New cycling trips launched by Capital Sport are a Tour De Force

23rd February 2012 Print

Explore England from a fresh perspective on Capital Sport's brand new cycling tours, including the Arty Tour. Its expert knowledge of low to zero traffic bicycle routes in the UK is absolutely unmatchable, so let them do the hard work – and discover just how relaxing a cycling holiday can be.

Let the Arty Tour take your creativity up a gear as you explore the flatlands of Kent on bike. At Whitstable, stay in a fisherman's hut on the beach and begin the trip with a visit to the Turner Contemporary gallery at Margate. Cycle to Faversham along the best preserved medieval street in England and onwards to investigate a barge-lined creek and its vibrant artist community.

Feast carefree on the Gourmet Tour, because you can pedal it off later. Kent is overflowing with culinary delights; from farm shops and orchards to the famous Whitstable oysters. Sample beer at England's oldest brewery, dishes from a Michelin star kitchen and sip fine teas in a history-rich tea room. The Gourmet Tour is more than just an appetiser. It's a foodie's dream.

The Olympic Tour was launched in honour of the upcoming London Olympics. Befitting of the event's grand nature, the tour visits some of the country's most iconic sights. University colleges in Oxford, world-famous Stonehenge, the magnificent Salisbury Cathedral, chocolate box villages in the Cotswolds, and many more. Visit Stratford upon Avon, birthplace of William Shakespeare, where you'll have chance to take in a play. The Olympic Tour is truly a tour de force of everything British.

Capital Sport take care of everything. Each tour is expertly planned along gentle routes; luxurious, hand-picked hotels; top-of-the-range hybrid bikes; and your bags are transferred daily. Whether it's a tour through the New Forest national park or a luxury tour of the country's royal palaces, it's likely they have something that will suit you. Prices for the Arty Tour start at £225 per person based on four adults sharing a fisherman's hut.
