Cycling retreats

Whether you choose a retreat that specialises in cycling and has programmes dedicated to the sport, or one where cycling is one of the many activities offered, exploring your local area on a bike can be exhilarating. The retreats we’ve reviewed and recommend offer both options, and on their doorstep many have a myriad of beautifully maintained paths dedicated to cycling and e-biking. You could find yourself borrowing a cycle in Spain and exploring the Costa Blanca, just as easily as you might spend a whole day on the hilly outer roads of Maddelena and Caprera Islands on Sardinia. In Vietnam you could organise a bike tour to Marble Mountain, a pilgrimage site with great views over Danang, while in Ireland the Cliffs of Moher beg to be explored by cyclists. If you’re confident about your cycling skills, we have retreats where you can take in apple orchards and vineyards, wildflower meadows and alpine forests. Not been on a bike for 30 years? The less confident can book a retreat, where bike clinics and mental coaching will help with your confidence. You may wonder what to pack for a cycling holiday and what equipment is needed. Check with our retreats before you increase your luggage allowance – most of them provide cycling gear.
