Mountain Biking Corporate Experience Days
£40.00 – £130.00
Awesome half and full day custom mountain bike experiences for your team, clients or customers across the Surrey Hills, South Downs and Purbeck Hills. Bike hire is included and we can also organise mini-bus travel as an optional extra!
Bring your team together or indulge your customers!
Our expertise and knowledge of the off-road biking trails across the South East, that includes the Surrey Hills, South Downs National Park and the Purbeck Hills is second to none. The passion we have for creating custom mountain biking activities will reflect in the tailored experience for your employees, clients and customers.
These can vary from half, full or multi-day introductions to mountain biking for the novice, to the the extremely challenging adrenaline fuelled adventure for the regular cyclist or expert mountain biker. A fully custom experience is based around flexibility to fit in within your working week and therefore our agile team of highly qualified mountain bike leaders and coaches can coordinate the travel logistics (mini-bus if required), equipment and refreshments seamlessly with your schedule.
What to expect!
Our professional MTB leaders will provide a super relaxed and sociable day that will kick-off with the all important informative briefing. After the chilled start we will explore the woodland trails and bridleways that festoon the famous Surrey Hills. Depending on the overall level of the group, we will use our unrivalled knowledge of the trail network to dynamically adapt the ride to ensure your introduction to trail riding and singletrack, is all about high-fives and ear to ear grins.

Under the expert leadership of our professional MTB guides, the riding will be a mixture of cross-country on double track bridleways of the South Downs and Purbeck Hills to the super fun and flowing singletrack of the famous Surrey Hills. The terrain and trails we will use are not overly technical, however, they will provide an exciting mixture to inject plenty of fun and a sense of challenge for all levels, especially novice mountain bikers.
A Marmalade MTB experience would not be complete without a mid-ride lunch stop at an idyllic village pub, cafe or beauty spot for a delicious lunch or picnic.
