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.

  •   Me and my boyfriend went on a Women of Bristol cycle tour, which was really good fun. Our guide Holly was charming and funny, and we went to some lovely bits of Bristol (the docks by the harbour, the banks of the Avon, Queen's Square).

    We learnt about some unsung Bristol Heroines and their achievements- did you know Sarah Guppy was responsible for engineering some key elements of the Clifton suspension bridge?! We live in Bristol, but went to some places we'd never been before and really enjoyed it. Bikes are good quality too :o)

  •   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.
