Cycling Holidays UK

What to expect on a UK cycling holiday?

The Great British countryside is home to dramatic coastlines and rolling fields of green that will make it hard to believe you are still in England on your next cycling holiday or cycling weekend escape. Our carefully curated cycling tours in Sussex and the Cotswolds are designed to bring you the very best that Britain has on offer, with plenty of wide open space and fresh air to enjoy. And, of course, it wouldn't be a Softies holiday without expert tips for where to find the best afternoon cream teas, beachside ice creams and fine wines from the vineyard estates that you will discover en route.

Looking to get away for a shorter break? We also offer short break cycling weekends in the Cotswolds and Sussex - the perfect way to escape and recharge over a long weekend.

  • East Sussex cycle routes
  • Riding the South Downs Way
  • Scenic Chichester cycling paths
  • Cycling weekends in the UK

Highlights

  • Riverside and coastal cycling paths
  • Peaceful countryside lanes
  • Boutique spa hotels

We are excited to present our new selection of UK tours in some of our favourite picturesque pockets of English countryside. We hope these offer you the opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy the fresh air on a luxurious cycling holiday that is a little closer to home.

What to Expect

Our itineraries tick off a sumptuous selection of historic landmarks such as the iconic Arundel Castle and the chalky white Seven Sisters cliffs.

 

When you have had your fill, return to our hand-picked boutique spa hotels and classic English country houses where you can indulge in an award-winning spa treatment, a deluxe three-course evening meal or a dip in the outdoor pool complete with luscious green country vistas.

Eco-friendly Cycling

These destinations are accessible by rail or car within the UK, meaning you can relax and enjoy the privacy of your own space on your journey. Not only does this offer great value for money, switching a flight for a train journey has added sustainability benefits and reduces the overall carbon footprint of your holiday.
