Challenging Bike Tours in Europe: France, Spain, Italy and Czech Republic
Ever dreamed of cycling up Alpe d’Huez, Mont Ventoux or the Col du Galibier? Join one of our bike tours to experience some of the best and most challenging routes that Europe has to offer. Whether you’re putting in base miles for your upcoming season, training for your next century or are just looking for a challenging and scenic cycling vacation, one of our bike tours will be a good match for you.
Ride Like a Pro …
Our cycling tours are designed with the passionate cyclist in mind. Unlike so many cycling tours out there, we don’t try to fill up your day, combining sightseeing with the daily ride. We believe that dilutes both experiences. Instead, we divide the day into two parts: riding and free time. Our rides are designed to challenge, motivate and inspire you, but still give you enough time to explore the amazing regions we visit.
And just because you want to ride like a pro, doesn’t mean you have to be one to enjoy our trips. All routes are accompanied with a support vehicle.
… Live Like a Local
We know how important riding is to you. We also know that immersing yourself in the local area can hold great rewards too. On our cycling trips we stay in small, private inns that give a real sense of the region. Think of it as ‘our house’ and ‘cycling base camp’ for the week. Each property has been chosen because of its authentic flavor and sense of the local culture. And since you’re not having to continually move from one hotel to the next like you do on other tours, why not unpack, relax and explore your surroundings? Live like a local, live “in situ”.
