Things To Consider Before Booking Your Next Cycling Holiday

What time of year?

First things first do you have set dates to work with or are you flexible? Some countries may be better than others depending on the time of year. It can be pretty dangerous to cycle in the summer heat which is why some countries you can’t book during July and August. Your safety comes first, so we make sure the tours are at their best.

If you don’t mind cooler temperatures, then a cycling holiday that is available offseason could be a better choice. You may also find some cycling holidays available in the winter months or early season.

What level cycling holiday to choose?

Have you been on a cycling vacation before? If not, then a level 1, level 1-2 or level 2 holiday would be better if you haven’t been away on a cycling holiday before. These tend to be our easy cycling holiday to easy-moderate cycling holidays. You may find some of these ideal if you are looking for a family cycling holiday too.

If you are more experienced, then a 2+ holiday can be a great choice especially if you have been on one of our cycling holidays before. We also have a wide range of sporting holidays or cycling tours where you can ride road bikes.

Self Guided or Guided?

After 20 years in business, we have found that are self-guided tours are the most popular with our guests. We do how have some guided cycling holidays if any of these are of interest to you. Included in these guided cycling holidays we have some great bike and boat holidays which are normally guided and also some great sporting tours. Guided cycling holidays are great if you are looking to have the security of a local guide who knows the routes and region. You can also make some new friends with the rest of the group and speak with like-minded people while on holiday.
