Bike Hire For schools

Mountain Biking for Schools / Young People

At Cyclewise Whinlatter we are keen to promote the benefits of mountain biking to everyone.

We have a great fleet of high-quality Cube mountain bikes available to hire. This means we can provide your group of young people with the opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy the thrills and excitement of off-road riding in a safe and controlled environment.

Our bike hire centre operates within Whinlatter Forest in the picturesque Lake District where we have a variety of amazing trails to suit all abilities.


Group Bike Hire & Guide

At Cyclewise we have a proud history of working with many schools and outdoor education centres, and we recognise the value of the outdoor classroom.
We understand just how important it is to get out into the great outdoors. Biking can have a positive effect on a young person when undertaken in a safe, challenging, and fun way.

We employ the best and most experienced MTB guides in the UK. They are all qualified British Cycling Leaders who are fully enhanced, DBS checked. They have also undertaken Safeguarding training and hold up to date First Aid Qualifications. Our staff all have years of experience working with young people in an outdoor environment.

We believe that with an unbeatable venue, quality hire bikes and our highly qualified and enthusiastic guides, a day at Cyclewise Whinlatter will be one that your group will never forget.
