Trails, tracks and quiet roads

Wherever you want to ride, BackPedalling can help you make it happen

A quick word from Andy

Covid 19 response

During the coronavirus outbreak we will not be running any BackPedalling group rides or coaching.

We plan to start offering them again as soon as we feel it is safe and in accordance with government guidance.


We have some exciting services that we are offering during the crisis.

Find out more below.

Everything is delivered at a safe social distance of at least 2 metres.

We won’t make contact with you at any point. If there is a problem with your bike, we’ll take care of it, wearing gloves at all times.

Payment is by bank transfer to further reduce contact.

Pay What You Can

These are difficult times for a lot of people, ourselves included. We understand that money can be an issue.

During lockdown we are offering all our services on a “Pay What You Can” basis.

This is our day job, but getting you on your bike is the most important thing right now.

Who is

Guide and coach

My name is Andy, and I run BackPedalling.

I have a deep passion for riding my bike in amazing places. I’m a trail womble: finding the wonderful things others have overlooked. I love unearthing new places to ride, particularly close to where I live.

But the thing that I love most is showing that to other people and seeing their reaction to the great places we can get on our bikes. Whether it’s on a mountain bike or on the road, whether it’s on an adventure or the way to work I want you to have the best time you can on a bike.

I get a massive kick out of helping people to feel more confident and more capable on their bikes, because I believe you’ll have more fun when you are confident.

This is why I became a professional guide and coach, and that’s why you can be confident in my skills.
