We are the UK’s MTB & Gravel Event Pioneers!
Trail Break was formed out of MTB boom of the late 80’s and created the first open trail MTB events in the country. We were there first with MTB trail rides, orienteering events and guided UK weekend breaks. We ran Alpine MTB holidays before they’d ever thought of putting bike racks on the chair lifts! And we got into the gravel bike game way back in 2010! Our event formats have been copied time and time again, to the point where they’ve pretty much become the standard; but that standard started with us! When you ride with Trail Break, you’re riding with the most experienced team in the events business. We love creating great rides and sharing them with as many people as possible, and we’re committed to making your day on the bike with the very best it can be! Just pick an event to enter, contact us if you any questions, and we’ll see you on the trail!
