Our leisurely cycling tours aren’t about clocking up the miles, they're about the time you'll spend in between. With a warm summer breeze on your skin and beautiful views in every direction, is there any better way to explore the beautiful wine regions of France, Italy, Spain, Portugal and the UK than by bicycle?
We don't think so. Because there is so much to see and do along the way, our leisurely cycling tours are all about taking it nice and slow. From the lavender fields of Provence to coastal routes in Sardinia, our cycling holidays have so much to offer. Stop and explore, eat glorious meals, stay in delightful hotels (your luggage is carried for you) and indulge in the knowledge that everything else has been taken care of.
We are delighted to share with you our cycling trips in Spain and Portugal. Embark on a gourmet adventure in Catalonia, as you take in the cultural sights and gorgeous architecture. Or head to the scenic Douro Valley, where vineyard vistas and wine tasting await you.
The Cycling for Softies team were all great, both in the office and on the ground. We are already looking to do our next one!
Everything was wonderful from our itinerary, hotel and communications throughout the process. If you want a hassle-free trip this is the way to go.
Our senses were overloaded with smells, tastes and beauty. The cycling was made easy with comfortable electric bikes; I would recommend to everyone.
From first contact to the end of our trip Cycling for Softies created a wonderful holiday for our family.
We had the most fantastic holiday, the scenery was beautiful, the hotels were lovely and we felt really looked after.
From start to finish, this was truly an experience we will treasure. Brilliant from the first inquiry till now.
Everything was so well organised, thoroughly enjoyed the bike rides and evening meals in different restaurants
Interesting, varied route of the perfect length each day. The directions app is great, and we loved how the bakeries and cafes/shops were marked along route
The rejuvenating feeling of freedom that cycling through the countryside brings, the continually changing scenery and the confidence that wherever we cycled, stayed or ate, it was all thoughtfully chosen and of a high standard.
All was terrific. Bikes were excellent, hotels were extremely well chosen and "Ride with GPS" and the full folder of hard copy guides were really useful. All the restaurant recommendations provided were excellent too.
We loved the variation in journeys. Five star - fantastic.
Anyone who enjoys the outdoors and is relatively healthy and happy to explore under their own steam. We really believe that across our range of cycling tours, there is something suitable for almost anybody.
Once you have arrived at your destination, our representatives will meet you and talk you through the suggested cycling routes, best stop off points and how it all works. While you are cycling each day, our representatives will take all your belongings to the next hotel ready and waiting for when you arrive. You can then enjoy a delicious evening meal accompanied with the local wines.
Our leisurely cycling holidays aren’t about clocking up the miles, they're about the time you'll spend in between. We feel that our holidays strike the perfect balance between activity and decadence. Electric bikes are available on most of our tours and are an increasingly popular choice for those who would like that extra boost.
