Join us for the Tour de Lewis, a course in 3 courses on 1st May 2017:
Please be seated!

We couldn't wait until July to do another event, so we thought we'd squeeze in something different with our good friends from Lewis Partnership on the May Bank Holiday.

What's the Tour de Lewis all about?

The idea is that it goes something like this

Some bike riding
Some food
Some more bike riding
Some more food
One last bike bit of riding
A little more food

Starting at the Moat House in Acton Trussell, our route takes us to all 3 rural Lewis Partnership properties in Staffordshire and at each stop you'll have the chance to sample something tasty with a Staffordshire twist. Call it a gastro tour, we like the idea of a course with three courses. The route is signed and we'll release a .gpx and .tcx file for those with GPS units.

It's our way of celebrating Staffordshire Day.
