Cycling

Whether you're new to cycling or in search of the ultimate challenge, Breakaway cycling trips are the way to go. All our rides are carefully designed with relaxing, low-traffic riding in mind.

On our group, guided road cycling tours, full vehicle support allows us to head straight to the best cycling routes, as well as giving you the flexibility to ride as and when you want to. And relatively smooth surfaces mean we can cover good distances, discover an entire country and interact with the locals en route in a way that motorists never can. Follow scenic coastal routes along the vibrant Atlantic Coast of Portugal, challenge yourself riding across Italy from coast to coast through the heart of Southern Italy, or visit four historic capitals from the Czech Republic to Hungary; these are just a few of the possibilities in our tremendous selection of guided cycling tours.

We think our self-guided cycling holidays, going at your own pace, are another way to get a real experience of a country. A self-guided ride gives the most scope for independent exploring, as you can adjust the route using our maps and detailed route notes. Our suggested routes take you along quiet country lanes and go by the places we think are the most interesting. There are options for avoiding hills, and suggestions for detours and off-road explorations. All tours are graded starting with just enough exercise to work up an appetite for the next great meal, with more challenging route choices if you are more energetic. None are extreme, and each is designed to give you ample time to sightsee and get a genuine experience of the culture, beauty and history of the places we go. And of course, your luggage is moved between hotels leaving you to carry just the daily essentials in your panniers.

All that remains for you to do is simply choose a trip that suits your ability and you are off!
