WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT THIS TRIP?

In 2016, Rich (the red fox) and partner Tui packed the panniers and made the epic 150 mile journey from London over the rolling hills of the Chilterns, the North Wessex Downs and through the rural lanes of Somerset to Glastonbury. They loved it so much Rich decided to launch Red Fox Cycling in 2017, an initiative aimed at getting music festival audiences to abandon their cars in favour of bicycles.
Red Fox Cycling now runs organised, guided, group cycle rides to 14 (and growing) UK-based music festivals. But Glastonbury is our first love and, for the first time in 2021, we'll be running a guided, supported cycle ride from London to Glastonbury.
Essentially, we'll do all the hard work so you can enjoy the ride! We'll have a support vehicle to carry your festival kit, serve up tasty roadside snacks & drinks and provide mechanical support. We'll have guides to navigate, so no need to worry about planning your own route. We'll cycle as a group so you can make some new festival buddies. We'll organise overnight stays in two gorgeous woodland campsites en route. We'll even provide breakfast and lunch each day and organise group dinners in a local country pub or a campsite BBQ each evening. All you need to do is turn up and have fun.
