Tailor Made Self-Guided Holiday

Door-to-door luggage transfer, routes and maps, bike friendly accommodation.

We can arrange a cycling holiday to suit you or your group and will take out all the stress by finding suitable quiet routes, arranging accommodation in small hotels, friendly farmhouses or B&B’s and provide door to door transfer of your luggage. There will be somewhere to store your bike overnight and the accommodation will either provide food in the evening or be close by to a pub or restaurant.  

We have two National Parks both within a few miles of each other – the Lake District National Park, now a World Heritage Site and the Yorkshire Dales National Park, both very different areas of outstanding natural beauty.

It’s up to you how long you want your holiday to be, whether you just want to ‘pootle’ for a few hours each day enjoying the views around every corner or you wish to climb every pass in the Lake District with rest days in between. Just let us know how many days you want your holiday to be, an idea of how many hours cycling you envisage doing each day, any non-cycling days and we’ll get back in touch to fully discuss your holiday plans.

“We did not know what to expect as we booked via email from the States. John met us at Oxenholme Station and took us to his home which was to be our base for 4 nights. The bikes were superb road bikes which John fitted to our size, one a titanium men’s bike and the other a ladies carbon bike. Wow, after riding mountain bikes on the road these bikes are really fast and comfy on the road.

We had 3 days touring with John in the South Lake District before setting out for 3 days in the Yorkshire Dales, self guided from supplied instructions and maps. It rained, the sun shone, we went up hills and down Dales, what terrific scenery everywhere.

The itinerary John had planned was perfect – not too hard and not too easy for a couple of relatively unfit Americans. We had dinner on farms and ate their home grown lamb, we ate out in the local pubs, and our bags were transported from place to place. Finally John came to collect us and our bags and we had a final ride and a calm sunny afternoon, around Coniston Water. What a perfect way to end a splendid weeks cycling in the Lakes.”
