Alfresco Adventures offers guided mountain biking and road cycling in the Yorkshire Dales, North Yorkshire Moors and the Lake District. We also offer road cycling events such as London to Paris, Leeds to Amsterdam for small to large groups.
Cycling is an adrenaline fueled, fast paced activity on and off road suitable for individuals to large groups. The Yorkshire Dales, North Yorkshire Moors and the Lake District offers some of the most stunning scenery in the North of England, many of the trails and roads are quiet and away from crowded areas.
A days guided cycling is perfect for getting the family together, celebrating a birthday, as a stag or hen party or just wanting to discover the best trails or roads. We take the stress out of navigating, meaning you can enjoy your ride without the worry of getting lost. We plan rides that are suitable to the ability of the group, whether it’s to explore the local area in an alternative way, develop technical skills, explore the single track or to climb some of the classic hills like the Buttertubs Pass (stage 1 of the 2014 Tour de France) or the Hardknott Pass in the Lake District which is one of Britain’s top 10 toughest road cycling climbs. Our one day rides vary in distance, terrain, time and most tend to end up with a café or pub stop for lunch.
Clients must have basic cycling experience and are suitable for the ages of 12 upwards depending on the location.
All our guides hold either the Cycling Touring Club (CTC) Technical Mountain Bike Leader Award, British Cycling Level 3 Leadership Award or the Mountain Bike Leader Award (MBLA) and have lots of local knowledge and experience in mountain biking and road cycling.
Bike hire is available at £40 per full day per day and a support vehicle can be added to any road cycling trip at an additional cost.
