The Guided Mountain Bike Trail Ride will be conducted on every Sunday in 3 batches. You can choose between the following sessions.
1st Session: 7 AM – 9 AM
2nd Session: 10 AM – 12 PM
3rd Session: 3 PM – 5 PM
If you have been riding mountain bikes for some time and want to experience the best single track trail riding that Pune has to offer, then look no further. Our guides maintain the trails all year round and know the best spots. Be prepared to take in some breathtaking views while riding some of the best all mountain trails in western Maharashtra.
The best time of the year to ride the local bike trails at Spirit of Mogli is between October and March when the temperature and soil conditions are optimum. Please remember to pack your windcheaters if there is forecast for rain, as the trail ride will continue on schedule and will NOT be cancelled due to rains.
Mountain Biking is a great way to have a shared experience of adventure, nature and exercise with your family and friends. The trails we will be riding will have a good mix of uphill as well as downhill sections. After riding here over the years, we believe that a hardtail MTB is the perfect setup for riding the trail network here. It is preferable if riders have basic trail riding experience but it is not a necessity.

Is Mountain Biking safe? What about injuries?
Mountain Biking is an adventure sport which does come with its share of risks. We will be providing Helmets and you can bring your own cycling gloves. Beginner level trails are fairly wide with low risk of impacts and riders can cross difficult obstacles by walking over it.
Our guides are trained in Wilderness Advanced First Aid certified by NOLS. So in case of an unexpected injury, they are fully equipped to assess the situation and take steps till a medical facility is reached.
Do I need to bring my mountain bike?
No! You can come to Spirit of Mogli on just your personal vehicle without the hassle of lugging along your own MTB. We want to make mountain biking hassle free and easy to approach. That is why we have a fleet of 12 GT Avalanche Comp mountain bikes at Spirit of Mogli. There are 6 Small and 6 Medium size bikes so you can find the right size that fits you. The rental for the mountain bike is included in the price you pay.
I haven’t cycled in a long time. Will I be okay?
Cycling is like walking in the sense that once you know it you can’t forget it. We will do some fun drills to get you back into the groove and comfortable on the bikes. Next we spend time riding the Pumptrack to get used to the right posture and grip while on the bike. We will head to the forest trails only after we have warmed up and comfortable on the bicycle.
What is the minimum age for kids to learn mountain biking?
By age 13, most kids will be able to handle a mountain bike. We have 6 Small size Mountain Bikes that will fit most young teenagers. For younger kids we recommend BMX bicycles that can be used on our dirt pumptrack.
