This trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
To complete this trip, it is important that you are both confident and competent in riding a bicycle.
While the cycling distances on this trip are relatively short, the stunning terrain of the Cotswolds is at times hilly so you’ll need a good level of fitness to enjoy the trip.
On this trip we have a single leader that rides with the group.
As our riding is done on a mix of sealed roads and gravel cycle paths/tracks a reasonable level of cycling skill is required.
As accommodation on this trip is multi-share, single travellers will share a room with another traveller of the same gender. This trip is a great opportunity to get to know other like-minded people, so embrace it while you can. If you’d prefer not to share, a single room supplement may be available at an additional charge. Ask your travel consultant for more details, and please note that in some hotels a single supplement exclusion applies where single rooms are not available.
