How Hooked on Cycling Started…
Back in 1994, our family moved from England to Scotland, where we located to just outside of Edinburgh. Busy in the corporate life we began to think that life should be better. The wild open spaces of the Scottish countryside started to ignite our passion in the outdoors. Our dream finally began in 1997, when we fully committed to live the dream and not just think about it. This is when Hooked on Cycling & Walking evolved; a very easy name as first we were truly “Hooked” on the outdoor world and secondly our names are Jon and Sue Hook.
Since we started our dream. we have developed cycling tours throughout Europe and the UK. We now have over 160 cycling tours and over 100 walking tours throughout Europe and the UK. Having both come from a customer service background our prime objective is to provide the very best pre-tour, on tour and after tour service. This includes choosing hotels and other accommodation which only we would like to stay in but also which must be typical of each region our cycling tours are located.
We have local teams, which we have worked with for many years, and so we know they are all totally dedicated to provide first class on tour service. We always consider responsible tourism so our representatives are all local to the tour; they all have a passion for their region and wish you to leave each tour with a passion as well and wanting to return.
Our Team Has Grown..
Our office is just outside of Edinburgh and we now have a small team (all family members) working here to ensure all your enquiries and dealt with efficiently. We always walk or cycle all our tour routes allowing us to get a first class understanding of each tour, the accommodation and wonderful landscapes. In 2010, we opened our professional bike shop in Bathgate, which we run simultaneously alongside our holiday business.
