pie Guides

This is a guided ride with groups being led by pie guides who are familiar with the terrain and who help all abilities complete the challenge. For those not familiar with the pie guiding system:
• We offer guided rides to make sure we offer the very best care to our cyclists
• All of our guides are experienced cyclists. They range from ex-professional racers to keen amateurs and all are very used to guiding groups of differing abilities, experience and skills
• All of our guides will navigate their small group of 8 – 10 cyclists from start to finish
• They are on hand to do mechanical work so there is no waiting around for a mechanic’s van
• Many pie guides are first aid trained
• We make the ride suitable for most standards of cyclists (bar complete beginners) – check the daily distances and elevations to make sure you are happy with your level of fitness vs the challenge above, and then start some training to minimise the gap!
