Berwick Cycles Ltd Bike Tours


​Berwick Cycles' Town Tour will take you off the beaten track to fascinating places you won’t see on a typical bike ride or walking tour.

Town Tour. Ideal for the first time or regular visitor, the tour will take in stunning views of the Tweed estuary and North Sea, hopefully seeing swans or even dolphins, and will give you a flavour of Berwick up close. The route is relatively flat and uses trails as well as roads which should be suitable for all riders and bike types. The pace will be gentle and will stop regularly at points of interest for photographs where your local guide will answer any questions you may have. You are responsible for your own safety while on the tour.

Graham Bell
Berwick born and bred, Graham is proud of his town and its history, and would love to share his local knowledge with visitors who may require a quick pointer on how best to enjoy their perhaps limited stay. Graham who is recently retired, returned to Berwick after nearly 20 years working away in “exile” and feels you only truly appreciate what a great town it is to live & relax having been away from home. A 'born again' cyclist, Graham took up his boyhood hobby again primarily to improve his fitness by going out most days to enjoy the stunning daybreaks and scenery which locals take for granted.

​Frequently Asked Questions
Am I required to wear a helmet?
No, but for safety’s sake we strongly recommend it. We have a range of adjustable helmets available, or feel free to bring your own. Remember, you are responsible for your own safety while on the tour.

What time should I turn up for the tour?
Please arrive at least 15 to 20 minutes before your tour’s scheduled departure time. This will give you time to get acquainted with your bike and to finalise payment if you haven’t already done so online. If you are unavoidably delayed, please call to let us know and we’ll do our best to wait, though in fairness to other riders, we can’t guarantee it.

How do I book a tour?
You can book a place using our Contact form above. Places subject to availability. We will contact you by email to confirm.

I'd rather speak to someone to book. Can I do that by telephone?
Certainly, give us a call on 01289 331476

​How safe is cycling in Berwick?
Berwick has relatively light traffic conditions and much of our tour is on quiet country lanes. With any physical activity, however, there is some inherent risk, and your safety is our top priority. Before we pedal off, there will be a safety orientation and bicycle rundown. You will also be offered a safety helmet. If your tour leader feels that a client is unsuitable for this tour, we reserve the right to refuse participation. Remember, you are responsible for your own safety while on the tour.

How difficult is the ride?
Not at all - for most people. There are few hills and we ride at a relaxed pace. As long as you’re comfortable cycling at a relaxed pace for an hour or two (be honest), you'll be fine. Remember e-bikes are also available for hire.

What about bad weather?
A little rain simply adds to the atmosphere. We advise you to wear suitable clothing. If the forecast looks really nasty, however, we reserve the right to cancel the tour up to one hour before start time. If that does happen, we’ll contact you at the phone number you provided on booking, and you’ll be invited to reschedule (subject to availability) or receive credit for a future ride or a full refund.

What happens if I have a mechanical problem?
Your guide has both the knowledge and the tools to repair a flat or fix a minor breakdown. If you're on a hire bike and can't complete the ride due to a mechanical problem, we will arrange transportation for you and the bike back to Berwick Cycles.

What do I need to bring?
Comfortable riding clothes to match the weather, closed shoes (recommended). We supply helmets but you can bring your own if convenient.

Are there any stops on the tour?
Yes, there will be a multiple stops along the way at historic sites. This is generally left for the members of the group to decide.

Is the tour suitable for children?
The minimum age for riders is 12 years, and 12 to 16 year olds must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Sorry, no exceptions. We would also recommend that ‘soon-to-be-mums' avoid the tour as a precautionary measure.
