We supply you with a comprehensive selection of maps, guides and route directions for your independent cycling holiday. These are included in the price and are sent to you via email in advance of your trip so that you can familiarise yourself with all the details. Our maps are highly detailed whilst our guidebooks contain invaluable information on the local area including culture and customs, art and history, flora and fauna. These can also be posted out to you on request.
Our route directions provide clear, in-depth turn-by-turn instructions, highlighting landmarks, distances and any potential confusing turnings, so you can be sure of a relaxed journey by bike. We also include detours to places of interest, shortcuts to avoid hills, and places to stop off for lunch.
Our reps and route-checkers cycle the routes and itineraries regularly on every one of Headwater’s self-guided cycling holidays to make sure that all aspects of the trip are as described. Occasionally, cycle paths are diverted or restaurants close, but our thorough checking of details will give peace of mind to customers that routes have been adapted and updated. At the start of your holiday our reps will point out any last minute alterations and will also offer advice on how to get the best from your holiday.
Similar to a car sat-nav system, we now offer RideWithGPS route navigation on all our cycling holidays that include a Headwater Rep – meaning less need to carry large paper maps and directions and more time to enjoy the journey and follow the built-in voice navigation.
