Cycling holidays in the UK

They say there's no place like home, and our self-guided UK cycling tours are the perfect way to discover the allure of the beautiful landscapes, hidden villages and wild corners of the British Isles.

Take on a wonderfully relaxed trip around the picture-perfect scenery of the Cotswolds or seek an archetypal Highland adventure around Loch Ness. Whichever trip you choose, both packages follow a series of handpicked routes that will guarantee you see the best of what cycling trips in the UK have to offer.

Experience the magic on our cycling trips in the UK

Rich history, good food and outstanding scenery - just three reasons why the UK is one of the most interesting and engaging places to explore of anywhere around the globe. With so much green open space on offer, the British landscape naturally lends itself to discovery on two wheels.

Take your pick from two contrasting yet equally unique UK cycling tours, located at opposite ends of the country. First, our Classic Cotswolds package, covering one of Britain's most popular holiday locations. An area renowned for both its natural and architectural allure, the Cotswolds' rolling countryside and picturesque villages are equally revered as some of the best the island has to offer.

For those looking for a sense of myth-laden adventure, head north of the English border for our Loch Ness and Highlands UK cycling package. Beyond the rumours of a famous beast lies an area of rugged yet stunning natural beauty, boasting ancient castles, misty lochs and tranquil hideaways for you to breathe in as you cycle the breathtaking trails.

Our cycling holidays in the UK are built with your comfort and convenience in mind. As well as providing a selection of your chosen tour area's most charming and desirable stayover spots, we'll also provide you with a high-quality bike for your tour, with upgrade options on rooms, extra nights and electric bikes all available to you.

Known for tales of the seldom seen monster, the area around Loch Ness is also famous for having some of the most spectacular natural scenery in the UK. Here numerous other lochs await discovery along with ruined castles, shady forests, tranquil waterways, high viewpoints, hidden waterfalls, a huge variety of wildlife (including many birds of prey and notably golden eagles) and a history that at times seems indiscernible from the area's timeless folklore.
