What we're about

Looking for a weekend escape with good friends? Or a solo adventure making new ones?

Follow the red fox on an "Escape the City" two day ride in the country.

Leaving Saturday morning, cycling from an easily accessible start point on the outskirts of the city, our experienced guide will lead you on an idyllic route from the stresses of city life. Experience the beauty of the Great British countryside as a group of up to 25 riders.

We'll set up base at a carefully chosen campsite with all the amenities and organise optional wild and wonderful activities such as hiking, wild swimming and morning yoga or pilates.

We provide the tent, a camping mat, air pillow and a chair, all you need to bring is sleeping bag. Our support van will take the weight of your overnight bag so you can focus on enjoying the ride.

We'll keep you nourished and hydrated throughout the day and in the evening enjoy dinner together in a welcoming local pub or around the campfire.

Our return ride will have you back in London Sunday evening, relaxed, rejuvenated and ready for the new week.

Don't have a bike? Not a problem, we can help you to hire one through one of our trusted suppliers.

Make the best of your weekend!

UPDATE: Due to the restrictions imposed by the new government regulations we have made the difficult decision to cancel our final ride for 2020 (26-27 September). We will be announcing shortly all our spring weekend rides. We hope you can join us and #followtheredfox in 2021! Visit our website and join our mailing list for regular updates. www.redfoxcycling.co.uk Challenge yourself, make the best of your weekend and join fellow adventurers on our 2 day guided, supported, cycle experience to the High Weald. Escape the City' is a particularly fitting description for this ride. The ancient heathland forest was a place of sanctuary for lowland Britons during the Saxon raids and, more recently, a haven for outlaws and highwaymen looking to evade capture! We, of course, will be there for less dangerous reasons. The High Weald (from the old Saxon word 'Walde' meaning forest) is a high sandstone ridge, formed millions of years ago, and one of the best surviving landscapes in Europe with its narrow, sunken lanes and steep valleys. So expect a big dose of wild and natural beauty, a fair chunk of medieval history and truly magnificent views, all just a stone's throw from London. THE EXPERIENCE: - A fully guided, fully supported 2 day cycle experience with a group of like-minded adventurers in the ancient forests of Kent and Sussex - Magnificent views of the Eden and Medway valleys from the Weald's high sandstone ridge - Visit to the delightful Wealden villages of Mayfield, an absolute gem with its quaint high street, and Groombridge with its village green and moated manor house - Top notch coffee and home made cakes at the Deer Park cafe in Eridge - See the Ancient yew tree at Rotherfield, said to pre-date the ancient church which once stood there - Admire the 16th century castle, pretty village store and half timbered buildings in the little Tudor village of Chiddingstone - Cosy wild camp under the stars in a secluded woodland campsite (own equipment needed) - Delicious BBQ dinner and some well deserved drinks, enjoyed al fresco in our campsite (self funded) - Morning yoga before breakfast on Sunday (optional) - Wild swim in the River Medway at Fordcombe (optional) DETAILS OF THE RIDE Start Date : Saturday 26 - Sunday 27 September 2020 Start Point : Royal Tunbridge Wells Start Time : 10am Number of miles per day : 38 Hours of cycling per day : 4-6 Overnight Camp : Dernwood Farm End Point : Royal Tunbridge Wells Ride Grading : Moderate to challenging You'll need to be moderately fit and capable of cycling approximately 40 miles per day.
