Wondering if a Self Guided Road Cycling Tour is suitable for You?
Will I be fit enough?
Will I be fit enough? – this area is mountainous, so each day will include some significant ascents. You need to be used to hill climbing and, particularly if you choose the toughest routes, be prepared for long days in the saddle. But dont forget that you will be riding through stunning scenery, so just take plenty of breaks and enjoy the views along the way.
Or consider using one of our e-bikes (small supplement applies). Pedal-assist e-bikes give battery powered assistance at each pedal stroke: they help you on the climbs but dont do all the work, so you will still get a bit of a work out. Perfect for couples with different cycling fitness - one of you can use a carbon road bike and the other can take an e-bike.
Navigation – we supply a simple Garmin GPS, preloaded with your daily road cycling tour routes. We also provide a large-scale, annotated map, giving you a perspective of where you are at all times.
Luggage – we transfer your main luggage each day, so you can tavel light. Just take a few items on your daily ride – plenty of water, snacks, sunscreen. Road bikes are fited with 2 bottle cages; e-bikes have 1 bottle cage and can be fitted with an 8 litre capacity rear trunkbag.
Roads and Routes
Roads and Routes – daily distances and difficulty vary according to the tour you select. Our road cycling tour routes use quiet, scenic roads for the majority of the riding. Drivers in this area are very courteous to cyclists, so even when you do meet vehicles, they will be respectful of safe distances and speeds, so you can still feel the freedom and joy of being out on the road.
