Eliminating Right Hand Turns Whilst Biking in England
After many years of guiding Active England guests around the Cotswolds region, it is clear that our guests adapt very quickly to biking on the left-hand side of the road.
Our roads are well maintained and drivers are both courteous and respectful. In fact, the only times our guests find the roads a challenge is when they turn right – occasionally cutting the corner and ending up on the right-hand side of the road.
To eliminate this happening we have two provisions – be as close as possible to our guests and guide them across all junctions with our 1:5 guide/guest ratio and also be eliminating all major right turns on our route.
Our total route is 235 miles, over an eight day period, with no major right turns, this is the major reason our tours go anticlockwise in a circle around the Cotswolds, visiting the following places, Windsor and Windsor Great Park, Oxford, Blenheim Palace, Shakespeare’s Stratford, Highclere Castle (Downton Abbey), Bath, Stonehenge and the Cotswolds.
