About our Self-Guided Cycling trips

We've planned the routes of our self-guided cycling trips to include the must-sees as well as the off-the-beaten-track sites. We'll send you detailed route notes with maps to follow and transfer your luggage between night stops. You choose the dates, your travel companions, and even your start time and rest stops along the way. This is our most flexible way to travel. Our bestselling self-guided cycling trips could see you exploring Puglia or the Prosecco route in Italy, navigating coastal paths in Portugal, cycling along the Danube or Loire Valleys or circumnavigating Lake Constance.

Why Choose a Self-Guided Cycling trip? 

  • Maximum flexibility - Choose the best date for you and depart on any day of the week. Get up when you want, start your day early to catch the sunrise or enjoy a lie in – it’s your vacation after all! Ride at your own pace, stop for coffee and cake or to take a photo whenever you feel like it.
  • Choose your travel companions – Travel on your own, as a couple or with friends – you choose who you go with.
  • Local support – On a self-guided trip you still have full support from our local crew. They transport your luggage while you cycle and provide 24/7 emergency back-up in case you lose your way or need help.
  • Value for money – Take advantage of our negotiated accommodation rates and low-cost airlines. Pick off-peak days and dates to keep the costs down further. Cycling and travelling under your own steam saves you the cost of a guide and driver.
  • Feel good factor – Navigating from point to point and completing a well-planned route, as well as the physical exertion of getting yourself to your destination under your own steam will give you a great sense of satisfaction.
  • Bike Hire Included - A good quality bike suited to the route and terrain is included in the price of our self-guided trips. Each hotel has bike storage and gives a warm welcome to cyclists. All bikes come with a lock, puncture repair kit and a pump. Most bikes are fitted with a pannier bag to carry the items you’ll need during the ride. Local support is on hand in the rare event of a problem with your bike, although you will need to be able to fix your own puncture if you get one.
  • E-bike options - We offer the option of electric bikes on certain self-guided trips. Electric bikes (or e-bikes) assist you when it gets tough; especially on uphill sections or longer rides. This allows you to conserve your energy, and makes your experience much more enjoyable if you don’t like uphill riding. You can then throw yourself into the easier ascents, flat parts and descents, and the bike will recharge when you’re using your own pedal power. If you’re interested in using an electric bike, just enquire at the time of booking.
