About Us

Who are we?

Mountain High Cycling Ltd is owned and managed by husband-and-wife team, Helen & Chris Balfour.

We are keen road cyclists who made the gamble to 'escape corporate life' back in 2007. Then we got lucky when Mark Cavendish, Cadel Evans, Sir Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome started winning and ignited the English-speaking cycling boom.

We have dedicated ourselves ever since to providing high quality, good value for money cycling experiences to riders from around the globe.

What makes us different?

  • The fact that we have each ridden almost every horizontal kilometre and every vertical metre of the tours and routes that we offer to our guests.
  • The all-round business skills we bring from our 'corporate past' - we understand the importance of good organisational skills, a strong customer-service ethic & the need to manage risks professionally. Most of all we hope that our enthusiasm for our sport shows in our personality and in the empathy we have with our riders.
  • There is nothing 'faceless' about Mountain High Cycling. You will meet us on any/every holiday or tour you ride with us and we will take personal responsibility for ensuring that you have a fantastictime.

Why ride with us?

  • We have the experience to format some of the best routes & rides in Europe.
  • We deliver our tours & holidays in person. We simply don't entrust our customers to the 'care' of part-time, one-season-only guides and tour managers.
  • Our organisational skills and flexibility to adapt to difficult riding conditions have earned us plaudits year in, year out.
  • We prioritise rider safety & smiles-per-mile over how cool our kit is & miles-per-hour.
