Behind the Scenes at The Open Road Experience

Welcome to The Open Road Experience, run by Cathy Thompson & Graham Hey

For well over a decade we have collectively worked in the small group cycling holiday industry, organising and guiding road cyclists through the most stunning cycling routes in Europe.  

Now settled in the South West, just outside the popular market town of Frome, Somerset, we have explored extensively by bike and on foot, and can think of no better place to be. There is an energy and passion shared by many local businesses in the area, that we are excited to promote and share.

With operational, guiding, mechanical and administrative experience, we have blended our skills to create The Open Road Experience, celebrating one of the best evolutions known in the world of cycling: the addition of power to the humble bike and tandem!

Focused on delivering a wonderfully supported and bespoke customer experience to a full range of clients, our mission is to share the joy & confidence that e-cycling brings, the excitement of trying something new, the pleasure of being outdoors, exploring the stunning South West on two wheels, and the sense of a potential new world of opportunity opening up in front of you.
