What you'll do

Master the art of riding a Victorian era bicycle on a tour through a World Heritage Site. After meeting us at The Circus, BA1 2EU, we will introduce you to the Penny Farthing bicycle, provide you with safety equipment including helmets and let you know what you will be doing during the experience. Then we will head out onto the streets where you will learn to safely mount, ride and dismount.
Keen to ride more? After a short coffee break, we will head out on a leisurely guided journey around central Bath, past many iconic locations such as the Royal Crescent, Queen Square, Pulteney Bridge, Bath Abbey and of course the Roman Baths. After a short photo stop we will then roll on back to The Circus and return to the present day!

IMPORTANT NOTE: This sporting experience is physically demanding and therefore only recommended for people with a reasonable level of fitness and agility.
Other things to note
This is one of those "once in a lifetime" experiences. Treat yourself or a keen cycling loved one to a completely unique challenge.
