How it works

All you need to do is open the link sent by a member of our Headwater team, to get the QR code to open the routes on the Headwater Navigation App. Once open, you'll see that your holiday details have been downloaded, so you can enjoy access to your day-to-day self-guided itinerary. Filled with navigation details that will help orientate you with your new surroundings, our app also includes detours to interesting places and recommended places to stop off for lunch!

When it comes to our cycling holidays, our bikes are fitted with a handlebar-mounted smartphone holder, so you don't need to worry about holding your phone (or keeping it clean and dry) whilst you're riding and, because the directions are spoken as you travel, you don't need to stop to check a map at every junction. If you do go wrong at any point the app will inform you that you've gone off route, so you can quickly backtrack and pick up where you left off.

With less need to stop and start whilst pedalling, you are left with more freedom to soak up your surroundings and enjoy the ride. We've included 'points of interest' along the routes to highlight the amazing scenery, fascinating architecture and quaint little villages that make Headwater cycling holidays so special.

If you'd rather use conventional maps

We think that the Headwater Navigationn App and our carefully created routes are the perfect combination for a relaxed cycling holiday - and much better than struggling with a conventional map. No need to stop at every junction to check where you're heading, always up-to-date, no folding and unfolding of maps and no tatty bits of paper to lose!

If you're still not convinced then we can supply you with printed maps and detailed step-by-step route notes. They follow the same routes and have all the information you will need to get from A-to-B. Find out about our maps & notes here.
