Self guided cycling holidays allow you more freedom to veer off the suggested route for viewpoints, picnics or vineyard tours. You can set your own pace and stop for coffee or lunch when you want to, without having to stick to the group's timings.

How does a self guided cycling holiday work?

Our self guided cycling holidays allow you to explore at your own pace, making them the perfect option for groups who do not want to be committed to a specific itinerary or timings. On many of our self guided cycling tours, our Destination Managers are on hand throughout to help should you require any assistance. You will also be well-equipped with GPS navigation and suggested cycle routes to ensure you get the most out of your self guided cycling holiday.

Best self guided cycling tours in Europe

Our self guided cycling tours in France, Italy and the UK are a fantastic way to see the continent. In France, the Loire and Provence are two of our favourite destinations for a self guided bike tour. In Italy, we recommend Emilia Romagna and the Amalfi Coast. Or if you’re looking to stay closer to home, our UK self guided cycling holidays in Sussex and the Cotswolds prove very popular.
