The lure of cycling in almost guaranteed sunshine under blue skies and set against a sparkling coastline is almost impossible to resist. Combine those things with stunning mountain scenery, fantastic fresh food and roads shared with drivers who respect cyclists, and its little wonder that our tours around the coastal regions and islands of Mediterranean Europe remain amongst our most popular.
Many of these Mediterranean destinations have also become popular training grounds for the pro’s such as Tuscany and Catalonia and watching the pro-teams whizz past on a training ride as you're tucking in to a post-ride Salad Nicoise, only adds to the thrill of riding in these beautiful locations.
With a variety of grades to choose from, depending on the level of challenge you're looking for, we’ve got lots of road cycling holidays that offer you sun-kissed roads and classic Mediterranean culture. Popular holidays include our epic Grand tour of the Med spanning not one but two countries, the beautiful Road to Ronda in southern Spain and options in Italy, from Tuscany on the mainland to the peaks of the Sardinian Mountains on the island where our Italian HQ, Skedaddle Italia, is based.
