Why Beyond The Mud?

Mountain Bike Coaching

We tend to spend a small fortune on kit, losing a few grams here and there to ‘improve’ our riding. For less than the price of a carbon handle bar you could improve your skills through coaching. Join us for personalised coaching in small groups, to move your mountain bike skills to the next level. We use video analysis to increase your learning and give faster results.


Regular Pilates can improve posture, muscle tone, balance and joint mobility, as well as relieve stress and tension. For sports, including cycling, running, swimming and golf Pilates can complement training by developing whole-body strength, flexibility and help reduce the risk of injury.

Mountain Bike Guiding

Immerse yourself in singletrack and enjoy a two wheeled adventure. Our qualified and experienced guides will take you to the best singletrack spots in the Surrey Hills, South Downs, Wales, Peak District and the Pyrenees. Make the most of every day, soak up the trails, mountains, forests and nature in the hands of the best professionals.
