What are the best cycling holidays in Europe for families?

Family cycling holidays in Europe are not only a great opportunity for all the family to enjoy an active adventure together, but they also introduce you to hidden places on roads less travelled, away from the crowds. Follow self-guided routes among the famous vineyards of Cotes du Rhone, explore the whitewashed villages of Puglia or discover the rural orchards of Catalonia. The hilltop villages of Provence are particularly beautiful and there are plenty of opportunities to sample the delicious French cuisine with all the family.

What are the best cycling holidays in Europe for experienced cyclists?

If you’re a more experienced cyclist looking for something more challenging, we have several cycling holidays in Europe that will test your stamina and your mettle. You could tackle the off-road tracks and steep climbs of northern Spain along the Camino de Santiago de Compostela, explore the ancient castles of the South Wales Coast or ride through the Douro Valley, sampling some of the world’s finest wines en route. One of the greatest yet most exciting of all the cycling holidays in Europe is in North Macedonia and North Albania where you’re rewarded with views across lush gorges and emerald lakes.

Do I need to train for the cycling trips?

While many of our leisurely trips require no experience, you will still be cycling for at least a couple of hours a day and you should therefore prepare accordingly.

If you are looking at booking one of our challenging cycling trips you need to have a good level of fitness, and previous experience of cycling for long distances is essential.

We want you to get the most out of your holiday, so if you are in any doubt about the activity level of your desired cycling tour in Europe, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

How do I train for a cycling holiday?

Our cycling holidays in Europe are designed to be fun and enjoyable and will introduce you to some of the most incredible scenery, but it’s important that you choose the right kind of tour to suit your ability. Whichever cycling trip you decide on, you will need some degree of fitness. Make sure you improve your cardiovascular fitness and strengthen your legs and back before you go.

The best way to train for a cycling holiday is to cycle! By gradually increasing your mileage in advance of your holiday, tackling a few hills and cycling on different surfaces, you’ll build up your stamina and the muscles in your legs. It’s also worth cycling beforehand in different types of weather and make sure you get accustomed to carrying your kit with you too. If you do find that the weather really isn’t suitable for cycling on some days, head to the leisure centre for a spin class, swimming or a gym workout. Check out our cycling fitness plan for more in-depth training ideas.

What can I expect on a cycling holiday in Europe?

Our cycling holidays in Europe vary depending on their activity level. The levels range from leisurely and moderate to challenging, so of course, there will be different expectations for each. Our cycling fitness plan gives you more information about each activity level and what you can expect.

We offer both guided and self-guided cycling holidays. On our guided trips, you can expect a highly experienced tour leader who will guide you along carefully planned routes among breathtaking scenery. On many of the trips, the routes are a combination of tarmac roads, cycle paths and off-road tracks. Local bike hire is included, and E-bikes are also available on request. On both self-guided and guided tours, accommodation, a selection of meals and luggage transfers are included. Our self-guided cycling holidays in Europe also include the RideWithGPS navigation app and GPS route directions.

Are the cycling trips guided?

The majority of our amazing cycling holidays in Europe are self-guided, giving you the freedom to explore at your own pace. With our detailed route notes to hand you can discover Europe your way. We will of course still arrange your luggage transfers if you’re moving from base to base.

Our more challenging tours through mountain passageways, across borders and along ancient terrain are led by experienced guides. Not only will you get a unique insight into local life, but you’ll have friendly fellow cyclists to share the journey with too.

Either way, you’ll be able to discover the best of Europe on two wheels.

How long are your cycling trips in Europe?

You can enjoy one of our cycling trips in Europe in as little as four days, or if you are looking for a more immersive experience you can enjoy up to 15 days exploring Europe by bike.

All our trips have been tailored to ensure you get the most out of your cycling holiday in Europe with adequate time to enjoy the route and explore the beautiful terrain you’re traversing.

We were a private group of 9 chaps, none of us spring chickens. We went early-March, and the weather was generally warm apart from a couple of very chilly mornings. We were led there by our brilliant leader Mikhled; nothing was too much trouble for him, and he is very knowledgeable. A wonderful country, very friendly. The trip was a good mixture of biking and mini-bus transport. Highlights were Petra, Wadi Rum, the Dead Sea, and Red Sea/Aqaba. Some steep cycling downhill sections and the odd walk up hills – no great surprise at our age! Accommodation fine and food generally excellent; alcohol is sometimes available, sometimes not, so you need to plan a bit in advance if you like to imbibe, as we do. Overall view – highly recommended. (One tip – we were advised to take US dollars as well as Jordanian dinar; you only need the latter in reality).

Paul Watt Petra & Wadi Rum by Bike

This was a great trip because of the staff that were with us. The guide Anas was so accommodating and helpful, always smiling and wanting to share as much knowledge about Jordan as possible. No problem was too difficult for him to try to sort. The driver Walid was also hugely experienced and helpful. We were a very small group-3 of us and another super couple. Luckily it worked very well. There was a private group of 9 who were doing the same holiday and I presume that was how the 14 was made up. We were made to wait an hour every morning to let the private tour go first and this was probably the most annoying thing about the trip as we had to wait until 9.00 or 10.00 to leave and so had less time in the evening at our destination – a bit unfair but nothing our group had control over. Also think you should state there is really not much cycling in your brochure. And what cycling there is, is predominately downhill-and some of the downhill is very scary. Quite a few accidents between the 2 groups. We had a poor cycling guide who did not maintain a steady pace and this did not help with uphills and downhills. He seemed to care little what the group was doing, rarely looked behind and was also focusing on his training! Our guide spoke with him but I would suggest he is moved on. We had a day with an excellent cycling guide-ammar and so this guy’s failings really stood out.
