Absolutely, all you have to do is let us know about your diet in advance. Some of the places we visit are quite small so it helps them if they can be prepared for you. If you are vegetarian, vegan or have any other dietary requirements we’ll do our best to make sure you eat well with us.
Our support vehicle travels along with us at all times, so if you do hurt yourself, you can rest up in the van until you are ready to get back in the saddle again. If it is something more serious we will take to you to the nearest medical centre to patch you up.
If it is just a light shower we usually press on – a little rain can actually be quite cooling on a summer’s day. If the weather is really bad we may opt to travel in the support vehicle, or shelter in a pub until it passes.
All luggage is transferred between your accommodation in our support vehicle. All you will need to carry is a daypack with your essentials in it.
Breakfast and dinner are included in the price. You will just need to pay for lunch, which is usually at a lovely country pub, and any little snacks that take your fancy.
We provide bikes from Giant and all the cycling equipment you will need. You will want to bring a small backpack to carry the essentials and wear layers that are comfortable for cycling. Accommodation, breakfast, dinner and sightseeing tickets are also part of the price.
We do bike checks every morning before setting off. We always have a bike mechanic on hand. We’ll be able to take care of any minor issues, change your tyres as required and get you back on the road swiftly.
No. You need to know how to ride a bike confidently but that is about it. We try to put people of a similar ability on a tour together. Most of the roads we travel along are not challenging – you’ll have to go up a few gentle hills but we are happy to go at a pace that suits you. With more than one guide on the tour, the group can always split up if some want to take it a bit slower.
