Experience

It’s a lot more than just riding your bike.

At procyclingtours we believe a cycling holiday should be more than just about riding your bike. While that is naturally our main focus, our tours are designed to provide you with a complete holiday experience. And all you have to do is get yourself to the pick up point and we take care of the rest.

Sleep

A premium holiday is enhanced by premium accommodation and to compliment the days spent riding and sightseeing, at procyclingtours we make sure that at the end of the day we unwind in beautiful lodgings. All our accommodation has been handpicked taking into consideration the needs of cyclist, prime locations and superb facilities. Where possible, we will always select something a little more luxurious or memorable including chalets, chateaux's and guest houses, all of which are considered for their superior service and high standards. Our accommodation is always 3 to 4 star or above.

Eat

Delectable food and wine makes up a large part of any holiday, and at procyclingtours this is no exception. We provide full breakfast on each day of your tour while all dinners provided comprise a minimum of three delicious courses and drinks. We usually dine on cuisine created by the chef of the lodging or visit a local restaurant. Again all have been specifically selected to provide you with an unforgettable dining experience, whether it be a Michelin star restaurant, creations served by a Professional, Maître Cuisinier of France or even a gourmet cook who has served meals for the likes of Sting and Madonna, we offer it all. To truly immerse yourself in any culture requires mingling with the locals, and that’s why we also give you a night or two off on each trip to discover local delicacies for yourself. Naturally we will always provide recommendations.

Drive

Your ride off the bike should be comfortable too. At procyclingtours we use modern, clean and comfortable 9 seater vans. All vans are air conditioned. These vans not only act as your support vehicle on every ride, but become your chauffeur driven transport and sightseeing chariot. The use of roof bike carriers ensures your bike is also safely taken care of. We prefer the use of vans (where possible) instead of larger buses and coaches, as it allows us to get onto more quieter back roads and up those classic climbs as well as getting closer to the racing action. On board, we offer an array of cold drinks and snacks during all rides and of course unlimited lollies!

See

'It's all about the journey, not the destination’ is one of our favourite quotes and we know that a holiday is not complete without soaking all that the surrounds have to offer. As part of providing a complete, unforgettable holiday, at procyclingtours we value the importance of 'smelling the roses'' so on all of our trips we allow time for exploration and sightseeing. This can include arranging specific tours, perusing local markets, discovering ancient villages or simply sipping on the local fare as you watch the world go by. Each day you can choose to ride as much or as little as you like or simply not ride at all. We also welcome clients not wanting to ride, particularly partners of cyclists who want to know what it is their other half gets up to on their bike!

Enjoy

To make sure you return home feeling refreshed, relaxed and perhaps even a little fitter, we make sure we take care of all your needs while on a trip. We really do care about each of our clients and make every possibility to deliver on all their expectations, as a result, we have many return customers. All you need to do is get yourself to the collection point on day 1 and we then take care of the rest! We can even point you in the right direction with flights if you need. We also have multi-lingual guides on each trip who all have intimate knowledge of the areas we visit. And before you leave, we are in regular contact to keep you updated and provide you with advice including packing list suggestions, training advise and anything else you might want help with. The only thing we can’t help you with is turning those pedals!
