Nottingham Cycle Tours is a local company run by local people, set up to provide guided cycle tours in and around the city of Nottingham. We cater for teenage children upwards with basic cycling competence. Our tours are 90% off road and offer a unique and fun way to really get to know our city. Our guides will highlight the key landmarks to help our customers understand the city’s rich, and sometimes dark, history through the ages.

If you have a specific requirement for a route (hilly, flat, waterside, 95% off road, fast/testing, a specific A-B-A, night rides etc) then please get in touch as we are happy to design a route as we have detailed knowledge of cycle ways and routes all over the city. We can also tailor tours for specific topics (rebels, inventors, old railway routes, including hidden tunnels and former stations). Please enquire.
We provide corporate events, ranging from 'spinning the legs/get some exercise, through to more structured team building events, based around orienteering/team building activities, weaved in with our local knowledge, using mainly off road routes. We typically finish at a cafe/pub/restaurant. We can plan a bespoke package, and manage all the logistics. We are fully insured and are first aid trained.
We typically do 2-10 day long distance tours around the UK 6-7 times per year, enjoying the amazing countryside and cities of the UK. In May we rode from Newcastle to Carlisle via Edinburgh and Glasgow, including rest days. Our next planned tour will see us ride from Cardiff to Holyhead, from the south to the north of Wales, in mid September. We can also tailor a bespoke route to suit your plans, whether your destinations are 50 miles or 300 miles apart, we can tie them together for you. We can provide a competitive price for your specific needs, including transport, hotels and other general logistics to make your tour as smooth, enjoyable and as hassle free as possible. Please contact us for any of your route ideas, updates, and additional tours as our 2 day weekend excursions are generally planned at shorter notice.
