Why do we require an application?

Our application process is in response to two of the most common questions our Riders have prior to booking a trip with us:

1) Am I skilled/fit enough to participate in this Ride?
2) Will the other people on my Ride be skilled/fit enough?

Ensuring that you - and the other Riders on your Ride - are a good fit for the Ride selected is of paramount importance to us. We want to help you pick the Ride that's perfect for you, and ensure that everyone booked on a Ride is on the right Ride for them. That's why we want to know a bit more about you - your mountain biking history, where you ride, how often, etc... - before we take your money.

We review every application and if, based on your responses, we think you're a good fit, we'll approve your application and you'll receive a link to place a deposit. If we think you might not be a good fit (either too skilled or not skilled enough for the Ride you chose), then we'll give you a call to discuss your preferences in greater detail.

Please note: our application process isn't about excluding anyone, or making anyone feel like they're not 'good enough' to participate in one of our Rides. It's about ensuring that you end up on the right Ride for you, with people of similar skill, fitness and riding preferences. In the end this ends up being a much better experience for everyone.

No Stress. No Deadlines. Co-workers and Friends Afternoon Out.

Whether you're  a beginner and in need of a bit of guidance, practice, time and encouragement, or a seasoned rider with years of experience under your tread, we cater to your skill level, fitness and duration of riding. All with an atitide of fun and shred!   Make some new friends outside the workplace and share many laughs with  both on and off the bike. Make this a Co-workers Day Out with your friends: options include   over 75 miles of trails and  many local restaurants to dine in - Richmond has so many options to make a perfect day  or afternoon out for you!

IS THIS RIDE FOR YOU?

We'll cater this ride based on your skill and fitness levels. Are you a cyclist who likes to hammer up and down technical trails, work on skills, and session tougher sections? Or do you want to get a good workout in with some awesome climbs and leave the rocks and technical stuff for another time? We've got your ride!
