About Bikexplore

Bikexplore is owned and run by its Leaders. Each of us has a passion for the places we visit and a wealth of previous experience in organising cycling holidays, mainly but not exclusively for CTC / Cycling UK. Like CTC, Bikexplore’s legal structure is that of a company limited by guarantee.

As members of a collaborative non-profit organisation, our Leaders are motivated by the challenge of planning and the joy of sharing unforgettable holidays with a group of friends – many of whom we’ve never met before! Like you we enjoy nothing more than exploring new places on two wheels – and at a human pace. In our opinion, there is no better way of getting to know our wonderful world.

Unlike businesses which demand uniformity, we celebrate difference. Each Bikexplore holiday reflects the cycling personality of its Leader, who will lead you in their own careful way, to the special places they have found, along the kinds of roads or paths they love to travel.

Enough waffle already! We understand that when choosing a holiday, you’ll want to know how each different Leader does things. So let us take you to our Leaders!

Chris Ellison

I believe tours should be mostly about enjoying yourself and having fun experiencing the local culture, scenery and people - rather than ticking off countries or getting the miles in. He says I try to give a choice of long or short rides with rest days as well on most of my tours. I try to be around when needed, and I can often be found looking after the people at the tail-end of the ride.

Steve Millard

When on holiday, I’ve always loved to have a distant destination in mind and to cycle there taking in beautiful scenery on the way. The journey should take days or preferably weeks giving the time to linger and discover new and interesting places on the way. This is what I try to bring to my cycling holidays; a journey, a fascinating experience and a holiday, not just a bike ride.

Greg Woodford

I like exploring new areas. I love cycling up hills and seeing the views from the top. Then whoopee down the other side.  I lead very informally, allowing the groups to form and ride at their own pace. I prefer being at the back but will often ride to the front and then chat to people in the middle.
