Nothing beats the sense of freedom and connection you have with the landscape - than when you travel by bicycle ... and there are so many AMAZING places to explore in the world.
Vermont, Colorado and France are our favorites.

Touring on a bike is the very best way to truly experience a culture, engage with local people and best of all indulge in regional cuisines - without packing on the 'usual' holiday weight.

Cycling tours can be undertaken using a 'commercial' tour operator or alternatively you can do a 'self-guided' trip - both options have Pros and Cons.
Please read our advice about cycling tour companies.

Whichever style of touring you decide to choose - one thing you will need to know is how to pack properly - so we have created a 'Bicycle Tours Packing Guide'.

This guide gives advice on all the essental stuff to take to ensure that you have the most comfortable, hassle-free and enjoyable bicycle adventure possible.
