Guides | Big Mountain Bike Adventures


We are committed to delivering the very best guided mountain bike adventures possible and we’re proud of our amazing guide team.


Since 2001 we’ve been researching riding regions and developing partnerships with the very best leaders around the globe. We’ve run hundreds of trips and hosted over a thousand mountain bikers. We’re constantly reviewing logistics, discussing feedback with our riders and examining our client evaluation forms to improve our riders’ experience, and itineraries, at every turn.

Local Experts.

To execute a successful mountain bike adventure in a far-away country requires intimate local knowledge. Not only knowing which way to turn on the trail and how to speak the language, but also how to solve mechanical issues where bike shops might not exist, or deal with unexpected logistical challenges or unexpected changes in trail conditions or extreme weather in exposed remote places, and so much more. Our guides are the best guides in each location. Plus they’ll take you deeper into a region, offering you insight that will make your riding trip truly unforgettable.


Our guides are extraordinary people with the single goal of delivering once-in-a-lifetime mountain bike adventures. They are versed on the type of trails that our riders are seeking and versed on high-performance bikes and their mechanics. They are passionate about mountain biking, about respecting the environment and local population and about sharing the region’s cultural, historical and cuisine highlights. Most importantly, our guides adhere to Big Mountain’s protocol for rider safety and rider service.

Here are just a few of our guides that are ready to show you their culture, stunning scenery and amazing trails on your next Big Mountain Bike Adventures’ trip.
