About the Biking

There are 6 days of biking and 1 day of hiking on your visit to the United Kingdom. You will have a hybrid or mountain bike, and we include a helmet, fenders, bell, tail light, pump and lock. Your bike guide will assist should there be any repairs needed along the way.

Rides range from 25-45 kilometers per day (15 to 28 miles), and are considered “easy to moderate” in regard to hills. The majority are on bike paths and at times we will ride on lightly traveled roads. Travel will be at a comfortable pace. If you are not a biker, it would be a good idea to ride some beforehand in accordance with these specifications.
