Richard Morris trading as Xplore Britain Cycling operates as a sole trader in the United Kingdom.
About Xplore Britain
In 2007 Richard Morris set up “Xplore Britain Cycling”, operating as a sole trader business in the United Kingdom. Xplore Britain offers independent self-guided cycling tours and holidays, specialising in tours in Northern England and Scotland. The suggested itineraries are just a starting point. We specialise in tailoring our tours and holidays to suit your requirements, including adjusting the number of days, the mileage cycled, the routes chosen and the accommodation category. We work as quickly and efficiently as possible to make the booking experience as pleasurable as the holidays themselves. If you want something slightly different than what we show on the website, we CAN offer it. We aim to make your dream holiday a reality.
Meet the Staff
Richard Morris – Owner Operator
Richard has worked in the tourism sector for over 20 years including working for Explore Britain Walking tours and working as a ski guide in Europe. Prior to his tourism career he worked for many years in printing. He has lived in County Durham in northern England for over 6 decades and has a wide experience of cycling in Great Britain specialising in Northern England and Scotland destinations. Richard is also a certified fly-fishing instructor working for Fly Fishing Yorkshire and would be happy to include a fishing experience as part of a cycling tour.
Richard takes care of all logistics in the UK including booking accommodations, organising luggage transfers (often doing them himself) and ensuring the bicycles are in top condition. He also works directly with local and international clients.
Winter months are spent preparing special tours for returning clients, working on new tour ideas and servicing his fleet of hybrid tour bicycles. In his free time, Richard stays active cycling, fishing, walking, skiing and pursuing other outdoor activities and interests. You can reach Richard at firstname.lastname@example.org
Anne Kennedy – Experience Consultant
Anne and her husband Dave have been cycle touring in the UK since 2015. After meeting Richard and enjoying her first tour with Xplore Britain in May 2018 she reached out with an offer to provide voluntary assistance. After several years assisting with Xplore Britain she now works directly with clients to plan their bespoke tours. Anne also prepares the tour details and navigation for Xplore's bookings.
Her knowledge of cycling in the UK continues to grow. Since 2018 she has spent over 25 weeks cycling with Xplore Britain confirming her pure enjoyment of discovering new and re-visiting favourite previously ridden routes. She has a passion for the UK and is happy to share her enthusiasm with potential clients. Anne is particularly interested in working with clients who reside internationally, helping them plan their own bespoke tours (often initially via video chat). Anne lives near Vancouver, BC, Canada and when she isn’t planning Xplore clients’ or her own cycle trips she enjoys an active retired lifestyle including cycling, walking and playing pickleball.
