Frequently asked questions about our United Kingdom cycling tours
How challenging are your UK cycling tours?
Our United Kingdom cycling holidays vary in difficulty from Moderate to Challenging. The classic Coast to Coast Cycling Tour
averages 75km per day so is better suited to more experienced riders, but our Hadrian's Wall Coast to Coast Cycling Trip
takes a more leisurely pace with 39km per day. We grade all of our cycling trips to help you select the best route for your experience and ability - take a look at our Cycling Grades
page to find out more.
What bikes do you use on your UK cycling tours?
We will give you a 24-gear Giant Escape 2 unisex hybrid bike to ride. This is included in the cost of your cycling trip. We'll match the frame size to your height and help you to make adjustments for a good and comfortable fit before you set off. We'll also provide an 18-litre pannier and a bottle cage, and if you want to bring your own pedals and saddle we can fit those for you too. For a little bit of extra power up the steep hills of the North Pennines, an electric bike
(or e-bike) can be hired for an additional fee.
Are your United Kingdom cycling tours suitable for solo travellers?
Yes, absolutely! All of our small group cycling holidays in the UK are ideal for solo cyclists. Almost half of all the people who join our cycling holidays do so alone, so you'll be joining lots of like-minded adventurers. Take a look at our Guide to Travelling Solo
to find out more.
