Small Groups

Picos de Europa bike tour group
With an average group size of 6 to 8 people, when we say small group travel, we mean it! Our tours run with a maximum standard group size of 16 people.

We also run tours with no minimum - yes, we have offered fully supported trips to lone cyclists!  

The Routes

Morocco bike tour ride
Savvy travelers tell us that our routes are the very best in each of the regions that we cycle. They are constantly upgraded to take advantage of improved roads or to avoid roads that have become too busy. As cyclists ourselves we know that really enjoyable cycling is a combination of great scenery, good roads and interesting sights.

Guides

Our guides are top-notch - excellent mechanics and bi or tri lingual with English being a pre-requisite. Most of them are natives of Portugal, Spain or France. They’re dedicated to ensuring not only the welfare of each of our participants but also their enjoyment on tour – i.e. being informative, keeping the fun level high and the cycling safe!

Cuisine

Albania bike tour cuisine
Good food – so important to the cyclist! Our restaurants are chosen for their ambiance and superb regional dishes. Tasty tapas in Andalucia, mouthwatering fish dishes in Portugal and the finest Spanish & French cuisine in Catalunya. Mediterranean feasts - washed down with the best local wines – which are always included with the meals in generous amounts. This is a vacation after all!
