Of course, where to decide to cycle is a difficult one, not just for you, but where we choose to offer as suitable holiday routes. However, we have specially selected countries and areas that are the pick of an overwhelming choice of cycling options over a huge area. Essentially, the itineraries are tried and tested, with many being suitable to cyclists for many years now. Of course, as cycling becomes more popular and infrastructure to accommodate this becomes more modern and welcoming, such as longer and specific cycle paths, which are often flat with both excellent terrain and signage, traffic free and so absolutely ideal for almost perfect stress free cycling. Occasionally though, some cycling on minor or smaller roads, where unavoidable to connect between towns or areas, is required. We suggest that even a little training and experience of this beforehand will build confidence to approach such routes and we would certainly never expect anyone to cycle on major roads with lots of traffic anyway! Far more importantly though, the routes are selected to be fun and interesting, allowing someone to see, feel and even smell the very best local features on offer, be it beautiful and colourful flowers through to historic and must-see castles and chapels! And yes, every so often the legs may be tested with the occasional hill or mountain, but for us this is one of the indisputable joys of cycling. After all, what goes up, must come down and, even if someone is really apprehensive about trying to 'climb' on a bike - not to worry - we've thought of everything and so we might just be able to offer a nice 'option' to avoid the pain or worry of that type of cycling.....
