Mountain Bike and Cycling Holidays Worldwide
Types of Biking Holiday
Our biking holidays are separated into 3 types, based on terrain and the type of bike and tyres needed.......
These are our most technically demanding mountain bike holidays, generally on single track, dirt roads and jeep tracks, with the vehicle support not always able to follow the riders. A hardtail mountain bike with suspension forks, or a full suspension cross-country bike is required. Knobbly off-road tyres are also needed. Most involve a journey such as the Pokhara to Kathmandu mountain bike ride in Nepal. However some have more of a day-ride format from a single base or a number of bases, like Guatemala's Ride on the Wild Side.
These mountain bike holidays are almost always journeys like biking from the Dead Sea to the Red Sea in Jordan, and some are extreme in length, such as the 950 kilometre (600 mile) Lhasa to Kathmandu mountain bike ride across the Himalayas. On the easier scale we have a cycling tour of Rajasthan. A support vehicle will follow the group on almost all sections of the ride. A mountain bike (usually either a hardtail or a lightweight full suspension model) fitted with semi-slick tyres is ideal for these cycling holidays.
These cycling holidays are all classic road journeys, requiring a road bike or a standard touring bike, fitted either with a compact or a triple chainset. A support vehicle will accompany the biking group and carry all baggage. Our collection of road cycling holidays include some epic journeys such as the 'Route des Grand Alps' - Geneva to Nice cycle tour and our 'Pyrenees Raid' cycling via Tour de France Cols. And if you are looking to go further afield we also have road cycling holidays in Thailand and Morocco.
