TORQ’s guided rides are simple, beautiful inspirational experiences. In their purest form, we hurl away our Fitness Consultancy hats and take you out riding into the expanse of beautiful countryside that surrounds TORQ. We’ll stop at a pub for a relaxed and sociable lunch and clamber back onto our trusty steeds and ride some more. We’ll take you out all day and show you the most idyllic parts of Shropshire via the most adventurous trails in our extensive repertoire (half-day options also available).
As we previously mentioned, flexibility is the key to TORQ’s unique approach though, so if ‘pure recreational riding’ isn’t what you’re after, with our hugely versatile toolbox of skills, we’ll construct an itinerary for you that will fit like a glove. For further information on the diverse range of services on offer at TORQ, please visit the Options and Fees section of this website.
Start points for the guided rides are all within the Long Mynd National Park and will vary depending on the requirements of the individual/group and also the time of year. We have a variety of start points, so that you have the option to ride a different route each time you come and visit us. The general format is as follows:
09:00: Meet at ‘Start Point’ and drink tea!
09:30: Safety checks and introduction
09:45: Start guided ride
13:00: Lunch at a country pub (or you can bring your own lunch)
14:00: Continue riding
17:00: Finish and de-brief
We will discuss your individual/group requirements when you book, so will tailor the day to your needs. Alternatively, you might want to book onto one of our scheduled guided rides and join some other like-minded Mountain Bikers for a journey through the Shropshire countryside. Take a look at the Events section of this website for scheduled dates and the Options & Fees section for further information and pricing.
Fees (from £15 per person for a half-day): For information on the fee structure for TORQ’s Guided Rides, please visit the Options & Fees page located in the ‘Performance’ section of this website.
If you would like to book a scheduled guided ride, take a look at the Events page on this site, choose one of the dates/itineraries that suits you and e-mail us to reserve your place. Once again, the fees for these scheduled days are outlined on the Options & Fees page. You can also e-mail us to arrange a one-to-one Guided Ride or to book your own group of riders on a date that suits. Alternatively, give us a call on 0845 128 4312 .
