Tried and tested accommodation and the best local food, wine and beer are just what you need after a day in the saddle.
We use various styles of accommodation depending on the destination. Wherever possible it will be characteristic of the area we are visiting and always good quality.
On group tours we provide plenty of snack stops en-route as well as a delicious buffet lunch, and where appropriate, tours include all your meals. Check out the Tour Detail Panel on each holiday page to find out how many meals are included. We cater for vegetarians and other special dietary requirements.
You are welcome to bring along your own bike – many people prefer to. We’ll advise you on relevant airline procedures. If you’d rather use one of our bikes that's fine too. In most locations we have a stock of bikes that are suitable for your particular style of trip, whether this is road cycling, mountain biking, leisure or family cycling. We've even kids bike and trailers too. If you are hiring a bike we will also provide a helmet, though we feel its a little nicer to bring your own along. You’ll also get a recommended kit list in your Pre-departure Dossier prior to departure.
Support vehicles are used on most of our guided and supported trips, except where the routes don’t allow access. The vehicle carries all your kit as well as bike spares, repair kit, first aid, snacks and lunch, leaving you to travel light and enjoy your holiday. If, at a certain point on the ride you want to rest or forget cycling for the day, you can hop aboard the vehicle and put your feet up.
