Cycling Adventures with Treasure Trails

Cycling Adventures with Treasure Trails

wp-image-13275

Fancy a two-wheeled adventure? We’ve got just the thing! Our cycling Trails will have you peddling the route from stop to stop as you enjoy some scenic interludes between solving clues. You’ll have to stop peddling to solve the clues, of course! Sometimes this will be a quick stop and solve; at other times, you’ll need to lock up the bikes and explore a location on foot to find the answers you seek. Then it’s back on the saddle and off to the next location along the self-guided route.

How to find cycling or driving Trails

You can filter for cycling Trails (as well as driving or walking Trails, themes and accessibility) by using the advanced filter on our website. You can find this by clicking on ‘Buy a Treasure Trail’ at the top of our website, then select the area you are interested in. The Trails for this location will then be listed on the page, with an ‘Advanced Filter’ drop-down option above them. If you click on this, you will be able to filter between all of the Trail types by selecting your preferences.

Not all regions of the country have cycling Trails, so to save you a bit of time, we’ve put together a super useful list for you below. Please note that some of the routes are linear, meaning they’re just one way, so you will also need to plan for the journey back:
