Not everyone wants to spend their cycling holidays head down, chasing QOMs up mountains. For many riders a leisurely jaunt on the bike, exploring the local culture – including its food and wine – is just what the doctor ordered and thankfully there are plenty of holiday companies ready to offer just that.
We’ve teamed up with Freewheel Holidays, who provide relaxed family friendly holidays across Europe, to bring you some of their top locations to get you planning your summer breaks.
All of the Freewheel Holidays include luggage transfers, bike hire with panniers and equipment, route maps, accommodation and a tour host or local representative to guide your rides. There are e-bikes available for some rides – and in one case, you can even hire a scooter!
