Our self guided cycling tours will immerse you in the best countryside in the North, tracing iconic journeys across the country. Follow the classic Coast to Coast (C2C) route from Whitehaven, or ride the slightly shorter Hadrian’s Wall Route from Bowness on Solway. Both cycling routes start in the Lake District, head through Newcastle into historic Tynemouth.
From one breathtaking view to the next, these journeys will lead you away from the crowds and back to nature. Enjoy the freedom of the road less travelled, the culture, heritage and challenge of our National Trails, and rest your legs in our wonderful pubs, hand-picked hotels and BnBs every evening.
We take all the hassle out of your cycling tour by including all luggage transfers, organising and booking all accommodation, providing maps, GPS instructions, and recommending ancient sites and places of interest to visit along the way. Bike through the hills (fells) in the Lake District, alongside the whole of Hadrian’s wall, across moors and alongside the lakes, rivers and streams, into our wonderful small villages and market towns which criss-cross the stunning landscapes.
We also organise private tours for groups and families, with bespoke itineraries and guides to ensure your trip meets your every need.
Our tours are rated 97% excellent, just take a look at our Trip Advisor page, and are the perfect balance of active travel and relaxation in stunning surroundings.

Our cycling holidays are designed to be both a challenge and completely relaxing. Travel by train, or drive to the Lake District for the start of cycling tours (we will arrange transport back to your car at the end of the tour). We will also offer a range and accommodation options, both pre and post tour so you can guarantee to start your tour refreshed and go home invigorated.
