Rides & tours
At BB, we do a weekly beginner's ride and 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.
Come and explore our bike-friendly city routes. We operate in small groups and show you the hidden gems of this beautiful city. Through picturesque streets, lined with history, we go where the buses can’t take you. See more of the city than on foot. We have a range of one off reasonably priced tours. Below are some of the tours we can take you on; contact us for more details.
