Multi day trips designed for you

 

The Gentle Cycling Company are your local specialists in "peace of mind" self-guided cycling tours on the Great Taste Trail. Our standard trips have a daily gentle cycling distance of around 30 km a day. These trips can be cycled just the way they are, or customised to suit you. All-inclusive package prices are shown for each trip, including bike hire, accommodation, all passenger and luggage transfers, personalised trip notes and a detailed pre-departure briefing. If you prefer to go freedom, you can just hire the bikes, with or without panniers. We are also specialists in electric bike trips on the Great Taste Trail.
