Cycling Information
During this trip you will cycle a minimum of 185 km during six days (and average of 26 km per day) with optional trips on most days. These cycling trips follow mostly well-surfaced tarmac roads and cycle paths. Inevitably, near the towns there is more traffic, but we have chosen alternatives wherever available in order to avoid busy roads. We have graded this trip as Easy to Moderate.

18 gear Coluer Rave Mountain Bike with lockable front suspension.
Luggage Transfer
Included between each hotel.
