Cycling Holidays

Cycling ratings explained

To help you choose a holiday that best suits your level of fitness, all our cycling holidays are graded using our Headwater activity grading system, focusing primarily on distance and ascent.

On the individual holiday pages (and in our brochure) you'll see that we've marked each tour from level 1 or 4. You can also search for your required activity level in our holiday finder.

On some holidays there is a choice of routes and, for these, two ratings will be shown (you’re free to choose between routes on a day-by-day basis). You’ll also notice a + symbol on a few holidays too - this is just letting you know that some small sections of the route will be slightly more challenging than the overall grading.



"1 bike" cycling holidays

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.

"2 bike" cycling holidays

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.

"3 bike" cycling holidays

Longer, more challenging routes better suited to regular cyclists. No special technical skills are required but you must be reasonably fit and confident in your cycling ability.

"4 bike" cycling holidays

Challenging trips that require confidence in your ability and physical condition. They are equivalent to an extended period of cycling at home. Previous mountain biking experience is essential for off-road trips, as they will involve some technical riding. All our RidePlus routes are graded level 4.
