For those looking for a very accessible cycling holiday or a really laidback break, mainly on the flat with some gentle slopes. Short distances of between 10-20 miles / 15-35 kms per day.
If you‘re looking for short, daily distances on flat terrain, with plenty of time to go at your own pace and explore your destination, then our grade 0 holidays are could be for you.
For the infrequent cyclists, routes with gentle slopes but avoiding any steep climbs. Distances of between 15-25 miles / 25-40 kms per day.
For families who cycle occasionally and would like to do a little more. Perhaps the area you live doesn’t lend itself to novice riders and you’re looking for an opportunity to try some quiet roads or cyclepaths or a more active alternative to your usual holiday. For those looking for a mix of activity and sightseeing then we recommend our grade 1 trips.
For the frequent cyclists who exercise regularly. Routes will include some steeper cheeky climbs and distances of between 20-40 miles / 35-65 kms per day.
For families who are fit an active who are looking for a little challenge and a sense of achievement. Although your preference is for generally flatter terrain you don’t mind the occasional steeper climb. If you have all day available to you and you are happy covering up to 40 miles. If this sounds like you then you might enjoy our grade 2 trips.
For more experienced riders who cycle regularly. Includes some steep climbs and distances of between 25-50 miles / 40-80 kms per day.
For families who and regularly enjoy cycling as one of your forms of exercise. Weekends can occasionally see you spending the day in the saddle exploring routes which take in some steep climbs. If you’re all generally fit and manage to ride regularly, this could be the level for you.
