Mountain biking


The Surrey Hills are an excellent base for mountain biking catering for beginners to experienced riders. At Compass Outdoor we specialise predominently in providing training for female cyclists at beginner/intermediate level and improvers seeking confidence to take on some of the tougher off road climbs that are a feature of the Surrey Hills. This can be through tuition or guided rides on a group or individual basis.
