Our cycling holidays in the South West will immerse you in the best of Cornwall and Devon’s countryside and coast, where you can revel in the delight of dramatic cliffs, sandy beaches, captivating villages and wild moors, nestled in a timeless landscape.
We have combined the most breathtaking cycle trails, so you can ride on quiet country lanes and off-road gravel paths along the beautiful Camel Trail, Tarka Trail and Drakes Trail! You will never feel closer to Nature than you do on these tours!
You can cycle at your own pace, with friends, family or as a couple or solo!
Electric bikes are available on all our cycling tours.
Just 4 hours from London, Cornwall is the jewel in England’s coastal crown. On our cycling tours we take advantage of the stunning rail to trail and quiet country lanes around the South West Coast, with incredible views around every headland, clifftop and beachfront.
Devon is even closer, with just a short 2 hour train journey to Exeter St Davids or Tiverton Parkway. So what are you waiting for! Get in touch now to learn more!
