Adventure Highlights

If you love the outdoors, camping, cycling, adventure & you're ready to try something different with a fun, relaxed group of people... this is the adventure for you! Explore the beautiful Quantock Hills by bikes, carrying all of your kit and feeling fully self-reliant. You'll relax in the wilderness whilst camping and getting away from the normal 9-5. Experience wild camping and enjoying the simple pleasures of cooking outside and the warmth of a camp fire. ​Our riding style is focused on enjoyment and adventure as opposed to white knuckle down hill descents. Routes will take between 6-8 hours to complete with stops en route to enjoy coffee, cake and lunch! A moderate level of fitness is required to make the most of the weekend as there will be a few hills to climb.

This adventure is perfect for individuals and small groups, and can be tailored for:

  • Corporates
  • Hen / Stag parties
  • School groups
  • Families
