Cycling gives great scope for independent exploring, as you can follow any route you choose using our comprehensive route directions, GPS route navigation and detailed maps.
Our suggested routes use quiet country lanes, and go by the places we think are most interesting – from cycling in France along rural roads past pretty châteaux to coastal tracks and hidden coves on the beautiful island of Sicily.
Travel across the UK, Ireland, Europe and the Mediterranean –you will cover more distance travelling on two wheels than you would on foot, leaving more time to reach those touchpoints and soak up more of the atmosphere, right from your saddle.
On a self-guided cycling holiday you're free to explore at your own pace. So, whether it's a long lazy lunch or a quick detour to an ancient château, the choice is yours!
We provide you with top-quality custom-made bikes and our local representatives move your luggage for you from hotel-to-hotel as part of the package.
Well-designed and easy to use, an electric bike can help take the edge off daunting hill climbs, long distances and the occasional head wind! Emission-free, they keep you going for that little bit longer.
Having power assistance means you will be able to comfortably cycle further too (if you wish), meaning more places are within visiting distance. If you usually opt for our more gentle routes, you can now choose something a little more undulating with an e-bike as the effort required is similar.
We understand that not everyone is a world-class map reader so, on all our cycling holidays, our route directions provide turn-by-turn instructions - pointing out landmarks, distances and even highlighting any confusing turnings - so you can be sure of a relaxed journey.
On our cycling holidays where there is a Headwater Rep you’ll also receive RideWithGPS route navigation alongside our traditional route directions and map. We also include detours to places of interest, shortcuts to avoid hills, and places to stop off for lunch!
