Ride Description

A sensational ride between the capitals of England and Scotland.  We will spend our days on country lanes and in fields and woods that cover much of this ancient land.  It’s not all rural though, as the route is designed for us to spend nights in some of Britain's great historic cities such as Cambridge, Lincoln, and York. 

We will have a relaxed start to this tour with two nights in London, allowing participants to get settled in, recover from jet lag, and perhaps see something of the city.  On day three we mount our steeds and leave London primarily on traffic free bike and canal paths.  Once in the country, participants will delight in the variety and beauty of the English landscape.  We’ll take advantage of dedicated cycle paths and rail trails in the cities and towns with riverside and canal paths.  With modest cycling mileage on many days, we’ll have time to visit Gothic cathedrals and 11th century castles in our overnight locations. 

About halfway through our tour, we take a rest day in city of York for sightseeing.  You’ll be able to step back into the Middle Ages by wandering through “The Shambles”, one of the UK’s most historic and picturesque locations featuring overhanging timber-framed houses and traditional shopfronts.  Perhaps you’ll prefer to visit York Minster, one of the world’s most magn… (Join People Cycling to read more)

People Cycling's Ride Rating

People Cycling has four categories for our rides – Easy, Moderate, Difficult, and Challenging. It should be somewhat obvious what these categories mean, but please become familiar with the elevations and distances that define them:

Easy rides are under 30mi/48km in average distance and 1600ft/500m in average elevation
Moderate rides are over the Easy rating but under 50mi/80km and 2460ft/750m
Difficult rides are as over the Moderate rating but under 75mi/120km and 3280/1000m
Anything over the Difficult rating

NOTE: This is not a strict guideline. There could be rides that have a day or two where the average elevation or distance exceeds the values given above. These anomalies should be outlined in the ride description. It is recommended that you read it carefully.

About People Cycling

People Cycling is a bicycle touring club, which you can join for free. We offer Domestic and International Cycling Tours which are led by volunteer Ride Leaders. Our tours are made up of a small group of participants (typically 15-20 or so) who want to ride an average of 30 to 55 miles a day over a one or two week period in interesting regions of the world. Our tours range in price from frugal getaways to luxurious adventures. We travel road, gravel, or mountain bike styles, and all bicycle types – including e-bikes, recumbents, and tandems are typically allowed.

Our ride leaders are volunteers and do not financially profit on tours they lead. They are also given broad discretion on how to lead their tours, and we consider them our greatest asset.

People Cycling tours are operated at cost or at lower cost (as negotiated by our ride leaders) than individuals can obtain on commercial tours. Within the cost of a tour, there is a nominal fee to support club operations and provide tools to ride leaders to manage their rides.
