Cycling holidays

A cycling holiday gives the most scope for independent exploring, as you can follow any route you choose using our maps and notes.

Our suggested routes use quiet country lanes, and go by the places we think are most interesting – from cycling in France along rural lanes past pretty chateaux to coastal tracks and hidden coves on the beautiful islands of Sicily and Gozo.

Find your holiday

Cycling holidays

On an independent cycling holiday you're free to explore at your own pace. So, whether it's a long lazy lunch or a visit to an ancient chateau, the choice is yours! To help you find your way from A to B we provide detailed maps and our own comprehensive route notes and, to help you choose a cycling holiday that best suits your level of fitness our cycling holidays are graded using our bike rating system, starting off with just enough exercise to work up an appetite for the next great meal.

Choosing an activity level

To help you choose a holiday that best suits your level of fitness all our cycling holidays are graded. On the individual holiday pages you'll see that we've marked each tour with a 'Bike Rating' so that you know what level of activities to expect.

Cycling holidays tailored to you…

If you'd like to try a cycling holiday but can't fit in a full week away, or perhaps you're new to cycling and would prefer a short introduction to cycling with Headwater, a short break cycling holiday is just for you. These follow the same routes as our regular holidays, but you cycle every day.
