European Cycling Holidays

Extend your cycling summer in continental Europe! The traditional destinations of southern France, Spain and Italy all emerge early into the glorious Mediterranean spring. Soon to be followed by more exotic holiday destinations such as Albania and Bulgaria.

For the leisurely rider we offer centre-based holidays in rural villages and, for families with young children, an annual week in a continental chateau or hostel. Whilst the Alps and Pyrennes lure mountain-lovers of all shapes and sizes and the French Manche to Med and Spanish End to End rides challenge us all.
