Overview

The Cotswolds is a scenic part of England & it's my pleasure to share these sights & heritage with you. You will be using high end performance electric bicycles which can easily cycle up the hilly terrain and this makes for an active day cycling without breaking a sweat! We stick to quieter roads to get off the beaten path, cycling through some of the most beautiful scenery.

The majority of these tours are private group bookings but if two groups book the same date, then there may be up to 5 persons maximum on a tour.

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: North Leigh Roman Villa, East End, Witney OX29 6PZ England

We will stop here for a brief visit to see the ruins of the sizeable Roman villa. This part of England also has many roads built on what were originally Roman roads. This site is free entry and it's about 4 miles cycle from our start point.

Duration: 20 minutes

Pass By: Crawley, Crawley, West Sussex, England

Crawley is just one of several very picturesque little villages of hamlets which we pass through on the route. You can see many gorgeous traditional Cotswolds stone cottages and quaint gardens in these villages.

Pass By: Wilcote, Chipping Norton OX7 3EA, UK

This is another scenic village we may pass through. If needed for a drink or a lunch stop, Wilcote also has a pub.

Stop At: Minster Lovell, Minster Lovell, Witney, Oxfordshire, England

You can see some truly beautifully preserved cottage lanes here and there is also the option to stop for drinks or lunch here too but the main attraction is the ruins of the medieval Minster Lovell manor home and priory.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Burford, Burford, Cotswolds, England

Burford is commonly known as, 'the gateway to the Cotswolds', thanks partly to its location and to its very historic high street. In fact, this village has appeared in several historic tv dramas on BBC TV.

Burford has lots of cafes and shops and we could stop here for afternoon tea, if desired.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Swinbrook, Swinbrook, Burford, Cotswolds, England

Another very scenic location for a small village

It was too wet and rainy for the bike tour so our guide took us in his car. It was EXCELLENT. He was very knowlegable, friendly and a great way to spend a reainy English day.

We spent a month working in Oxford, from the States, and so I splurged for my teenage son and friend, 18 and 16. They loved it. Nadine was their guide. My 18 yr old sent a text on way back, in the taxi: “that was honestly the best bike trip i’ve ever done, thank you so much for that mom! you really hit the jackpot on this one”

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our time with Alasdair who took us on this tour. Given that our time in Cotswold was short (2 days), this tour checked all the boxes for us : 1) affable and knowledgeable guide (Alasdair) to show us around the villages, country lanes, and ruins 2) the flexible itinerary was good as it meant that we could stop wherever and whenever we wanted, and there was no time pressure - we could explore each site where we stopped at our pace 3) we get to see some pretty amazing sights that we would have missed had we been just driving around 4) getting around on the e-bikes was ideal for this type of terrain (up and down slopes); we get to exercise a bit but at the same time not over-exert 5) this type of tour is weather dependent and we were blessed to have a mainly sunny ride throughout the day in Spring

Did this tour as part of a trip to Oxford with my husband and our two little ones (8 and 12) - was a little concerned about their stamina for the cycling but our guide (Alasdair?) was happy to take it slow for us and all had a lovely time! Lovely day out, beautiful views and we now all know a lot more about the Cotswalds for sure!
