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.

Six days of cycling on and off road, tough but super enjoyable and interesting. Lucky to have a great group and tour guide, Alfonso.

Lori Phillips Cycle the Camino de Santiago
I was drawn to this trip because I wanted to visit and learn more about this fascinating part of the world which has such a dramatic history. As it was my first cycling holiday I was also keen to choose a trip that wasn’t too strenuous and offered a good balance of activity and cultural interest. The trip fully met, and in fact, exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend the trip as a way of having a really enjoyable and active holiday while experiencing the history and culture of these proud and vibrant countries. (The fantastic weather was a lovely bonus!)
Catherine Bannatyne Cycle the Baltics

A fascinating trip through the 3 Baltic countries. The terrain was quite flat and the cycling easy over an amazing mix of forest trails generous cycle paths and some road travel. We were blessed with good weather and even managed to swim in the Baltic 3 times. The tour gave us a great insight into the conditions within all 3 countries during the Soviet era and how things have changed since then. The trip encompassed a wide range of activities and experiences ranging from climbing a forest fire watch tower to descending into the depths of an old Soviet nuclear missile site. Our travels were very much “off the beaten track” and we were able to meet the locals and had the opportunity to sample the local cuisine, including pink beetroot soup, smoked herring and potato-covered “zeppelins”.
