Sustainability and values

You will be sent a kit list and asked to bring a reservoir for your pack, or use cycling water bottles. Water is refilled in each of the venues, so no purchasing of single-use plastic water bottles.

Trail wise, this biking operator only uses trails that are legal rights of way for cycling: bridleways, fire roads, jeep tracks and of course man-made trails at bike parks. When the weather has been particularly wet, they avoid using trials frequently, and let them recover, lessening their impact. They also go out and drain some trails in a voluntary capacity. During the winter months, they avoid all natural trails that they guide on to recover for the following year. All areas of special scientific interest are strictly by-passed even if there is a cycling trail through there. 
They work alongside locally owned accommodation, local farmers and source from local providers as much as possible. It's a very tight and local network of support.

All of the tours offered through Natural Britain have been assessed for the amount of carbon emitted and this is shown against each featured itinerary below. To help make sense of this figure, you can head over to our Carbon Emissions page for useful comparisons with overseas travel etc.​
