About Us

Freewheel Holidays is part of Sports Tours International which was established over 30 years ago and is today one of the UK’s largest specialist travel companies. We took over from the previous owners of Freewheel Holidays based in Leicester in 2015 and have built on their success ever since.

We have over 100 cycling holidays available throughout Europe along some of Europe's most popular and well known cycle routes. We cater for individuals, couples and groups and using local partners have access to a portfolio of quality cycling holiday providers that we work with on a daily basis.

We are ABTA and ATOL bonded for financial peace of mind and work with licensed operators throughout Europe to deliver the cycling holidays we sell.

Our team are passionate about pedalling in new places and seeing where the bike can take us. We have put together one of the best selections of cycling holidays available and are able to take bookings from UK based customers and around the world.
