Trails, tracks and quiet roads

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

A quick word from Andy

The state of play

The world is an unpredictable place at the moment and Covid has not gone away.

As the world begins to open up I am beginning to think about offering more rides again.

Where we are now:

Bike Buddy, 1 to 1 rides and confidence sessions are being run now. Scroll down to find out more about them.

I am going to offer group rides again from spring. I am happy to deliver rides for groups of people who already know each other.


I am not yet comfortable bringing together groups of strangers, so won’t be offering a schedule of group rides.

What we do:

Feel confident be happy

Everyone wants to feel confident on their bike.

We want you to feel confident riding your bike.

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.
