Nottingham Cycle Tours is run by local people, set up to provide guided cycle tours in and around the city of Nottingham for businesses (team building/staff social), tourists, students or residents alike. We cater for teenage children upwards with basic cycling competence. Our tours are typically 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.
We provide corporate events, ranging from 'spinning the legs'/get some exercise, staff socials, through to more structured team building events, based around orienteering/team building activities. We weave this 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, including bike hire (we work in partnership with www.russellsbicycleshed.co.uk). We are fully insured and are first aid trained.

Leen Cycling/Nottingham Cycle Tours is very much about getting residents out on bikes, either under your own steam or on an electric bike. It's great for your physical and mental health, and it reduces air pollution, what's not to like? We organise and run British Cycling Guided Rides, once or twice per month all year around - Saturday mornings (and Thursday evenings during the summer). See the British Cycling Lets Ride website and search Nottingham (click here)
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 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. Tours such as Newcastle to Carlisle via Edinburgh and Glasgow, including rest days. North Coast 500, components of National Cycle Route Route 1 - Dover to John O'Groats, to name a few. Please enquire if you would like to join us for part or all of this tour. 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, our updates, and additional tours as our 2 day weekend excursions are generally planned at shorter notice. See our Facebook (click here) and Instagram (click here) pages for a taste of this type of tour.
Our principle business is corporate events all year around. Our tourist/visitor tours are only available on set dates, unless there is an individual group of 6 or more people.
