  •   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.

  •   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)
