“Perfect weekend in the New Forest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

I highly recommend cycling with Biker's Delight - Graham is an excellent tour leader and has perfectly honed the skilful balance between being organised and always on schedule, but at the same time very relaxed so it all came across as very effortless. He keeps everyone feeling well looked after and pays close attention to the good functioning order of the bikes. But he doesn't over-manage any situation or make the group feel as though they are being shepherded around. The rides were good lengths (about 30 and 20 miles in this case) and taken at a fairly gentle pace. For the faster riders there was a bit of occasional waiting so it's good to have a laid-back approach and focus on enjoying the scenery as well as getting the miles in. One of the major highlights is the plentiful food and drink spots. Graham has found some gorgeous hidden-away gems so there is always something to look forward to around the next corner. We were certainly well fed and he even had cake supplies on offer, lest anyone should start flagging mid-ride. A really quality weekend, great people, fun socialising and wonderful routes with plenty of quiet lanes in lovely countryside.

“Wandle river and Denbeigh Wine Estate in Dorking.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Brilliant day out. We cycled in a manageable group along the river stopping at a few attractions such as mills and cafes to load up on caffine and refreshments.
Then a nice relaxing lunch at an italian before heading over across Epsom racecourse to Dorking where we ended our tour at a wine estate.
Lovely weather, lovely people all made a lovely day.

“Cotwolds Weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

A great weekend ... the weather was fantastic with amazing views.

The hotels were very comfortable, with great food.... the villages we visited were beautiful.
We had plenty of stops for a breather on route and refreshment breaks in some of the villages.
I found the cycling tough in places but with some more bike riding experience I would certainly take part again in this ride.

Graham was very very patient with the group and advised the less experienced riders throughout the two days.

“Cycling Weekend in the Cotswolds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

A fantastic weekend of cycling. We were really lucky with the weather which was great for enjoying the Cotswold scenery at it's finest. 30 mile bike ride on the Saturday followed by 20 mile bike ride Sunday, generally not that difficult but there are a few challenging hills so I would suggest a bit of practice to get the most out of this cycle ride. The hote was old english quaint and the food good in both the hotel, restaurants and stops along the bike ride. Very good value for money, I am sure to sign up again :¬)
