Holiday Information

This is another one of our road cycling weekends in the UK designed to give experience to those who are trying road cycling for the first time. They are also a perfect way to rekindle your love for riding if you've been off your road bike for a while.
This weekend offers 2 great days of cycling in the Lake District designed to gently ease you into the excitement of riding on the open road. If you’ve ever wanted to know what it’s like cruising through the countryside on a modern lightweight bike, this weekend is for you.
Our weekends have been designed to provide a taste of what you might expect on our longer tours. Whilst the terrain and distances we ride may not be extreme, we do aim to introduce riders to a full range of riding experiences - so don’t be expecting 2 days of pancake flat roads! Where’s the fun in that anyway?
Enjoy the thrills of descending, experience the camaraderie of bunch riding and test your legs on the odd ‘cheeky climb’ or two. This introductory weekend, based around the quiet country lanes of arguably one of the most alluring and mountainous regions in the UK, is a great mini adventure. It is also an excellent way to meet new riding buddies!
Our experienced and fully qualified guides will be on hand to guide you through the tricky sections helping you to develop your abilities and improve your bike handling skills. For those cyclists who want to try something a bit more demanding then we have a range of more challenging road cycling weekends in the Yorkshire Dales, North Wales, Northumberland and the Lake District too.
Each of our road weekends are kept specifically small at between 6 to 14 riders enabling us to cater for different fitness and riding experience levels within the group. If you don't have a bike (or simply don't fancy washing it at the end of the weekend!), then we've got good quality bikes for hire. We'll even put on your own special weekend if there is a group of you and our dates just don't fit!
