FAQs about our cycling holidays

What is a cycling holiday?

If you haven’t been on this type of break before, you might be wondering what you can expect from a cycling holiday.

You’ll have a detailed itinerary carefully compiled by us to make sure you have a set route that takes you through some of the highlights of your chosen region. We’ll give you access to a top-quality bike and we’ll see that you’re set up with a trusty guide or our very own navigation app and GPS instructions (depending on whether you go for a guided or self-guided tour). Your accommodation will also be arranged by us, taking the hassle out of the organisation side of things for you!

What types of cycling holidays are there?

There are guided and self-guided bike holidays available.

A guided trip will take place in a small group led by a local expert. These are very sociable and are a great way to make friends. You can sign up to one of these as a solo traveller or with a significant other, friend or relative. If you’ve already got a group of people you want to travel with, some cycling holiday packages also have the option for you to come along as a private group.

Some of our cycling trips are self-guided. These are perfect for the traveller that likes to travel at their own pace, but still have an organised itinerary to follow and excellent accommodation. We provide the bikes and the maps, among other things!

How are cycling holidays graded?

When you check out the various cycling tour breaks we run, you’ll notice that we’ve graded them as “leisurely”, “moderate”, or “challenging” to give you a better idea of the level of exertion involved. As a baseline, we recommend you be in good health and relish the outdoors when you embark on your adventure with us. Read more about how our cycling activity level grading works.

You can also read the helpful cycling fitness guide we’ve put together to help you prepare for your Exodus trip.

Where can I go on a cycling holiday?

There are lots of options. In Europe, we’ve got a fantastic range that includes famed regions such as the Swiss Alps, France’s Loire Valley, the Spanish region of Valencia and various other Mediterranean coastal routes.

If you want to venture further afield, why not embark on one our cycle tours of the Indian state of Kerala, our Vietnam adventure or the premium Indochina and Angkor cycle holiday that covers three breath-taking south-eastern Asian countries?

What is the duration of a cycling holiday?

With us, you can choose from short cycling breaks that last 6 days to longer holidays of up to 14 days. Whichever you choose, we’ll make sure we pack tonnes of amazing highlights into the time you spend in the region.

Are the trips guided?

Some, but not all, of these holidays are guided. When you’re browsing each of our holidays, you can find out whether it’s guided or self-guided by checking out the bar at the top of the page that lists key information. 

If you’re thinking of joining a guided cycle trip, you may be wondering what your group will be like. Most Exodus groups are comprised of 5-16 people who love to travel and embrace the outdoors lifestyle. You’re likely to meet solo travellers, couples and friends travelling together from all walks of life.

What should I pack for cycling holiday?

Wondering what to take on a cycling holiday? You should pack a couple of pairs of shoes with cycling cleats (including a spare pair in case something happens to your original pair). Bring a helmet, some sunglasses and consider some suncream too.

For your bike, it’s a good idea to bring front and rear lights with spare batteries in case these need changing while you’re on the move.

Don’t forget that you’ll need to stay hydrated as well, so it’s a good idea to bring a couple of bottle cages for the bike and two large water bottles. If you’re hiring a bike from us, please be aware which bike size suits you so that we can match you up with a comfy pair of wheels.

Check the essential details of your holiday on the overview tab to see what’s not included. For example, you will need to sort travel insurance yourself and potentially visas too.

What do I need to wear on a cycling holiday?

Don’t forget to bring cycling clothes that will keep you comfortable in the climate you’re travelling to. Consider whether you need long or short-fingered cycling gloves, arm warmers and leg warmers. A wind and waterproof jacket probably won’t go amiss, and neither will some quick-drying compression socks.

If your holiday includes dining out on an evening or swimming, make sure you pack appropriate clothing for these experiences as well!

What are the accommodations like?

We select the accommodations for our cycling adventures carefully because we know it’s important for you to take some time to relax and be comfortable on your break.

The accommodation you have depends on the holiday you choose, and you can get a better idea of what it will be like by reading the overview tab on the holiday you’re considering.

Overnight stays in hotels are part of most of our cycling holidays. Some include houseboat stays and homestays too!

Will food be provided?

Check the essential details relating to your holiday to find this out. Most of our guided holidays include breakfasts. Some trips, including our self-guided ones, leave it up you to sort your food arrangements throughout the day.

Wonderful way to explore Albania aboard a bike saddle will be for us less fit people pretty challenging cycling, but the rewards for one’s efforts were great incredible views, fantastic mountain scenery, beautiful coastline and rural landscape. Once again, having a local guide made a massive difference introducing us to a wonderful range of Excellent local food much of it, organic locally grown and us very tasty and nutritious. The history and culture of Albania is fascinating. Although it’s difficult to burp watch while cycling, it was wonderful to hear the gold orioles singing, and the bee aters calling above your head as you rode for a beautiful rural countryside

This is a great trip. More challenging than it looks on paper as most of the steepest climbs are off road. We had great weather although it was very hot for the most challenging climb. Even so, we all made it to the top successfully. Javier and Alberto were our guide and transporter and really made the trip special. I didn’t do the Camino for religious purposes but collecting stamps in your pilgrim passport along the way and travelling to the same places as everyone else on the route made this trip a bit different.
