Our level scale gives you an idea of your technical riding ability and fitness level so that you can choose mountain bike packages that suit your needs and abilities.

The scale is divided into 5 levels from beginner to expert. 

The technical and physical levels indicated for a MTB or Ebike trip are given as the minimum required. You may have to ride more technically or physically challenging sections of the route.  

Please read this level scale carefully and if you are unsure please contact us to check if your level is suitable for the mountain bike holiday you wish to book.
