Coastal Cycling Holidays

Our coastal cycling holidays are all about riding along beautiful coastlines enjoying sea views, lovely beaches, swimming breaks and exploring charming little ports and coastal villages.

Some routes follow the rugged Atlantic coasts of France, Spain and Portugal while others trace the more tranquil shoreline of the Mediterranean in Croatia, Italy, France and Spain. All offer sea views galore and lung fulls of fresh sea air.

Stopping at a gorgeous beach for a cooling mid-ride dip is one of the many appealing treats of these rides as is coming across that perfect little seafood restaurant with a table just waiting for you in the shade.

Some of our coastal holidays are also cycle cruising holidays, meaning you stay on board a motor yacht, complete with crew, and cruise to a different port or island each day, disembarking for wonderful rides through stunning scenery.

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. 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.

Moderate:
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.

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.
