Fun around town,
Evenings or weekends, why not enjoy a cycle to your favourite Pub or Restaurant which may not be in the town centre and or a little too far to walk or take a leisurely spin to Montpellier and a gentle coast back afterwards! Or for shopping, the bikes have a front pannier basket and a rack on the back.
Forget the car, traffic jams and parking problems and costs, leave the motor with us and take a bike to work, enjoy the purpose built bike tracks around town and the freedom and a bit of fun to start the day, arrive at work invigorated, not stressed!!
Leisure rides around Cheltenham and the Cotswolds.
Pittville Lawn joins a specified cycle paths, which runs through Pittville park and along the old Honeybourne railway line to the station, from here you can continue on designated cycle paths to Gloucester to the historic Cathedral and docks. If feeling adventurous you could follow the canal sixteen miles through wonderful countryside to the river at Sharpness, and back, or catch a train.
Alternatively, explore the Cotswold, cycle up through the famous Racecourse to the Racecourse Railway station and catch a steam train out to Winchcombe or even Toddington (the bike goes for free) from this point you could do circular routes in the Cotswolds or take lanes back to Cheltenham. http://www.gwsr.com/home.aspx.
The Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Railway is especially useful at weekends where public transport around the Cotswolds can be a little sparse, the perfect time for a steam train ride, maybe a short bike ride to a pub for lunch and get the last train back to the Racecourse!
If staying for a while why not enjoy some days out for free and feel great for doing it, there are many green cycle routes through town and even to Gloucester, we can help you make up an itinery or follow these sites for suggested tours http://www.bikely.com/listpaths or bike paths around town http://www.cyclecheltenham.org.uk/yellow.html.
