Mountain Biking on Exmoor

Dan - Director

Mountain Biking is definitely Dan's main passion, though he will be found delivering all the activities on offer. As much as Dan would like to be out delivering activities, he has to spend more and more time on administrative duties!

Ben - Chief Instructor

Ben is a super keen Surfer and paddleboarder, having paddled around Menorca last year! You're likely to meet Ben, as he heads up most of our activity days and events.

Joe - Instructor

Joe is an avid Mountain Biker and keen White Water Kayaker. Originally from Exmoor, Joe is currently based in the Lake District where he is studying for an Outdoor Degree!

      Ben took us out paddling along the bay and we had a great time. He was a great guide and even took some photos for us. The scenery was beautiful!

      We went Coasteering today led by Ben and Joe and all had a great time. Party of 6 for son's 15th birthday, event well organised, briefed and led throughout. Just had a message from one of the mum's saying how much her son enjoyed it, despite being out of his comfort zone! Nice physical character building activity, and local river jumping will certainly be an anti-climax now for sure. Thanks again.

      We had a fabulous time kayaking along the coast from Porlock Weir. We were all beginners. Dan was a great and calm instructor. Very patient with our old mum who was amusingly useless and had to be towed along 🙂 We would definitely recommend and we want to do it again.
