The guided tours offer a great way to ensure you don’t miss the best sights during your tour and can prevent you from getting lost during your journey. Guided tours usually include many popular sites, and can also highlight some great hidden wonders that you might not otherwise discover. The self-guided cycling tours can appeal to anyone with a strong sense of adventure, and you’ll also be able to enjoy your journey at your own pace. This is especially appealing if you’re travelling in a large group, or with friends of varying riding abilities. You’re free to explore certain areas, or skip over others that don’t interest you.

What to Consider When Planning Bike Holidays

The obvious factors to keep in mind when choosing and planning a bike tour include location, price, time of year and length of trip. Another important consideration is whether a bike is provided, or if you must bring your own. You’ll also want to ensure your level of fitness and biking experience is compatible with the riding conditions you’re likely to encounter.

We recommend using the filters found in the bottom left-hand column to evaluate the trip based on the following criteria:

  • Style of riding — Check whether the bike tour consists of road riding, off-road riding or a combination of the two. If you don’t have experience in the particular style of riding, a little training prior to the trip might be in order.

  • Rider level — Be honest with yourself about your riding level. Are you a beginner, intermediate or advanced rider?

  • Distance per day — Also think about how far you’re willing and able to travel by bike on a given day. You’ll find bike tours where you’ll travel less than 10km per day, while others may require up to 150km.
