Top Ten United Kingdom Classic Adventures

Cycle the Cotswolds

Get on the bike: It's the perfect way to explore the heart of England. Routes through the Cotswold Hills wind through medieval stone villages, high uplands, deep-cut wooded valleys, wide ploughlands, and quiet woods. You'll find yourself riding through picture-postcard England. The country roads of Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire are surprisingly quiet, and, as if the scenery weren't reward enough, you'll enjoy real ale served in the pubs. Stay in hotels stuffed full of history; there you'll also find hearty meals with good wine.
