A great way to see another side of Bath outside of the city itself. The countryside is lovely and it was so peaceful to cycle along the canal and disused Combe Down railway tunnel. There's also a lot of history in the landscape surrounding Bath and Darroch was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was also v helpful in suggesting places to eat and visit. Great cafe stop en route . What else can I say other than if you go to Bath and can ride a bike, do make time to fit this in, you won't regret it!

Great bike tour mostly along the Kennet and Avon canal. Some uphill bits but mainly flat . The tunnel is a mile long and is a very interesting experience. Excellent communication from hosts which is great as google maps will take you to the wrong place !

We were on a five day break in the area, and this experience absolutely made our trip! It was good to be out in the fresh air, taking exercise in such a beautiful location. Darroch was extremely passionate and knowledgeable about the nature along the canal path and in the stunning surrounding countryside. Also the history of the buildings in Bath and the surrounding area. We would never have done this on our own, we wouldn’t know where to start. The bikes are great and of a high standard, and the groups are kept small which means everyone benefits from all the interesting facts you learn along the way. We would highly recommend this tour, and would encourage anyone to support this unique and professional company!
