About Us

 

Custom Cycle Tours is a limited company based in stunning Perranporth on the north Coast of Cornwall. Husband and wife team, Loz and Liz, offer bespoke guided cycling tours, quality cycle hire and cycling event management. 

They met in 2003 and their dream was always to create a business that they could work around their large family. They wanted to be able to enjoy more time being able to appreciate the beautiful part of the world that they live in, and what better way to do it than getting out and about on two wheels.

​Loz, originally from Brisbane Australia, arrived in Cornwall over 20 years ago and discovered it's beauty and immediately felt at home.  He is a talented events manager with many years’ experience under his belt, so you can be rest assured that your cycle tour experience will be flawless.

Loz swapped his love for his Harley Davidson for pedal power when he organised his first charity cycle tour called Le Capital, providing road support for twelve cyclists riding from Cornwall to London.  This later inspired him to take on his own challenge and he completed a 24 hour charity cycle ride from Paris to London, then (madly) ran the London Marathon the next day. 

As the founder of  Perranporth Cycling Club,  Loz has been  involved in many ride outs and cycling events locally, learning the routes to cycle and the ones to avoid around Cornwall for the less experienced cyclists.

Liz is the one behind the scenes yet in front of the computer screen, making sure that the booking system works properly and the right size bikes are ordered!!  She has lived in Cornwall for over 40 years and is proud to say she is most definitely a jam first type of person now.  An experienced IT, marketing and social media manager, she has worked within the tourism industry most of her working life,  including managing Perranporth Tourist Information for a number of years.

She will be the friendly voice on the end of the phone if you call, and the person that is always on hand to make sure you have the most enjoyable adventure for your guided tour or that your bikes turn up and are collected from the the right destination!

 

​Loz and Liz's vision is to create a cycling hub for locals and visitors in Perranporth, to eventually have a meeting point for all to gather and share information. Their aim is to highlight the health benefits of cycling by organising community events, and work with local businesses to create workshops.
