We have cycle rides between February and November, 20 to 35 miles, easily accessible by public transport on quiet roads or cycle paths, great for beginners or anyone who enjoys discovering places they never knew existed rather than lots of tarmac. Lunch in a pub and morning or afternoon tea in cafes. Our cycle rides, walks and other clog events are aimed at adults rather than families.

Always bring a spare tube (that fits your wheels) on cycle rides in case of punctures.

By bike we explore rivers, canals, forts, castles, coast, marshes, gardens, woods, ruins, sea walls, churches, mansions, cycle-ferries, churchyards, villages, lost railways....

Puglia cycle tour Easter 2018 - Puglia  is a unique area sandwiched between the Adriatic and the Ionian in the heel of Italy containing with two UNECSO World Heritage towns (and many other historic and unusual places: cathedrals, sassi (cave houses), trulli (stone houses with conical roofs) castles, medieval walled towns, ancient white cities, olive groves and dramatic coastlines

Alps to Adriatic April 2018 where we cycled one of the most spectacular cycle routes in Europe with medieval towns and quaint villages, wooded rivers, wild ravines.  We started in Tarvisio and cycled downhill on a cycle path on old railway line passing down through scenic alpine valleys crossing bridges and ravines and going a through a succession of tunnels and galleries.  Then on through woods dominated by high mountains and traversing the fertile plain of Friuli with its historic towns of Venzone, Udine, Palmanova, Aquilaea before arriving at at the lagoon islands of Grado and on by the rivers and islets to Monfalcone.

We have plans for more cycling trips in 2018!  Check out our events and trips pages for more information.
