Riding Levels


Home Bike Tours | Riding Levels

We love Cycling and our tours accommodate all types of experiences and activity levels, whether you are a Newbie or an Ex-Pro! 

For us, it is all about offering options, whether there be extra route notes for shorter or longer daily rides, or even a lift in the support van on a tour, etc..  Get as much or as little cycling as you want.

Our routes are graded from EASY Going to CHALLENGING for self guided and guided tours.

For our ALL LEVELS tours we recognise each cyclist is different and it is all about us being flexible with Distance / Ascent gain as we have a support van / ebikes, which works well with groups of different cycling experience. For example, a Challenging Tour can be made Moderate due to a support van enabling the rider to escape the larger ascents.  Giving you options, to make your trip, Great!

For those keener on the miles,our guides are also around to ride with post ride, or there are extra notes to add on more miles. A good holiday option for couples or friends with different riding abilities is also the introduction of an e-bike, which helps even out those hills!

Have any questions, do Ask! We have years of experience in helping choose the cycle tour that is right for you.
