Cycling Holidays

Cycling ratings explained

How our rating system works

To help you choose a holiday that best suits your level of fitness all our walking holidays are graded.

On the individual holiday pages (and in our brochure) you'll see that we've marked each tour with either 1 or 2 'crests' so that you know what level of activities to expect. You can also search for your required activity level in our holiday finder too.

You’ll also notice a ‘+’ symbol on a few itineraries. This is just to let you know that some small sections of the route will be slightly more challenging than the overall grading.

So, for example, our Classic Chianti Cycling holiday has a level 2+ rating meaning overall it’s classified as a level 2 holiday but will have small sections that are more difficult.

Level one cycling

Gentle routes, often flat but with the occasional short climb and freewheel descent! On average, you should expect to be cycling for 3-5 hours on each cycling day leaving lots of time to explore at leisure, relax by the pool etc. A great choice for first-timers, families with children or anyone who hasn’t ridden a bike in years.

Level two cycling

More varied cycling terrain which will appeal to the fair-weather cyclist, or to more active riders looking for a relaxed trip. No special technical skills are required.
