At BB, we do all kinds of tours around all parts of Winchester but, like the name says, our trips are mainly organised around you.
So we do coaching for those who might feel a bit wobbly about getting on a bike. We do cycle know-how; how to get about the city, how to negotiate traffic and how to stay safe.
But most of all we do friendly and fun rides. You’ll see how as you wheel through the site.
We’ve taken a lot of care mapping our routes.
They’ll take you where buses can’t and let you get more of this historic city than you might do on foot. Our rides cover all the sights but if you fancy bending the route a little to suit your own preferences, no problem.
Call for details.
*Reasonable bike rental available on request.

Unlike some companies, Bespoke Biking coaching is tailored to you. Young or adult, we’ll teach you in the park first, moving on to quiet roads so you can become all the more confident in busier traffic later. We can also help you find and navigate a route to work or your place of study.
Heather Evans our qualified instructor will show you how.
£25 per hour. Group rates available on request.
Bikeability is all about achieving levels of proficiency.
We do nationally accredited training that’s taught by nationally accredited instructors.
Level 1 is about: safe steering, moving the bike, learning to signal.
Level 2 is about: basic hand signals, junction navigation, road positioning.
Level 3 is about: (teens and adults only), confidence in traffic, one way systems, roundabouts and the rest.
BREEZE rides are women-only rides and are sponsored by British Cycling. They’re fun, free and great for making friends. The kind of cycling that’s right up our street.
Heather Evans is a trained Breeze Champion and ride leader. She has introduced dozens of women to her bike rides in Winchester and beyond. Type Winchester into “Find a Ride” on the Breeze web site.
