To get a feel for how our cycling holidays work, watch our video.

We offer a wide and varied range of independent cycling holidays suitable for anyone who enjoys longer rides in the hills, short cycles exploring local places of interest, or even just an occasional pedal to the nearest shops. Like all our holidays, our independent cycling holidays are for individuals, not groups, enabling you to explore entirely at your own pace. We use a numeric grading system to help you narrow down the holidays that are right for you. Grade 1 holidays explore the easiest of lanes and trails while, at the other end of the scale, grade 2-3 holidays feature numerous ascents each day. The definitions of the different grades are given below.

Choose a grade 1 self-guided cycling holiday if you want...

...easy cycling for all with shorter days mainly on the flat, but some gentle ascents.

Choose a grade 1-2 self-guided cycling holiday if you want...

...easy-to-moderate cycling featuring undulating routes with more frequent short ascents, and a mix of shorter and longer days.

Choose a grade 2 self-guided cycling holiday if you want...

...moderate cycling with some longer, steady uphill sections, and longer days.

Choose a grade 2-3 self-guided cycling holiday if you want...

...fairly strenuous cycling featuring longer days with some sustained climbs.
