Cycling around the UK is a great way to experience some of the countries most beautiful scenery, at any pace you wish!
In the north of the country, a range of routes are available within the circular cycle ways of the Cumbria and Lancashire Cycleway. The latter offers a 260-mile challenge, with a range of varying routes to suit all, but each one taking you through several areas of outstanding natural beauty, such as the Forest of Bowland and the Arnside and Silverdale coast.
The Lake District attracts families looking for an enjoyable day out cycling along the woodland tracks, as well as inviting those who want a challenging ride up and down some steep climbs and descents, set back in a picturesque landscape. Families can also enjoy some of the rides set in the southern countryside, following peaceful lanes and canal tracks in Rural Rides No. 1-West Surrey and No. 2-East Surrey.
For a longer cycling tour, Lands End to John O’Groats can be completed in a couple of weeks and allows you to view much of Britain’s dramatic and varied scenery.
Our cycling guides each offer a variety of routes, both on and off road and suit a range of people and cycling abilities.
