Swift Trails LTD is a MTB guiding and tuition company operating in the stunning Tweed Valley. Our aim is quite simple - to get as many women out on their bikes, building confidence in fitness and riding technique. We run a variety of courses plus regular ride-outs, bike maintenance workshops and a Wednesday night womens social group.
To support women feel confident on their bikes, Swift Trails run monthly guided ride-outs, a womens MTB social group, MTB skills courses specifically for women, family fun days and bike maintenance workshops.Back
Who should go on your courses?
Our clients come from a diverse range of biking abilities and fitness levels and we pride ourselves on our ability to cater for everyone from the absolute beginner to the advanced rider looking for challenging trails and longer routes in more remote terrain.
Swift Trails schedule courses for beginners and intermediate riders. We like to think we excel at introducing MTB to women – creating a relaxed and sociable environment where women can learn MTB and develop their confidence and technique.
