More about the tour
I live in Nottingham now, but the Yorkshire Dales was my stomping ground as soon as I bought my first bike. It’s a beautiful National Park, defined by its Karst (limestone) features, sheep and great pubs. Therefore I offer this as a long weekend “mini-tour”. Normally starting in Nottingham, we then ride in three different National Parks over three days. We generally stick to the quiet twisty backgrounds, avoiding motorways if we can. At the close of play, we lock up the bikes, retire to a traditional English Pub, eat Pie & Chips or some similar nutritional delight, and then put the world to rights over a few pints of Real Ale. It’s a great taster of “English life” for overseas visitors. We can assist with bike rental if required. It’s just so pleasant and predictable, year after year. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

EPIC!! Great views
I’ve also joined Bill on two Nepal Tours, the first time alone and the second with my partner who also rides. To sum these trips up in one word is simple….. EPIC!! Great views, incredible and challenging riding, a real flavour of the true Nepal and an amazing support crew are all on the agenda. If you’ve never ridden anywhere like Nepal then you should definitely try this!
Many great memories
The Alps Tour (2008) remains a highlight of my life. Many great memories of a real ‘adventure’. It never felt overly prescribed, in fact it felt spontaneous, like a bunch of mates out for a 10-day ride. The roads and routes that Bill chose were challenging and rewarding, with breathtaking scenery and great food and beverage stops along the way. Can’t imagine any better roads in the world to ride. I came from Canada and it was my first time on a ‘big bike’ (600cc) and I worried I was taking on more than I could handle, but Bill and the rest of the group we had that year were encouraging and supportive, and made sure I was never left behind! Great comraderie, loads of laughs and lifelong friends were made. If I lived in the UK or Europe, I’d be attending more of Bill’s tours on a regular basis.
I’ve been on several tours with Bike Tours Uk and each and every one of them has been a brilliant experience. Twice on the Best of Three tour we’ve been blessed with largely excellent weather and the small village in which we stayed was stunning with homely local pubs, good grub and a friendly welcoming atmosphere. Having run the trip for years Bills and sniffed out all the best roads to ride including some quite challenging Lake District passes.
