Get to know who we are
Cotswoldetours was created by Ian Hunter when he recognised weekend bike riders, especially those living in urban areas had few opportunities to get out into the countryside. And when they do, they stick to the tried and tested or busy popular routes. Acknowledging that most were also unlikely to have ridden an electric mountain bike he saw an opportunity to offer guided, off-road ebike tours that cater for people looking to add a little adventure into their day.
The onset of Covid has changed some aspects of our lives. One of the benefits has been a greater number of people prepared to stay at home to explore more of the UK. The Cotswolds are a jewel in the British landscape, offering dramatic scenery, a wide variety of trails, and extensive views in a beautiful location.
Ian has ridden for many years both within and beyond the UK. Exploring the Alps, the Atlas Mountains and testing himself on the usual long distance challenges in the UK (such as the South Downs Way, etc). As long as the weather allows, he is out riding regularly every week – putting thousands of off-road miles on his bike every year.
