As active cyclists we are regularly out ourselves, whether it's on or off road, or simply riding with our children. As a result we have learnt where the best routes and tracks are locally. We know where the hills and humps are. We know the places to avoid, and best of all, we know the quiet traffic free routes which can be easily reached by most people with little cycling effort.
During the summer months RAWcycles is able to guide you or your group around various local routes of different distances and difficulties. This could be on a weekend or a warm summers evening. In the winter months, as well as longer weekend rides, RAWcycles also offers regular guided night rides (on or off road). These are usually held mid-week and offer an exhilarating and adrenalin pumping experience!
Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or even a more experienced cyclist, RAWcycles will customise the route, the distance, the difficulty and the pace, so that your ride is ideal for your needs. RAWcycles will also offer a pre-ride check of your bike... and of course ensure there is a café en route for refreshments!
Prices for guided rides vary depending on what you want to do, how far you want to cycle and when you want to ride. A guide price for a basic accompanied ride of up to two hours duration (usually 20-25 km in length) is £20-£25 for groups of up to five riders. A more technical off road ride of up to four hours duration (about 40-50 km in length) would be £40-£50 for the same group; whereas a longer ride would be in the region of £60-£75.
For safety, accompanied night rides usually take place in smaller groups (usually up to three riders), are no more than three hours in duration or 30-40 km in length. A charge of £5 per rider would normally apply.
