RidePlus Holidays

Self-guided trips for the cycling enthusiast.

Exodus’ sister brand Headwater has been operating high quality self-guided cycling holidays for over 30 years. With their exceptional first-hand knowledge of the finest cycling regions in France, Spain, Italy and beyond - together we have picked the best areas for the keener rider and added longer and more challenging routes while sourcing high spec road bikes, making their leisurely holidays perfect for the road bike enthusiast.


What is RidePlus?

RidePlus is an optional extra package, designed to enhance some of our best-loved self-guided cycling routes. It can be added to on to our existing itineraries, giving you options for longer rides. Standard and RidePlus cycling routes use the same hand-picked Headwater hotels each night, keeping the logistics simple. The standard route generally take a more direct, shorter route, whilst the RidePlus route takes a wider loop to reach the same end point.

RidePlus routes range from 50 kms (31 miles) to 100 kms (62 miles) in flatter areas; and from 45 kms (28 miles) to 70 kms (43 miles) in hillier terrain.

Please note: if you do not choose RidePlus, the standard routes range between 30 kms (18 miles) and 50 kms (31 miles) per day and aim to avoid longer hills.


What you get:

  • Longer, hillier rides, average daily distance 50-90kms
  • Upgrade to a high spec road bike (optional)
  • Same high-quality hand-picked hotels
  • Luggage transfers and navigation provided


How it works?

Just request the RidePlus option for the number of people who are wanting it in the comments box when booking online. Alternatively, if you are making a booking over the phone just let our sales agent know and we'll sort the rest out for you.

Before your departure you will be sent route details, showing you how to download the RideWithGPS files to your smartphone, or how to add the GPX files straight to your own Garmin Device.
