They can be local or a bit further afield if you’d like to be more adventurous. Simply Cycling will meet you at a pre-arranged location and bring bikes that all the family will be able to ride or be supported to ride – including wheelchair accessible bikes, family cargo bikes, tag-along trikes, tandems, etc, as well as ordinary two wheeled bikes.

The aim is to get the whole family out and about in the fresh air and in local places of interest and beauty. You’ll ride for a while and then stop for a picnic or snacks and continue the ride or return to the meeting point.

These weekday cycles are available through August.

Booking is essential.
