Ride Away Mountain Biking Tours

RIDE AWAY launched on 6 March 2008 in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, home to some of the most awesome single track routes in the world and also the venue for the UCI MTB World Cup XC and downhill. We organise mountain bike tours to some of the most beautiful destinations on our planet.

Why Ride Away?

We focus on the whole experience, rather than just mountain biking

Mountain biking is our passion and we understand what mountain bikers want.

  • Jeep track, flowing single track, country roads, mountain climbs and stunning descents.
  • Mind blowing scenery, riding through remote villages and experiencing other cultures. 
  • We cater for all types of riders, weekend warrior to racing snake and will customise a trip to suit your style.
  • We will take you to places on your bucket list..
  • We work hand in hand with the best MTB companies and guides in each country.
  • Mixing with like minded people with a passion for life and everything it has to offer.
  • We give back to the communities whose paths we cross by hiring local guides, sourcing local suppliers, and donating mountain biking and other sports items to needy children such as the shoe shine boys of Thamel, Kathmandu.

Our Mission

To offer exciting mountain biking and cycling adventures to riders in Southern Africa and beyond.

Our Vision  

Ride Away will ensure that you embark on a life changing experience and will return from your adventures inspired, challenged and motivated. Hopefully you will see the world through different eyes with a broader outlook on life having ridden the road less travelled.

If you like to ride a bike and don't want to see the world through the window of a bus. If you want to experience the real soul of a country there is no better way to do it than from a saddle with the wind in your face. Mountain biking gives you the opportunity to interact first hand with locals and absorb the culture. Unusual smells, exotic tastes and breath taking scenery.

Our focus is to build lasting relationships with mountain bikers in South Africa and from around the world. We will have new adventures and add new destinations for our customers each year. Ride Away promises value for money, dedicated guides and first class tours.
