Cycle The City was founded on a passion for both bicycles and Bristol.

Bristol’s a city made for cyclists, with an extensive network of safe cycle paths that will take you along beautiful landscapes, hidden viewpoints, brilliant pubs, and the nearby countryside.

And that’s just what we’ve been doing since 2012, with an ever-growing fleet of Temple cycles and team of enthusiastic guides and friends. We’ve met people from all around the world who’ve come to discover Bristol by bike, and continued to create new tours and new cycle concepts.

You can find us at No.1 Harbourside, a lovely cafe-bar down in the docks and a lovely spot to have a coffee, study your maps, and set off from. On weekends we’re nestled in amongst Bristol’s vibrant Harbourside Market—a great spot to grab lunch and have a look through the stalls before you ride.

  •   An excellent way to discover a different side of Bristol. We were met by Charlie who took us on bike friendly paths around the harbour area into places we would not have seen or found on our own. Bikes were in very good condition, light & easy to handle for all levels of rider. Charlie is an excellent guide passes on his local knowledge with a friendly easy going manner. Thank you Charlie for a very enjoyable afternoon.

  •   I organised a sightseeing cycle tour around Bristol for a group of 19 for my office team day. Luckily the weather was amazing, but the tour was informative, fun and everyone had a great time! Fairly flat apart from some cobbles, and everyone was able to keep up regardless of ability. Thanks!!

  •   Brilliant! Our tour guide Charlie was knowledgeable and lead us smoothly, safely and entertainingly around some fascinating parts of Bristol -food places I'd been told about but never actually found before. The sun shone and the food was delicious and filling.
