What to Expect from a BSpoke Cycling Tour

Posted 28 Feb 2019

BSpoke Tours are about offering cycling tours with a difference. Our dedicated team of cycling experts, with over 30 years’ experience in tailor-making cycling holidays, are passionate about sharing the opportunity to experience the great outdoors on two wheels. Whether you choose to wind your way past fairy-tale castles and sun-dappled vineyards in France’s Loire Valley or cruise along the winding Danube river by boat, you’ll be able to see the sights in a truly exhilarating style.

Choosing one of our destinations

Our holidays range from tours around the familiar shores of France and Italy to diverse cycling routes through Croatia, Slovenia or Montenegro that allow you to get off the beaten path; discover the postcard-perfect villages, unspoiled coves and hidden gems that the tour buses can’t access. We have cycling routes for those who enjoy meandering around the area and soaking up the scenery to road cycling tours up the steepest Cols and mountains for those looking to saddle up for some serious pedalling. We also offer fantastic bike and boat tours that merge the best parts of a cruise and a cycling holiday into one tour, you can explore a region on two wheels and then relax on your boat in the evening and cruise to your next destination.

Tour distances

Our tours come in all shapes and sizes, whether you want long winding cycle paths through the blissful Alpine mountains or a shorter route with plenty of time for stopping, resting and exploring - we have something for everyone. Choose from a range of short breaks if you're looking for a refreshing mini-break. Or, opt for a longer, more varied route such as the Golden Pass Line tour, where you'll explore some of Switzerland's most attractive cities - with wonderfully tranquil cycling in between.

Fitness levels

You don’t have to be up to Tour de France standards to embark on a BSpoke cycling holiday; while it helps to have a reasonable level of fitness to best enjoy your tour, training is not something to worry about. Our itineraries factor in lots of time for taking a break and exploring the area you’re in before you continue on two wheels. You also have the option of acquiring an E-bike on many of our tours, this allows you to spend more time enjoying the view and less time worrying about tired legs. 

What to bring

There’s no need to stock up on expensive kit for your first cycling holiday, but it’s always a good idea to bring comfortable, breathable clothing and multi-activity shoes. Lycra-padded cycling shorts can make your ride more comfortable, while fingerless gloves protect your hands. A light windbreaker jacket takes up little space, making it a handy option to keep wind-chill at bay on those dawn-to-dusk rides.

Tailor-made holidays

Our cycling experts can also help you tailor-make your dream cycling holiday so you can enjoy the ultimate flexibility whilst booking. You can choose whether you would like our experts to take care of your flights and transfers, to make the booking process that much easier. Do you prefer a shorter route with plenty of stops for exploring, or a longer route that allows you to cover more of the area? You can shorten the itinerary into a custom-made weekend break or extend your holiday to explore something you missed; we can even book your dinner reservations to save you time once you arrive. Our tailor-made holidays are all about making sure you spend your holiday doing the fun parts whilst we make sure everything is looked after.
