Cycling With Culture

 

Many of our cycling holidays take in some of Europes' richest cultural heritage. 

 

Travelling by bike, our trips give you an excellent opportunity to take in a diverse range of cultural experiences both rural and urban that won't be found on a coach tour.

 

Pass through historic towns and the big UNESCO world heritage sites, but also the working countryside, the wine regions and lively villages.

 

Throughout much of Europe the bicycle is a respected and highly utilised mode of everyday transport. Travelling by bike is a more intimate way of exploring local traditions and customs and you may find yourself cycling alongside plenty of locals!

 

Included on most of our cycling holidays:
 

  • High quality, comfortable, en suite accommodation.
  • Breakfast each morning.
  • A well-maintained bicycle suitable for the local terrain.
  • Bicycle equipment: Including panniers, padlock, pump and puncture repair kit.
  • Route Notes & Maps.
  • GPS files on request after booking.
  • Route support and helplines.
  • Luggage transport between hotels.
  • Local representatives.
