RidePlus is an optional extra package, designed to enhance some of our best-loved self-guided cycling routes. The rides are longer and the package, which includes the use of a lightweight road bike and GPS route tracks can be added on to selected itineraries, giving you the opportunity to see more of some of our most popular regions.
Both our standard and RidePlus cycling routes use the same hand-picked hotels each night, so, if you're travelling with family or friends, some can tackle the more challenging routes whilst others keep to the more relaxed ones. You'll then be able to meet up at the end of the day to share your holiday memories. The standard routes generally take a more direct, shorter route, with plenty of opportunities for sightseeing and local exploring, whilst the RidePlus route takes a wider loop to reach the same end point.
RidePlus routes range from 50km/31mi to 120km/75mi in flatter areas and from 45km/28mi to 70km/43mi in hillier terrain. By comparison, our standard routes are generally between 30km/18 and 50km/31mi per day and aim to avoid longer, steeper hills.
Visit the holiday itinerary section to see further details of the RidePlus routes (distances and short description). Details of the upgraded bikes available and the supplement payable are in the dates and prices section.
At time of booking, just request the RidePlus option for the number of people wanting it and we will confirm the rest for you.
Before departure you will be sent your route details, with access to downloadable GPX files for you to add to your own Garmin device.
