Cyclists love the Cotswolds, with its beautiful views and winding lanes edged with drystone walls and abundance of wildlife.

There are plenty of facilities with pretty village pubs and tearooms and a wide range of cycle routes to suit all ages and abilities.

The Cotswolds, the UK’s largest designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offers rides to suit all levels, whether your idea of heaven is heavy breathing up steep slopes or pedalling along leafy lanes anticipating the mouth-watering pub lunch en route.

One of the Cotswolds greatest secrets is how good the area is for off road cycling with a network of good tracks designated as byways and bridleways making off road cycling one of the best ways to discover the area. This is the way to discover the secret hidden places inaccessible to cars.

It is possible to book a guided cycling tour for a couple of hours or a day, or as part of an organised holiday where your luggage is transported separately and overnight accommodation arranged.
