Cycling Treasure Hunts

Duo Velo

What better way to see the beautiful Fenlands than on a bike – with a bit of adventure thrown in!

Starting from our base at Fourwinds Leisure in March, you will be given the first clue for free (aren’t we nice!) the solving of which sets you off in the direction of the second clue & so on until the hunt is complete. 

The Treasure Hunt is purely at your pace with the Duo-Velo team on hand to point out the many highlights & historical interest points of the area whilst ensuring your safety is paramount throughout the ride. By the end of the hunt you will have photos' treasures' & most of all the memory of a great adventure. And as an added feel good factor, having solved all the clues £1 of the entry fee will be donated to East Anglia Air Ambulance so you are also raising money for a vital service to the region!

The adventures cover approx 10mi & each hunt will have full back up support at HQ & on the hunt. But don't worry if  cycling is not your thing - you can still take part! With HQ at Fourwinds Leisure not everyone need leave the comfort of a camping chair as help is needed to solve the clues using good old fashioned brain power, reference books, maps – or failing that, Google!!  You can then communicate to the 'Hunters' via Whats App, Text or calls. You can even follow the riders’ progress via live Satnav feed whilst they hunt around the local area.

It really is an all inclusive adventure for families & groups of any age. Join us for a few hours - or why not make a weekend of it & book an overnight stay at Fourwinds Leisure to take advantage of more outdoor activities such as archery, canoing & fishing.

Please visit duo-velo.uk for more cycling adventures planned between & after the May Bank Holidays here in the Fenlands & beyond.

Booking ahead is essential via the booking form on our website or email team@duo-velo.co.uk Note: Each Treasure Hunt may consist of up to 12 riders. Please see our website for T&C's.

Apples and Ale cycle Route

This cycle ride starts from the busy market town of Wisbech, the capital of the surrounding Fens. From here the route heads west into rich farmland, past waterways, ancient sea banks and tiny Fenland villages, which are surrounded by hundreds of acres of orchards. In springtime these are enriched with the colour and scent of blossom, and in autumn, by delicious fruit. Along this route you can wander amongst the 100 year old apple trees in an old orchard, discover the treasures of ancient churches and taste the real ales at a Georgian brewery.

National Cycle Network - Route 1

A long distance cycle route connecting Dover and the Shetland Islands - via the east coast of England and Scotland - that also forms the majority of the British section of the North Sea Cycle Route. This route passes through Wisbech, but or the whole, impressive route, which is route 12 of the Eurovelo network, see http://www.northsea-cycle.com/

For a more local view of NCN route 1, see the Sustrans on-line interactive mapping at http://www.sustrans.org.uk/ncn/map/route/route-1?lat=52.78116973562679&lng=0.2554316914062138&zoom=10&route-type=all-routes&filters=

Route 1 links with the eastern end of NCN route 63 (which runs from Stoke on Trent via Peterborough and March) at Church Terrace, immediately north of the parish church, where there is a Millennium Milepost indicating the distances to I think Boston and Hull, King’s Lynn, March and Peterborough.
