Our Bike Tours
(2 ½ hours – starting at 10:30am – approximately 4 miles)
This is a great tour if you’re really pushed for time.
It covers the majority of the sights and follows a squiggly line taking in Midsummer Common, Stourbridge Common, Eights Rowing, College Boat Houses, Jesus Green, Round Church (one of only four in the UK), Front of St. Johns College, Trinity Great Gate, Trinity Great Court (subject to side door being open), The Wren Library (subject to time), Garrett Hostel Bridge, Cambridge University Real Tennis Club, The Backs, The Best Spot to take that iconic photo of Kings College Chapel, Senate House, Kings Parade, Corpus Christi Clock, The Eagle Pub, and St. Benets Church.
We start under the lamp in the middle of Parker’s Piece just to the south of the City Centre at 10:30am. If you’re running a bit late don’t worry … come straight to our garage on Elm Street (behind the Elm Tree Pub) where we will be fitting bikes.
The tour will finish at the garage on Elm Street at around 1pm but the Full Day Tour guests have a lunch break in town.
Price: £20 per person inclusive of bike hire (discounts available to Students, Families and Groups – email for details).
(2 ½ hours – starting at 1:30pm – approximately 4 miles)
Perhaps you’ve done the city and want to get out and about for the afternoon … well this is just the thing. Meeting under the lamp in the middle of Parker’s Piece to the south of the City Centre at 1:30pm we walk over to the garage to pick up our bikes and get cracking.
We head out of the city through the fens towards the village of Grantchester to enjoy the river, The Orchard Tea Gardens, The Old Vicarage (previously the home of the poet Rupert Brooke and now the home of the author Jeffrey Archer). Then we sit down for either a cream tea or a pint in a very local British Pub, where we play the oldest recorded pub game called ‘ringing the bull’ (your drink could be free if you manage to beat the tour guide at this game). You never know you might be sitting next to a Nobel Prize winner as Grantchester has the highest concentration of them in the world.
If you’re daring enough you could bring your swimwear and cool off in the river Cam.
We head back into the city, finishing at about 4pm.
Price: £20 per person inclusive of bike hire (discounts available to students, families and groups – just email for details).
Full Day Tour
(5 ½ hours – starting at 10:30am – approx. 8 miles but at a leisurely pace)
This tour combines both the City and Grantchester Tours as detailed above; however we also stop for lunch in town as a group.
