Group Cycling Tours

What to expect on our group cycling holidays in Europe

Are you searching for group cycling holidays in France, the UK and Italy? Whether you are looking for self guided cycling tours or perhaps you and your friends would prefer to have a 'Cycling for Softies' guide to show you the best sights. On some of our group cycling tours, especially in Italy, we offer guided cycling with a cycling leader. 

Explore the rolling hills of Tuscany & Umbria in Italy on two wheels with plenty of time for scenic stops and vineyard visits, before you head back to your luxury accommodation to relax with friends after a day in the saddle. On The Provençal Experience tour, you'll have the chance to experience the excitement of group cycling holidays in France. Sit back in the saddle and enjoy the views as your expert guide takes care of leading your group. Group cycling holidays in the UK are also a fun option, with our Cotswolds Country Escape making a fabulous break to the countryside with friends.

Speak to our cycle experts today to find out more about our group cycling tours in France, the UK and Italy with Cycling for Softies.
