presca wild rides

Discover some of the best rides in the UK with our guide to epic cycling adventures. Shared by our Presca community, each ride takes in some of Britain’s most scenic, remote and breath-taking natural beauty – as well as highlighting the impact of climate change right on our doorstep, from depletion of ancient woodlands to loss of biodiversity.

As well as route details, our Presca Wild Rides all offer a detailed itinerary and insider’s guide, including how to get there, where to stay, the best places to stop off and refuel – and must-visit attractions.

Plus, let us know when you’ve followed one of the routes and we’ll plant a tree just for you, in association with our partner Eden Projects.

North York Moors

Hannah Farran shares a stunning circuit through the North York Moors – one of England’s most spectacular National Park routes, where the natural splendour is threatened by rapid depletion of ancient peat reserves.

North Norfolk

Just because it’s flat, doesn’t mean it’s dull. Professional cyclist Sophie Wright takes the coast road through her home region to discover the impact of coastal erosion, while revelling in unique sea views.

Pembrokeshire Coast

West Wales has some of the loveliest beaches in the world. Long-distance cyclist Peter Gostelow rides the cliffs and shorelines to discover history, nature – and the reality of rising sea levels.

South Oxfordshire

Taking us on a route he’s trained on throughout his cycling career, Vegan Tri Guys’ James Aubry saddles up for a deceptively challenging ride through idyllic villages, tranquil waterways and quiet lanes. 


A route that will remind you of the south of France, passing through the birth place of William Shakespeare, with plenty of coffee and cake stops along the way. Team GB age group triathlete Verity Atkins shares this flatter Warwickshire route.


A breathtaking route that includes sections of traffic free canal paths, Dumfries cycling instructor Josh Wood guides you on a tour of west Scotland through to the Inner Hebrides, taking in views of some of Scotland’s most famous islands.

Lake District

It is safe to say the Lake District is renowned for its views, and this route certainly doesn’t disappoint. Joe Reid’s route includes coffee stops at the top of climbs, hairpin descents, bustling villages, and picturesque picnic spots.

Purbeck Loop

The Jurassic Coast is England's only natural World Heritage site, and this full-day loop from Peter Gostelow really has it all. Rolling hills, nature reserves, off-road sections, flats, coastal paths, swimming pit stops…it’s a good job the route ends with coffee and cake!
