This cycling tour genuinely made our trip to Bath! We both work at desk jobs all day and aren't particularly fit but any nerves about big hills were unnecessary, the ride was mostly flat, gentle and easy with a couple of hills but nothing we really struggled with! Wayne was incredibly knowledgeable about the local area, led the tour at our own pace and looked after us all very well. The tour goes along the canal path and through the beautiful countryside before back into the city with lots of stops on the way, lots of info and history around where you are and what you're seeing. As it was our first morning in Bath it was a great way to get our bearings before spending a few days exploring ourselves. Loved it, would recommend to anyone visiting!

Really good tour, much better than we expected. Seemed to be biking for miles far away from Bath, but realised it was a big loop! Scenery was outstanding. Well worth doing. Thanks Darroch

Date of cycle tour 29/09/20 We fancied doing something other than walking around Bath so chose the cycle tour and it was probably one if the best things we did. It did help that the sun was out. Darroch was interesting and informative and took time to chat to everyone in the group. Great route along the canal and then the longest cycle tunnel ever, very cool literally. Would definitely recommend doing the tour. You don’t need to be super fit as most is on flat paths.

Such an enjoyable morning exploring the countryside around Bath. The scenery was stunning, Wayne was so knowledgeable and keen to share information about the area and we felt like we’d achieved something active after a gentle 20km on the bike. Definitely recommend to anyone wanting to explore the local area!
