Guided and Self Guided Sporting Cycle Tours in Europe

Hooked on Cycling & Walking > Guided and Self Guided Sporting Cycle Tours in Europe

Welcome to Hooked on Cycling’s road bike sporting cycle tours and our road bike based trips. We have both guided sporting holidays and self-guided bike vacations are for the sporting cyclist. These are perfect for those who want to ride a race bike and are looking for a more demanding cycling holiday than our regular breaks. They are an excellent choice for those who cycle year-round and are looking for something more challenging than the average family bike tour.

Our choice of itineraries includes many fantastic routes in beautiful parts of Europe such as TuscanyEnglandBavariaProvence, and Scotland. We also have guided cycle tours in Emilia Romagna.

The Right Equipment

On our sporting bike tours, we have racing (road) bikes to rent, if you would rather leave your pride and joy at home while you relax and enjoy your holiday. Our sporting breaks cover more miles per day than our standard tours and generally take place in hillier terrain. Which is why it is important to have the right equipment in order to enjoy each day’s riding to the full. Our racing-style bikes have plenty of low gears to cope with steep inclines as well as high gears that will help you to eat up the miles on the flat. These highly capable road bikes are also available to rent on standard road bike cycling tours. So, if a sporting tour is not for you but you would still like to rent a road bike please contact us for more information. All of our machines are well maintained, recent models.

The Right Ingredients

There are many ingredients that go into making the perfect holiday and you will find them to be in plentiful supply, whichever of our cycle breaks you happen to book. Clean, comfortable accommodation at affordable prices, delicious food and drink available throughout the journey, beautiful destinations just waiting to be explored, and routes that afford breath-taking views from start to finish are all key ingredients of our sporting bike holidays. If you are looking for a summer adventure that not only gives you the opportunity to really stretch your legs over a mixture of easy and rough terrain but that also features stop off points where you have the time to explore beautiful surroundings at a leisurely pace, these tours are ideal.

The Right People

Our team is comprised of fellow biking enthusiasts and experienced travel industry professionals, all of who are dedicated to ensuring that you have the holiday of a lifetime when you join one of our sporting cycle tours. Whether you fancy cycling along a route with views over spectacular mountain lakes in Germany or spending a week in a cycle resort in Italy, we have the perfect package for you. Our legendary attention to detail and flexible approach to problem-solving will ensure that wherever you go, you will have a truly wonderful experience.
