Introducing cyclists to the most rewarding cycling experiences imaginable

Since setting up Thomson Bike Tours in 2001, I must have covered over 250,000km on the bike and haven’t grown one bit weary of doing so. One of the reasons behind that is the simple enjoyment I have in introducing new people to the most rewarding cycling experiences imaginable.

I look forward to meeting you on a trip. Let’s Go Again.
