How many stops are there?

There are between 15-20 stops on the tour. The stops aren't very long as we have a lot of ground to cover! If you want to learn more about Sheffield history then check out the History Tour.

Can I bring children?

Yes. Any child who is capable of riding their own bike is welcome providing they have one-to-one adult supervision at all times and must be confident enough to ride on roads.

Children who cannot ride can come too! We have an Urban Arrow Family that we can bring. It can carry two children aged 2-9 or a single older child. No extra charge for kids under 12. Unfortunately babies require a special seat attachment which we do not have. You are always welcome to carry your own children using any equipment that you bring.

Can I go inside the buildings on the tour?

Yes! You are welcome to go inside any building that is open to the public.

Do I need to bring anything extra when hiring bikes?

Yes. In order to collect the bikes from Russell's Bicycle Shed, you'll need to bring a payment card and photo ID. The bike hire fee is paid on collection.

Can I be a passenger in your bike?

Yes. The Urban Arrow Family is very spacious! Unfortunately there is an upper limit of 90kg for the passenger. We'll provide a helmet for you to wear so you only need to wrap up warm. It is an exhilarating way to get around!

Can I stop for lunch?

No problem! We can schedule in a lunch stop. We won't charge you for the extra time.

Can I get refreshments on the way?

Yes, there are several great coffee shops on route. Just ask your guide!

Are there toilets on route?

Yes, there are a couple of stops with toilets nearby. The guide will mention the toilets at these stops.
