These are circular rides of between 8 and 25 miles which are within the battery capacity of our electric bikes and which follow the quietest roads with the most stunning views. Each hire point will be able to loan you maps for the routes appropriate to their location, and you can also download them.

For linear routes and multi-day trips, please contact any of the hire points for further information and they will be happy to advise. We can arrange for bike delivery/pick-up to/from your departure/arrival points (at additional cost).
