Real reward for your legwork

Long Leg Tours is a company set up to offer great cycling and walking events in the UK and Europe.

My name is Simon Adams, and prior to founding Long Leg Tours I was the managing director of a successful company selling hardware to the building trade. Although I enjoyed my job and it gave me a lot of fantastic skills, I always wanted to do something more rewarding and of greater interest, as well as fitting in with my busy family life.

It all started after organising a sponsored event to bike from London to Paris in three days to raise money for a local cancer charity following the death of a family member. I hadn’t been road cycling long when I decided to undertake the challenge, so it was a hard slog in the nine months I had to build up the fitness levels needed to undertake such a distance, especially as my fourth child was due eight weeks before departure! It was all worth it though, and the sense of achievement I felt standing under the Eiffel Tower knowing I had got there under my own steam was overwhelming. It was at this point that I knew I wanted to help others achieve the same feeling. I felt sure that I could arrange more events and challenges in the future, and so Long Leg Tours was born.

I am passionate about cycling and hope to share that with others through Long Leg Tours and the events that I offer. I put 100% into ensuring that all of the rides planned, be it the sportives or the long-distance challenges, are on great routes in fantastic locations and are events that I have done or would like to do myself. To start with, Long Leg Tours will be focusing mainly on UK and French locations but I plan to move further into Europe by spring 2017.

What makes me different to others is that I am able to provide you with bespoke events and challenges for you and/or your group so that you get exactly what you want out of your ride without having to make compromises. Book onto one of the fantastic Long Leg Tours today and join us!
