Details:

We feel that the best cycling adventure is one that is free to develop as you go, giving you what’s required for a real sense of adventure: the unknown. This is why our bikepacking escapes are self-guided. If you’re at all unsure about what’s what then we’d strongly recommend first taking part in one of our Introductory Courses then moving on to self-guided trips.

On your self-guided escape we’ll do all of the legwork in putting together a route, plan and equipment you need for your self guided bikepacking expedition. We’ll work with you beforehand to arrange the best kind of route to suit your group’s needs, fitness level experience. At the start of your adventure we’ll meet you to and brief you on the route and set you up with your bike, luggage and equipment making sure everything’s sorted before you go. We’ll also provide a backup service to help you out should you have any problems so all you have to do is turn up.

Our custom routes are easy to follow at your own pace using annotated route maps (containing our best recommendations of local places to stop at) and our range of cycle mounted GPS navigation units that work like your car’s sat-nav so that you never miss a turn.
