Easy Cycling Holidays

Our easy cycling holidays in Europe can be enjoyed by just about anyone who can ride a bicycle but are particularly suitable for beginners, families with small children and cyclists who prefer shorter daily rides, leaving plenty of time for other things like sightseeing or simply relaxing.

Our easy cycling holiday routes follow mostly level terrain, possibly with one or two short climbs but these are definitely the exception rather than the rule and all come with clear and concise route notes that are easy to follow.

Besides regular bikes, which are always on offer, E-bikes are an option on many of our easy cycling holidays and give extra peace of mind to customers concerned about whether or not a tour might be slightly too challenging for them. Electric bikes do not offer a completely free ride but do allow the rider to engage a little battery powered assistance as and when the need arises.

Easy:
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.

Leisurely:
Our leisurely cycle holidays will suit those who are reasonably fit through regular exercise of one kind or another – not necessarily cycling.

Challenging:
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.
