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.
Guided holidays are perfect if you fancy cycling in a small group - typically with 10-16 like-minded people – with a leader on hand to share all their knowledge and experience with you! You also have the added reassurance of a support vehicle following your route so, if it ever gets too much, you can simply hop in and give your legs a rest!
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' from 1 to 3 so that you know what level of activities to expect.
