Join us for a ride with a difference as we explore some of MK’s hidden cultural gems.

In this series of rides we will be exploring all of the five official way marked MK Cultural Routes. The first week of each route we will enjoy the Short Route (about 5 miles) and the second we will do the full route (about 10 miles). Short routes take about 2 hours; Full routes about 3 hours. Information about all of the routes can be found here.

MK Cultural routes take in some of the best cultural, heritage and art sites MK has to offer.

Who can join a ride?

All riders including beginners and families are welcome. These rides are perfect for anyone wanting to find new cycle routes and meet new friends. Rides take place at a leisurely pace with plenty of time to take in the view.

Our Get Cycling MK Bike Tours are led by very friendly, experienced and knowledgeable ride leaders. We ride at the pace of the group and never leave anyone behind.

Book your place

Numbers are limited on every ride. You must book your place using the Lets Ride website. All of our rides are listed under the name ‘Get Cycling MK’ so it’s easy to see who you will be riding with.

Borrow a bike

No bike? No problem! Almost all of our rides depart from a Santander Cycles MK docking station. If you need to hire a bike follow these simple steps:
1. Register with Santander Cycles MK before the ride
2. Register for the ride on the Lets Ride Website
3. Check whether there’s a bike available at the Santander Cycles MK docking station

Bike checks and equipment

If you are bringing your own bike, or a friends, check it over before the ride – make sure the tyres are fully inflated and not too worn; brakes should stop the bike well and you should be able to operate them. If you have gears, they should work and very importantly, the bike should fit you and not be too big or small. We highly recommend all riders wear helmets. Minors must wear helmets for the ride.

Improve your skills

Our ride leaders are happy to give you tips and techniques to help you cycle more confidently, but if you’re interested in improving your skills, we also offer a wide variety of cycle training courses. Bikeability cycle training courses are designed to help you ride safely and confidently anywhere cycling is permitted. More information is available on the Milton Keynes Council’s Get Around MK Website here Cycling Skills Training
