Whether you're a keen cyclist or more of a weekend bike rider, we think cycling is one of the greatest ways to explore the world. From organised small-group cycling tours in Japan to bike holidays in Europe, there's a cycling trip for you.
Our trips all have a cycling grade from Easy (typically flat, leisurely rides) to Challenging (which cycle hillier and longer routes). Most of our tours are graded from Easy to Moderate, but for keener cyclists, we do also offer some Challenging tours. You can even hire E-Bikes on our Cycling holidays for a small additional cost. Read more about our cycling grades here.
How can I prepare for a cycling holiday?
We recommend that you spend some extra time in the saddle before you set off for your cycling holiday – how much time will depend on the trip that you’ve chosen, and its grade. It’s also important that you get the right kit – from clothing to helmet – and think about snacks and sustenance. Read more about how to prepare for your cycling holiday.
Can I take my own bike on an Explore cycling holiday?
We supply good quality bicycles on all our cycling holidays. You can find the full details of bikes included on the trip pages. However, it is also possible to take your own bike if you’d like to. Please contact our expert team before your holiday to let us know you’d like to bring your own bicycle, or if you want to find out more about the bicycles we supply.
