A support vehicle accompanies the majority of the road cycling holidays. It is usually out of sight either ahead of the group or following from a distance behind. Apart from offering a safety net to anybody unable to complete a section of cycling it also provides a safe place to leave your day to day possessions that you do not want to carry on the bike. On certain biking tours, particularly those in cycling in France
and cycling in Spain
, the tour leader drives the support vehicle while the group follow cycle route notes. In these cases the support vehicle will regularly meet the group at certain points along the route to check on progress and assist with any problems. Again this is described in more detail on the tour notes.
With the combination of scenery, local culture, history and interesting sites an active holiday on two wheels can be a really rewarding way to discover a country. Destinations are very varied from the UK
, throughout Europe and to far flung places and exotic places such as Japan
or cycling in Cuba
