Cycling

We have cycle rides all year round, most weeks in the warmer months but less frequently in winter with distances ranging from 15 to 40 miles.  These are 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.... 

We also have a number of easy cycle touring trips abroad each year.
