Where can I experience cycling and mountain biking?

Cycling features in many of our holidays as it such a great way for families to actively explore an area together.

Whilst we have great days of mountain biking on offer in the Catalan Pyrenees and Turkey’s Mediterranean coast, we also offer some unique routes further afield.

During our holiday in Ecuador, families explore the area around the Cotopaxi Volcano and descend the Tungurahua Volcano for a thrilling adventure in awesome surroundings – not a bad day on a bike!

What you need to know

Our cycling and mountain biking trips are designed for families and you do not need to be Chris Froome to take part. If you can ride a bike proficiently and have an average level of fitness then you should have a great day.

You will be provided with a bike of an appropriate size as well as a helmet for your trip, you may like to take some cycling gloves if you have them but they are not essential.

Our mountain bike trips are not technical but they include significant off road sections so you should be confident on a bicycle on varied terrain.

The routes are undulating but gentle and there will be plenty of time for breaks and water stops, you’ll also stop off on the way to look at points of interest, so there is no rush.

In warmer climates you do need to take the heat into account and ensure that you are well protected from the sun and carry plenty of water for your journey as cycling in the sun can be tiring.

Support vehicles accompany the group in many destinations so that you can take a break in the van and stock up on water, but during all of our holidays a guide will be on hand to deal with any mechanical or physical issues.

Your peloton will travel at the pace of the slowest rider and so these cycling days are also really sociable.
