Touring: Cycling Holidays
Cycling holidays are a great idea if you like your holiday to be more energetic, healthy and varied. Special tour companies offer cycling tours, guided by experienced couriers so that even the most amateur cycler can enjoy the experience of a lifetime at his or her own pace. Routes are carefully planned in advance and hotels or campsite facilities and food are usually included. In fact, many couriers double-up as excellent chefs with impressive culinary skills. It goes without saying that cycling equipment is included as well. Luggage is usually carried on to the next point of rendezvous via 4x4 vehicle. This also acts as a rescue vehicle in the event of any minor accident or even a puncture or flat tyre.

Routes are not designed to be competitive and if the pace is too slow, some riders will go ahead and wait, while those at the back catch up along with a courier. There is normally more than one courier assigned to each tour in order to deal with this kind of situation if it arises. That said, tours are arranged for people with all ranges of experience and capability. For instance a tour would not be organized with really experienced riders and complete novices in the same group. There is always a choice of grade and terrain to suit and cater for the needs of everybody. Routes are clearly marked so there really is no issue of getting lost at any point.

Tours are always conducted in mixed sex groups and offer the possibility of meeting and bonding with interesting like-minded people. When it is time to eat in the evening, everybody eats together and socializes. In addition to just cycling from A to B, there is usually a certain amount of hiking involved on a cycling holiday. Afternoon walks offer the opportunity to experience the scenic beauty of an area.
