Slow down the pace and enjoy local west country vibes on this relaxed 2 day weekend cycling adventure

Starting (and ending) in the historic Georgian city of Bath, experience the rolling hills and sleepy villages of rural Somerset, sample the region’s famous cider and take in the wonderful iconic sights of Glastonbury Tor and Cheddar Gorge. Camp out under the stars and enjoy a delicious dinner and a few thirst-quenching cervezas from the Mexican street food truck (yes, really) at our unique organic campsite.

        The experience

        A fully guided, fully-supported, 2 day cycle experience in Somerset.

        A moderate physical challenge (think relaxed cycling with 2 or 3 heart-raising hill climbs each day).

        Keep an eye out for feral goats as you glide down the winding road between the limestone cliffs of Cheddar Gorge. 

        ‘Put hairs on your chest’ as you sample the region’s famous tipple at one of the most authentic cider mills in the country (no Somerset experience would be complete without it).

        Clamber up to the iconic Glastonbury Tor and take in the spectacular vista over the surrounding landscape. 

        Wild camp at the tranquil Bobsfield Campsite with views to the nearby Tor (tents, air mats, travel pillows and camping chairs all set up and provided by us).

        On Saturday evening relax with a beer or glass of wine and gorge yourself on authentic Mexican street food in our own exclusive fire-lit Cantina.

        Enjoy a hearty Sunday roast of locally sourced ingredients in a historic village pub.

        Return to Bath in spectacular fashion through the Combe Down Tunnel, the longest cycling and walking tunnel in the UK.
