About Our Cycling Trails

All of our cycling trails have been carefully designed to minimise exposure to motor traffic and maximise peaceful rural scenery. We make best use of a mixture of quiet country lanes, bridleways and tracks - with occasional villages for refreshment stops. The gently winding nature of our trails provides great flexibility, with easy short-cut opportunities available should you need them.

Relaxed or Strenuous, Onroad or Offroad - Your Choice

We hope that everyone will appreciate the scenic & near traffic-free experience of our cycle routes. But when it comes to daily distance, hilliness, and onroad/offroad terrain preference, we recognise that everyone's idea of a perfect day's bike ride is different! So we've established a trail versions scheme (see table below) to meet a very wide range of activity levels. Our 2-4 night Beginner Tours offer "Beginner" and "Occasional Rider" versions. Our 2-8 night Regular Tours offer versions for Occasional, Regular, and Energetic Riders. Our Day Trails offer versions for all levels, from Beginner right through to Energetic.
