Schools & Youth Groups

Kids love exploring and with that in mind we have tailored a huge amount of activities available with Rutland Cycling to maximise the enjoyment kids can have whilst taking part.

Activities
Cycling, Climbing & Abseil Tower

At Rutland Cycling and our sister company, the RockBlok, we have years of experience in delivering outdoor activities for schools and youth groups. We provide exciting and educational sessions for all ages because we believe that young people should be encouraged to get outside and explore the world. Our activities range from climbing to cycling, high ropes to treasure hunts. With tailor-made packages and superb prices, there is no need to explore any further than Rutland Cycling for your school or youth group adventure.
