Our philosophy

Has your mountain bike ever seen a mountain? Or even, come to think of it, a minor incline? Well at Fat Tyres Mountainbiking we're here to help you with that!

Our philosophy

Whether you're a keen beginner looking for an introduction to the sport or experienced trail wrecker after a weekend blast in the country, we've got something for everyone at various locations around some of the UK 's most beautiful areas. And don't go thinking that we're all hard-core racers here either. The emphasis is strictly on having fun, so whether you opt for a beginner's or more advanced level weekend, you can be assured of a genuinely warm welcome and plentiful riding in the company of like-minded spirits who'll encourage you to push yourself to the max, and beyond!

Finally, swapping the day's experiences over an evening meal and a drink is a great way to end the day. If you join a course or weekend on your own, as many of our guests do, you'll find biking is a great ice-breaker for developing new friendships!
