Following a simply epic 2022 we thought it would be wrong not to bring you - lovely, adventurous folk - even more epic rides in beautiful places.

When we launched Wild Cycles just over 2 years ago - we set out with the aim of making rides in beautiful places easily accessible to a wider, diverse audience. Kicking off with routes in the stunning Chilterns Hills, gravel bike hire and our signature Gravel Camp on the Ridgeway - thanks to your support - Wild Cycles continues to evolve and bring you more wild, fun adventures in beautiful places.

We're super excited to announce a wildly beautiful (beautifully wild?) 2023 programme.

It's a sublime mix of adventures and experiences specially designed for your riding pleasure.

From a chilled gravel cruise on an award-winning wine estate, to a gritty and hugely fun mountain festival in Wales, a tour of the spectacular Wild West Cornwall, the challenging King Alfred's Way, or the iconic and beautiful South Downs Way - 2023 has it all!
