Join one of our tour guides and pedal your way from Colchester to Manchester, via Chesterfield. Spread over 4 days (travel back day 5), you’ll complete a total distance of 260 miles with a total ascent of 2,575 meters.
The tour takes in the most incredible countryside views and manages to avoid all main roads, with the exception of crossing over a few, and entering into towns and city centres.
Plus, raise funds for your chosen charity!
Every week we run local guided cycle tours at 50, 70 and 90 miles around Essex and Suffolk, all starting off and finishing in Colchester. All tours take in the most stunning scenery the local area has to offer, cycling only on country roads. We, of course include the best coffee stops!
For riders of moderate experience and fitness, with average speeds of 10 - 14mph. No one gets left behind!
No rides take in the same roads*, destinations or coffee stops. In that respect, each ride is unique.
*(Except for entering and exiting Colchester).
A beautiful ride with views of rolling hills, amazing scenery and wide open vistas. This is countryside close to home but it somehow remained undiscovered by me, until now. I had no idea! Thanks for finding it for us Steve.
An extremely well run and planned tour! It was great to go out with a group on an organised tour. Fantastic coffee stops too!! It made me feel safe and more confident to go out on my own on longer rides in future, now I know I can do it!
I had no idea there was so much amazing countryside so close to home, and how far you can travel on quiet country lanes without going on any main roads at all. A brilliantly mapped route Steve!
