TIMELESS JOURNEYS BY BICYCLE
We believe travel is worth taking time over; that a great holiday means getting under the skin of a place and discovering the food, customs, history and people that make it special. Our guests are discerning travellers with a bit of juice in their legs; those who appreciate our intimate knowledge of some of Europe and Africa’s most special landscapes and cultures. Most request private guided cycling holidays with groups of friends but some just walk, and we do host a small number of scheduled journeys each year too. We hope you’ll come along for the ride.
“ The most perfect trip. I don’t know how you’ve managed to find all the incredible behind-closed-doors secrets that you have, but there were just never ending delights. Wonderful. ”
“ One of the best holidays we have ever had. Pure magic from beginning to end. We have been riding on a high ever since returning home and have been telling everyone. ”
In recent years we have immersed ourselves in the beautifully preserved, idyllic Saxon villages of Southern Transylvania, in the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains. We host cycling and walking in private groups or on scheduled dates.
Zagori is a land apart from modern Greece. Set amid a breathtakingly beautiful corner of the Pindos Mountains close to the Albanian border, its clear rivers, ancient villages and genuine local hospitality mean when we visit, we never want to leave. We host cycling and walking in private groups or on scheduled dates.
We know Tuscany beyond the tourists; one that is bursting with medieval citadels, remote forests, fabulous home-cooked food and artisans and winemakers maintaining age-old customs. We host cycling and walking in private groups or on scheduled dates.
Oli, our founder, lived in Rwanda for two years. This gem has it all: lush green hills, lakes, smoking volcanoes and, of course, gorillas. Our favourite corners are undiscovered and unbelievably majestic. We host cycling and walking in private groups or on scheduled dates.
“ I can't think of a better way to spend quality time with friends and family. An exceptional experience from start to finish. ”
Allow us to create the perfect journey for you and your friends or family.
