Whether you’re a keen cyclist or enjoy the occasional bike ride at the weekend, or even if you’ve been inspired by the London Olympics and just want to give it a go, we have plenty of cycling holidays to choose from.
We cycle mainly on backroads and rural tracks, using mountain bikes or ‘hybrid’ bikes that are ideal for the terrain. These are supplied by us and included in the price of your cycling tour: you don’t need to bring your own bike or pay extra to hire one locally.
To be as flexible and unobtrusive as possible we cycle in small groups, usually with around 12 people, accompanied by a specially trained Explore leader whose knowledge of the route and passion for the destination will ensure you get the very most from your holiday.
We research our cycling holidays with real care, combining the best routes with all the destination has to offer. You’ll enjoy not just the challenges along the way and the sense of achievement at the end of each day, but also the joy of exploring on two wheels: watching the landscapes unfold ahead of you, meeting the local people and experiencing everyday life well beyond the reach of conventional tourism.
