The idea for Ride with the Locals came after years of riding at different places all over the world. No matter how nice the trails were, wherever we accidentally bumped into a local rider, the trip instantly became legendary. Shuttle runs on privately owned Downhill tracks, long twisty single tracks that weren’t marked on any map and lunches at hidden mountain huts. The best things you just cannot arrange yourself. We choose our guides carefully. They are the ones with the knowledge that makes our trips special. Not only are all of our guides qualified, but also excellent bikers and overall nice guys and gals who are proud of where they are from and happy to show you around. Because the guides know the area like their back pocket, they can make sure you have the time of your life, no matter what riding level or style. Also, in case of a weather change or emergency situation, they know the shortcuts to get the group home safe. We don’t mix groups. For the simple reason that there will be always differences in riding level, humor, wishes etc. Go with your buddies, and you know you’ll have a good time. Each trip is planned separately, and we try to cater for every budget. From low budget camping trips to **** Hotel VIP treatment, or have them both combined in one trip! We thrive to give you the best holiday on two wheels, ever.
