain biking. And we love to share it. Our experienced team of leaders and coaches are ready to guide you through the very best mountain biking on offer.

From our base in south-east England, we offer a year-round range of group rides and custom one-to-one sessions in the South Downs National Park, the stunning Surrey Hills and the unique Isle of Wight. We take you further afield, with multi-day trips to remote locations like the Peak District, Lake District, south Wales and Scotland’s Tweed Valley. Our tailored coaching helps you refine and progress your mountain biking skills, so you can maximise your enjoyment.

All of this is mixed with the special Marmalade MTB ingredient: fun. Marmalade rides and trips are known for their friendly, sociable, welcoming buzz. We ride and we laugh. 

And amid the fun, there’s room for business too: we plan and deliver the very best corporate experiences, workplace team-building days, press launches and cycle industry events. We take this stuff seriously.

So come ride with Marmalade MTB. We love mountain biking and we’re looking forward to sharing the best experiences with you.

Thanks Jim for a great session – I developed my confidence in cornering and enjoyed learning how to tackle drop offs, which I’ll continue to practice. There was a good mix of skills coaching and trail riding, presented in a fun, clear and relaxed way. Highly recommend. Thanks again

Anna, Uckfield (Coaching)

The ride that I had with Sean in the Surrey Hills was the first time I had been on a mountain bike in 10 years. Sean was absolutly brilliant and put me immediatley at ease. The whole morning was super relaxed and great fun – by the end I had a grin from ear to ear, which is what riding a bike is all about! I cannot recommend Marmalade/Sean and his team enough – I will be booking more rides!

Mark, Guildford (1-2-1 guided ride)

My second time on the Lakes trip and just as good as the last time. Hawkshead is a great location for some fantastic MTB trails and the mid week timing meant it was all quiet. Liz was a fantastic trip leader and made sure everyone enjoyed every second.

Richard, Sussex (Lake District trip)

Awesome guided trip to Wales, simply superb. I’ve used Marmalade MTB for guided rides for the past few years and they always deliver a great experience. I definitely recommend Marmalade to everyone.

Ian, Kent (South Wales trip)

Had an absolutely fantastic 2 days. Sean was a super, confidence building guide enabling us to ride terrain we would never have tackled on our own. Would definitely recommend this trip.

Debbie, Surrey (Peak District trip)

Brilliant ride expertly guided by Clive. Ride has a great mix of trails and some great views. I’ve ridden with Clive before and he’s a fantastic guide – always supportive, very knowledgeable and great at leading a group. Thank you for a fab day!

Sara, Portsmouth (Wiston and the Downs)
