Holidays that move you

The world's leading independent cycling holiday specialist...

For over 25 years we have had one simple mission: to inspire as many of you as possible to travel by bike. We believe there's no better way to really experience a place, its people and its culture. More than ever before, we know that to travel is a privilege and we can't wait to bring you more adventures on the bike again in 2021. Before then, you can read our dedicated COVID-19 page, which includes information about how we have adapted our cycle tours.
