European Cycle Tourism Locations

L’Ardechoise

Home to the 3 road cycling grand tours, the majority of the World Cup MTB locations, Europe is a paradise for cycling holidays, either on a guided tour or self-sufficient. With an increasing number of ebike cycle tours too, a whole world of adventure is now accessible for all.

From epic road climbs in the Italian Alps, to the whipping down seemingly endless descents on alpine trails, or touring Europe’s largest freshwater lake at Lake Balaton in Hungary, there really is something for everyone. Transylvania is a hidden gem within Europe, filled with beautiful mountains to explore on trail or tarmac, including the epic Transgarafasen road  and a wealth of history for apré ride activities too.

Let us help you to discover the possibilities of a Bikecation adventure in Europe, with our expert guides on  where to ride and places to stay. Just sit back and enjoy the journey with us.
