Our Historic Tours are not only about cycling through some of the most picturesque European spots, but about enjoying and exploring other countries rich histories and culture.

Our tours take place in some of Europe’s interesting spots. The Romans dominated much European history through their power and, as a result when in Italy it’s difficult to miss the impact of their work. Spain, particularly Catalonia, is also home to many Greek and Roman ruins of the sixth century and are exciting places to explore. Whilst, in France the Loire was the playground of the French and English royal families for over 1000 years, illustrated by the 42 chateâux which make up the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

If history is your thing, you are sure to love this fantastic collection.
