  • Easy Cycling Holidays

    Easy cycling holidays are perfect for anyone who is new the saddle and would like to explore on a laid-back bike tour, which goes at a gentle pace.

Easy Cycling Tours

How does an easy cycling holiday work?

If you're new to the saddle, or simply prefer gentler routes that are less about the gruelling hill climbs and more about the scenic lunch stops; then one of our easy cycling holidays might be the answer. We've perfected our collection of easier cycling itineraries to offer something for every type of laid-back cyclist - whether that's the option of using a power-assisted e-bike to give your legs a helping hand, or a trip comprised of short distances only, on flat terrain that is away from any busy roads. 

Whether you're travelling with all the family, a group of friends, your other half or on your own; our easy cycling holidays offer a wonderful and inclusive way of enjoying the beauty of France and Italy's wine regions on two wheels.

Click here for the best easy cycling routes in Europe.
