6. What are the meals like on a cycling trip with Explore?
Enjoying the local food is a highlight of any trip and on a cycle tour you'll burn more calories and can indulge or reward yourself along the way. The number of meals included will vary by trip – check the trip page for details. On the majority of our tours we will include most breakfasts, which will set you up for the day. We don’t include all lunches and dinners so that you can decide what you eat - your Explore Leader will be happy to recommend places to eat and local food to try. You may want to join your group for meals or do your own thing, the choice is yours.
While you’re cycling, we’d recommend having some nutritious snacks packed, like fruit, cereal bars and energy gels. Generally speaking we don’t include these on the holidays but occasionally the leader may organise an optional kitty to supply snacks for the rides. Depending on where you go, you’ll likely be able to buy food along the way too.
