What people say about Bike Guide Devon
"Fabulous! Felt so welcomed and loved the views and whole biking experience!!! Thank you so much for a fun morning! Hope to join you again!!" Mary Ann N (Get Back on a Bike)
"I joined the women only weekend, there were three of us plus Cathy. The accommodation was excellent with plenty of room for all three of us and a safe place for the bikes!
The cycling was great, it was the first time that I had been away with others on a biking weekend so I didn't really know what to expect! Well I was with a marathon runner and a highly proficient road cyclist!! That told me about my level of fitness but they waited for me on the uphill!! Sunday was my favourite day we all had blast on the single track and then down to Budleigh Salterton for a late lunch. Kathy is a very skilled MTB Leader she is calm and relaxed and is happy to go with the flow. Anyone wanting to learn a bit more technical riding would be advised to find a school. Kathy does not teach tech and does not profess to.
I would highly recommend Bike Ride Devon for a couple of really good days out and a great laugh. Mind you I was very lucky with the people I was on the weekend with...
"I went on my second mountain bike guided tour with Cathy and thoroughly enjoyed the experience again. I’m new to off road cycling and didn’t want to slow other members of the group down. I needn’t have worried.
"Cathy has a very calm approach and genuinely wants everyone to get the most out of mountain biking. I have had so much fun and would gladly take part in another guided tour of east Devon." - Andy S
"First time on a Mountain bike course and have come home to plan a day out on my bike with friends straight away. I spent most of the summer on my road bike and the object of going on the course was to gain back some confidence to get back out on my mountain bike again.
"In spite of (unfortunately) not feeling very well over the weekend, Cathy was absolutely superb in taking in to account my ability (or lack of energy!) and tailored the weekend so that both myself and the other lady had a great time.
"Beautiful views, great tips on how to ride various terrains and handle the bike. The accommodation was fantastic at Mazzard Farm. Friendly and helpful with keeping our bikes safe and able to clean them after ride.
"To sum up - I would definitely recommend this course for anyone who loves mountain biking. Cathy is a warm, friendly, fun and only to happy to make sure that you have a wonder time whatever your ability." - Lorrayne B attended a Women's Mountain Bike Weekend.
"Cathy is a very friendly approachable leader, she gave me lots of little tips which helped me a lot, we then went on to do some very nice trails around East Hill . I would highly recommend anybody starting out on their first mountain bike trails to have some instruction with Cathy beforehand it's a real confidence booster!" - Steve N
"Thank you so much for a fabulous ride, I really enjoyed it! Looking forward to the next one already." - Ele H
"I didn't realise how much Woodbury had to offer. I Had a great evening and met some lovely ladies. - Sam V
"Big thanks for a great day out. I asked Cathy for a slightly challenging route, which she delivered with great knowledge of the area. Can't wait 'til next time." - Parviz K
“I’m reasonably fit and enjoy riding my bike but lack a bit of confidence and have developed bad habits. Cathy has been very supportive and gently encouraging, passing on a few simple tips to help me get the best out of cycling. e.g. looking ahead (and not down!) when riding through narrow gaps, positioning myself in the right place on the road and using the gears efficiently (especially uphill).“ - Jackie C
"Cathy gives me positive helpful hints while out on rides. She particularly helped me with my core strength, this had a positive impact on my ability to climb hills with more ease and increase my speed steadily. This in turn has increased my confidence as a rider. She has shown me how to change a tyre properly and the right kit to carry. When I'm out on a ride with Cathy I feel safe." - Jenny H
