UK Cycling Holidays

The UK provides an enormous variety of scenery and terrain for such a relatively small country. Its patchwork of country roads, quaint villages, market towns, rolling hills, wild open moorland, dramatic mountains and varied coastline combined with the huge choice of pubs, cafes and accommodation make it an ideal destination for a cycling holiday.

Our range of UK holidays covers the length and breadth of England, Wales and Scotland, so take a look at the list below. Whether it's somewhere new or an area you'd like to explore again, your holiday will be led by one of our experienced Tour Managers, in the company of other keen cyclists.

It can, however, be completed by those with less cycling experience when completed over 6 days (rather than the usual 3-4 days).
