Welcome to Charlie’s Cyclorambles

So, what are we all about? Well we are a bike touring company that runs 1, 2, and 3 day fully supported (see the FAQs) bike tours through the glorious Wiltshire, Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Dorset (and beyond!) countryside for people that don’t really do bike touring!

Our tours are all about getting out and about in the countryside, visiting interesting places and seeing interesting things - all by bike. We are not into lycra, and we are certainly not into cycling hundreds of miles a day. Our 2 and 3 day tours are generally around 30-40 miles a day (yes – you will be able to do that) of gentle cycling. Our 1 day tours are generally a little less than that.

Our routes stick to quiet country lanes and back roads with very light traffic, and the occasional section of very gentle (and not muddy) off-road riding. Oh and we absolutely guarantee – no mountains!

You ride at your own pace, and we actively encourage you to stop whenever you like to see things and have a good look around – this is what a cycloramble is all about.

What if you don’t have a bike? No problem, we can provide one (see the FAQ).

What if you are not an experienced cyclist? Good – you’re perfect for us. You don’t have to be a regular or experienced cyclist to enjoy our tours. You just have to be somebody who likes being out and about and who quite fancies the idea of seeing the world from the seat of a bike.

For all our tours we plan the routes, move any luggage you might have, provide all your refreshments on the road, and provide help if you break down. All you have to do is ride the bike!

Only free on the weekend? Perfect

We plan the routes and give you detailed guidance on how to find your way, and provide tips for interesting things to stop and see and do on the way…and for the keen ones we can provide some options for extending your ride each day. We even meet up with you on the route and provide you with mid-morning refreshments, lunch and mid-afternoon refreshments (cake:)).

So – what now? Well, why not have a look at our tours and see if anything is of interest to you. If you want to know more you could have a look at our FAQs - or just get in touch with us at enquiries@Charliescyclorambles.co.uk

If you want something a bit longer or maybe have another route in mind then please let us know. We are quite happy to design a tour around your needs – just talk to us about what it is you want.

1 day guided tours?

If you would like to organise a fun day out exploring the countryside on bike with a group of your friends or family then you might want to think about our 1 day guided tours.

We do not offer any public schedule for these tours. Instead we schedule them to meet the needs of your group.

We also tailor the ride itself to meet the needs of your group – i.e. what things you would like to see, how far you would like to ride etc. Typically these will involve 20-30 miles of cycling exploring the countryside and sights around Marlborough and Avebury or Salisbury and Stonehenge, or the Cotswolds. When we do have a different finishing point from where we started we will use the sag wagon to transport everybody back to the start point at the end of the day.

As with all of our tours we stick to carefully planned routes that use back roads and country lanes with very little traffic. We provide morning and afternoon refreshments and lunch on the road.

Unlike our 2 and 3 day tours the 1 day guided tours are (as the name suggests) guided. What that means is that somebody will ride along with the group showing the way and also pointing and explaining things of interest along the way.

Some people are worried that they won’t be able to keep us when riding as a group. But this is never a problem. We always ensure the pace we travel at is comfortable for everybody – and anyways half the pleasure of days like this is the feeling of riding along with a group of friends!

We look forward to hearing from you.
Charlie (the bike rambler)
