Coolpedals cycling holidays, cycle hire, cycling trails in Suffolk and Essex, UK

Who Are We?

Coolpedals is wholly owned and run by husband & wife team Paul & Sue Armstrong.

We're based in Langham village, just north of Colchester, on the southern edge of the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty ( or "Constable Country" as it's more commonly known).

We've lived here for over 20 years and feel privileged to have done so. Our aim with Coolpedals is to help people discover and enjoy the many charms of this lovely "old fashioned" corner of England.

We both agree that the best way to appreciate the area is to get off the beaten track and explore by bicycle. Thereafter we find it harder to agree! Sue's idea of a perfect day in the saddle involves gentle pedalling, smooth(ish) roadsurfaces, not too many hills, and frequent "interruptions" (for tea, coffee, an ice-cream, pub lunch, or any excuse really!). Paul is a bit of an exercise junkie, and enjoys much more energetic riding, with rough tracks and steep hills thrown into the mix.

Although we don't always agree on what makes for a perfect day's cycling, the nice thing about North Essex / South Suffolk is that it caters well for both types of riding. So we've made sure that all our routes are highly flexible, letting you pedal "Sue style", "Paul style", or somewhere in between.
