Please note – You can now book and pay via Eventbrite. This payment is fully refundable if national restrictions to deal with covid-19 require us to cancel the class. 

Our tutors all have personal experience of long distance touring in a wide variety of environments, including Lands End to John o’Groats, C2C as well as many locations across the world.  Past students have cycled UK to Turkey, a general European tour as well as several trekking east/west and north/south in North America and a pair to China.

This course is very hands-on, so it can be a good idea to bring your own bike to work on.  We can provide bike for you during the course, but you must email us a week in advance using the contact form below, requesting a bike to work on.
