ITINERARY

* Please do get in touch for bespoke dates but note we're sold out for now

This weekend offers the perfect intro to bikepacking but experienced bikepackers are of course welcome too.

The vibe of this one is 'enjoy not endure'. We'll be recharging in nature and enjoying the rides as opposed to punishing ourselves on a weekend sweatfest.

The route normally take between 6 and 8 hours so we have lots of time to explore but also enjoy coffee, cake, and lunch.

SATURDAY - DAY 1 INTRO TO BIKEPACKING ADVENTURE

We'll meet at 9am (but you can arrive from 8am if you're a keen bean) for a quick intro to the weekend ahead and a chance to meet the group with plenty of time for any questions.

By 10am we'll be getting you set up on your bike, checking all your bags, and helmet before heading out to hit the trails at 10.30am.

After a good few hours in the saddle we'll take you to one of our favourite spots to stop for a spot of lunch and coffee/tea.

Suitably fuelled, we'll then head back out heading for the trails passing rolling hills and heading deep into God's Country before stopping to make camp at around 7pm. We'll teach you everything you need to know about campcraft - how and where to camp, cooking, and other top tips we've learned over the years.

Bellies filled, we'll hit the hay and spend the night under the stars.

SUNDAY - DAY 2 INTRO TO BIKEPACKING ADVENTURE

To ensure we make the most of the day, we'll be up to watch the sunrise before breaky at 7am (or just hobble over when grubs up if you're not a morning person).

By 9am we'll be all packed up and ready to start our ride.

You'll have the next few hours to really get into the swing of bikepacking as we pedal our favourite routes away from the crowds.

Next up, you guessed it, lunch at another cafe or pub depending on where we get to.

We've then got a few more hours riding until we get back to HQ at around 4pm ready to head home at 5pm

Epic hassle free adventure weekend in the bag. Get booking.

What Adventurers are Saying

This was one of those weekends away that leaves you buzzing for days afterwards with memories of all the fun, challenging and unfamiliar things encountered along the way! Thanks

As a team of six we travelled the Cotswold's taking in the scenic views and coffee shops. Rode by the canal and many streams on the journey that made us feel like we had left the UK for a uninhabited land. Would fully recommend that all try the weekend, his knowledge of the outdoors opened our eyes to a whole new world. Shame to come back to work on Monday.

James, Bikepacking Cotswolds

I had a fantastic weekend soaking up what the Cotswold has to offer - made special by the Bikepacking experience! They had a fantastic route north through the Cotswold through bridle paths and empty roads (perfect for novice cyclists). I am a keen cyclist (road and MTB) and was certainly challenged - what the Cotswold lacks in elevation it makes up for in steepness. The best thing was of course the guide who had great knowledge of history, natural history, Bath and Cotswold. Next best thing was ease of travelling from London, only 3hrs total from the SE15.

Cal, Bikepacking Cotswolds

Our bike packing weekend with our guide was a truly memorable experience. As relative newbies to mountain biking, and with no previous experience of bivouacking, we decided to take a chance on combining the two to have a bit of an adventure. He taught us a lot about both, and we felt in very safe hands. The bikes and the gear he provided were first rate, and we had a great time.

FOOD & ACCOMMODATION

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
