We recommend you are moderately fit and capable of cycling 40 miles per day. Expect some hillier sections as we cross the Chiltern Hills and North Wessex Downs. We'll ride at a relaxed pace with plenty of breaks to recharge, refuel and be merry and our lovely guides are there to support all riders, fast or slow.


What the red fox says: "Magnificent rolling hills, two of my favourite and most idyllic campsites (seriously, they are wonderful) and cracking country pubs!"
Listening to your feedback, we know you see a festival ride as 'an extended holiday', an experience in its own right much more than just a healthy, sustainable way to journey to the festival.
The London to WOMAD ride is unique in that London and Malmesbury are connected almost exclusively by National Parks (like the Chiltern Hills and the Wessex Downs), local parks (like Windsor Great Park) and well surfaced riverside paths (like the Jubilee River and the Thames Path). So expect magnificent views, quiet country lanes and a proper countryside 'escape'.
