After your ride you’ll be hungry – or thirsty! Maybe you’ll need somewhere to stay. We know the best restaurants, pubs and hotels in the UK’s prime biking locations. Tell us how you’d like to spend your time off the bike and we’ll sort it.

For each of the following guiding options at our Surrey Hills location we have an opportunity for an eBiker experience. You can bring your own or, along with your guide, you’ll be able to hire an eBike.

Ride & Dine Packages

The best days out combine time on a bike with time spent relaxing. We don’t just know the best trails in the south east – but also the best places for lunch, dinner, a few drinks or even an overnight break. Your own private Marmalade bike guide will show you around. Let us arrange bike hire too and you have the perfect package for exploring scenic landscapes and gastronomic delights.

We spent a very enjoyable day with Sean on the South Downs last week, a great mixture of single track and trails finished off with an excellent lunch by the river! Sean was incredibly knowledgeable about the area, picking routes that offered something for all the mixed abilities in our group. A great day that I cant recommend highly enough.

Superb way to enjoy the beauty of this wonderful area, riding on a first class MTB and being introduced to exciting trails on the Surrey Hills. A well rewarding decision to contact Sean for this private guidance. Thank you for coordinating with Clive who was very professional, attentive and most important fun to be with. Don’t miss this opportunity if you can spare half a day outside of London!

What could be better than spending a day on the trails with your spouse, your partner or your best biking friend? We’ll take care of the details, the route and the support, so you can concentrate on enjoying some special time together.

A whole jar of marmalade fun! We celebrated Bruce’s 60th birthday in the Surrey hills. We were with Jim in the morning to develop some skills and techniques, and then Sean came along in the afternoon too for some guided trail riding. Jim’s coaching was spot on, and with plenty of chances to practise. The afternoon trails were just great, swooping from one single track to another – some technical and rooty stuff with smooth fast tracks too. Oh yes a bit of climbing built in!!
Thank you so much both of you, the day was just as I had asked for and we will be back!
I will be flying the Marmalade flag!

Took our 5 and 8 yr olds out with Marmalade MTB South Downs – Sean was brilliant with the boys helping improve their technique before taking on a bespoke route which they loved. can’t thank you enough for a brilliant day

Sean guided us around the trails of Holmbury and Pitch Hills just before Christmas 2020. So much fun! It was my first time doing some proper mountain biking and I absolutely loved it. Sean set a good pace (poor chap had to keep up while all the rest of us were on e-bikes!) and showed us the best that the area had to offer. We covered a lot of ground in just a few hours! He was really helpful in providing riding tips and great fun to spend the time with. I highly recommend using him as a guide.
