Our Tour Grading Sysem.
Choosing the correct tour level is made easier by using our grading system below to assist with helping you choose your cycling tour. We also offer coaching packages to help you achieve your goals.
For those new to cycling who can ride a bike and are aspiring to do something challenging. These are gently undulating rides and can be done with an electric or non-electric bike as the aim is to enjoy the outdoors on a relaxed tour.
Flat and undulating at times. We enjoy the best British cycle routes with some short sections of climbing. A great tour for an electric bike or a cyclist that wants some but not too much challenge. If you can cycle 40 miles then this is for you.
For regular cyclists who enjoy regular cycling whether training indoor or outside. We include some free sessions on the fundamentals of riding safely with coaching on areas such as descents and cadence. Enjoy half day of cycling with fun stops and site seeing.
For those that want a challenge. You are most likely to be a regular cyclist who is possibly a club member. You may have ridden a sportive event or triathlon and now want to do something amazing in Britain. These routes provide a challenge to complete climbs and steep descents. A real challenge of 60 – 100 miles per day.
Designed for the cyclist who is fit and experienced. These tours involve completing several challenging days. You will need to be able to do 125 miles a day with 3500m of ascent and similar for several days.
