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!

      directions to meeting location were spot on, Dan was there when arrived. The day was very well planned and felt at ease knowing that Dan was ensuring everyone knew what they were doing - didn't want the day to end. There is a small coffee...More

      We were a group of families with kids aged from 14 down to 8 and booked a morning coasteering with Dan.

    I wasn’t quite sure what coasteering would be exactly. It turns out to be swimming in wetsuits out to rocks, climbing up them (walking up them really, as they are more like ledges) and then jumping into the sea. Repeat. It was great fun! Everyone started on a low jump and then those more confident could progress to higher ones.

    Dan and Joe were great hosts. A good sense of humour and very experienced at putting us at our ease. Even those who claimed beforehand to be there just to keep an eye on their kids surprised themselves with how much they enjoyed themselves.

    100% recommended - we’d do this again if coming to Exmoor. More
