Many of our easy cycling holidays in Europe are actually bike and boat cycle cruises. So you can retire for the night in one beautiful European venue, waking in another, for yet another great day of gentle and leisurely cycling, wonderful views and exceptional company!

You can then drink in the amazing sights of the area you are cycling through, safe in the knowledge that your belongings will be waiting for you when you arrive at your next destination.

Don’t worry, on our easy routes, there will never be too much cycling in one day – that will be saved for the more challenging holidays! These holidays also make for a great family holiday – nice flat cycle routes, plenty of stops and not too much cycling each day…perfect!

So take a look…go on and try something different this year! The weather in Europe is consistent throughout the spring & summer months, and it makes for a wonderful new experience, taking one of our easy cycling holidays in Europe!

Our easy cycling holidays offer short daily rides on mostly level terrain. A typical day’s ride will take 2 – 3 hours at a leisurely pace and the remainder of the day will be free for you to explore further or simply relax. These rides are particularly recommended for newcomers to cycling holidays and for families.

Our leisurely cycle holidays will suit those who are reasonably fit through regular exercise of one kind or another – not necessarily cycling. On the whole, the terrain will be level but there may also be a few small hills to contend with along the way too. Daily rides will typically take around 3 – 4 hours to complete.

Our moderate cycle holidays are for regular cyclists, who are used to longer rides with regular climbs. A good level of fitness is needed and you can expect to be in the saddle for between 4 and 5 hours each day.

These holidays are for seasoned cyclists who cycle long distances regularly and who enjoy the thrill of long days in the saddle. There will undoubtedly be some challenging climbs along the way and you can expect to cover between 55 and 75 miles each day.
