About Us


We like to think we are a little different. The ethos that drives Pedal Nation was born after speaking to a number of newcomers to cycling. We found that many said they felt a little intimidated by all the technical clothing, equipment, energy gels and the fast riding style that appeared to be necessary requirement of a cycle tour.

To roll with Pedal Nation, you don’t need to ride the most expensive bike, to be super fit, or have the hill climbing ability of Alberto Contador. We encourage the slow coaches, the cyclists who push up the steepest hills and those who lie down next to a Lake District tarn on a sunny day. We like the ones who stay too long in the cafe, or get to the B&B late because they’ve been taking photographs of a gorgeous sunset. Of course we have some ‘hard’ grade trips too that will test your stamina and hill climbing ability. Even on these you will be fully supported and encouraged to ride at your own pace all the way.

Whenever possible, we will adapt and change things to suit you best. Ultimately, we’re really trying to create the best experience possible. Come ride with us – we love meeting you all.

How We Roll

We keep our group numbers small and limit each tour to 15 guests, to ensure that you’re safe, well looked after and can easily bond as a group.

All our trips have at least one cycling guide and a support vehicle to carry your luggage as well as meet up with you during the day to top up water bottles and provide refreshments.

Our trips stay in comfortable hotels and guesthouses and you’ll share on a twin room basis. Single rooms are usually available on payment of a supplement. We provide breakfast and lunches but you pay for evening meals which are usually eaten communally.

You will be provided with GPX files of the route to upload on to your navigation device e.g. Garmin/Wahoo. Don’t worry if you don’t have a navigation device as our cycle guide will be riding with you.
