Classic Biking & Cycling Itineraries

Ireland Cycling Tour

From the distinctive vistas of Connemarra to the famous Cliffs of Moher to the limestone landscapes of Burren National Park, a guided cycling tour is one of the best ways to experience Ireland. 

Day 1, Burren National Park: There’s perhaps no better way to travel through Burren National Park than on a cycling tour - slow down and enjoy the spectacular limestone landscapes, then lunch on lobster at a local restaurant. 

Day 2, Cliffs of Moher: Cycle along the coast of Ireland on along Wild Atlantic Way to the famous Cliffs of Moher. 

Day 3, Roundstone, Clifden: Your Ireland bike vacation takes you through sleepy Roundstone and along the dramatic coastline to Clifden, where you’ll dine at a delightful fisherman’s pub.

Day 4, Inishbofin: Hop a ferry to Inishbofin, keeping watch on the horizon for dolphins, and take a walk through Bronze and Iron Age ruins with a local archaeologist.

Day 5, Inagh Valley, Killary: Eat a hearty Irish breakfast to power you through another day of your idyllic Ireland guided bike tour, cycling through the Inagh Valley to Killary. 

Day 6, Galway, Dublin: Return to Dublin through Galway.

Cycling Tour in France

One of the most quintessential guided cycling tour destinations, France is awash in storybook countryside settings, ancient villages, olive groves and vast vineyards. From the Loire Valley to Provence, Chablis to Burgundy, experience the best of France by bike. 

Days 1-2, Burgundy: Set off on your guided bike tour of Burgundy, stopping in one of France’s designated Most Beautiful Villages: Noyers. From here, cycle along serene rivers, through lush farmland and into charming towns, such as Vezelay, with its World Heritage Benedictine abbey. Every turn in the road brings another jaw-dropping vista.

Days 3-4, Burgundy: Your cycle tour continues along the Burgundy Canal, through one fairytale village to the next. Learn winemaking history and traditions at a medieval chateau, explore Beaune and, of course, end a day of cycling in France with tastings of extraordinary Burgundy wines. 

Days 5-6, Burgundy: Round out your Burgundy cycling vacation along the Route des Grande Crus to Gevrey-Chambertin and Chassagne-Montrachet. Take private tours of medieval ruins and sample the region’s superb wine and cuisine.

Cycling Tour in Southeast Asia

With its melting pot of cultures, lush landscapes, relatively flat terrain, friendly people and incredible heritage, Southeast Asia is a rewarding destination for a first-time guided cycling tour. 

Day 1, London: Depart London with your new guided cycle tour friends.

Day 2, Bangkok: Get to know your fellow bikers for your tour of Southeast Asia.

Day 3, Ayutthaya: Warm up your legs on a trail through the old kingdom of Ayuttaya, learning about the age-old tradition of knife-making in Aranyik village.  

Day 4, Sa Keaw: Your guide leads you through rural Thai landscapes by bike, past rubber and eucalyptus plantations and rice fields. 

Day 5, Aranyaprathet: Your cycle tour continues towards Tha Krabak, stopping for a swim along the way, and getting closer to the Cambodian border. 

Day 6, Into Cambodia and Siem Reap: After driving to Siem Reap, you’ll cycle past Wat Athvea, a modern temple amidst the ruins of an Angkorian temple, and picnic at a market outside Siem Reap.

Days 7-8, Angkor: Get an early start with the other bikers on your Southeast Asia cycling vacation and have more time to explore Angkor and its many temples, including Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, the Bayon and Banteay Srei. Viewing Angkor by bike gives you a unique, close-up perspective. Cycle outside the main Angkor complex on the second day to Banteay Srei, built in the 10th century. 

Day 9, Phnom Penh: Transfer to Phnom Penh, preparing your legs for the next stage of your Southeast Asia biking tour. Stop in Sambor Prei Kuk, enjoy a traditional Khmer lunch and stop in Skuon, known for its local delicacy of fried spiders!

Puglia and Matera Magnifica Tour

Beppe Salerno was my guide on a cycling trip through Puglia in Southeastern Italy.

Although I had cycled for many years and ridden in Italy before this was the first commercial trip I had ever taken. Riding with Beppe was central to the unique experience provided by this trip.

Beppe provided unique insights into Italian life and culture as well as useful commentary on cycling routes and styles. His knowledge of Italian wines and cuisine transformed the trip from simply a “ride on a bicycle” to a gastronomic adventure. He introduced me to new wines, new dishes and to the people who grew, bottled and prepared them. We discussed history, dialects, regionalisms, music and architecture.

Beppe's skills are many. Paramount among them, in my opinion, is his ability to motivate people of diverse backgrounds and with widely divergent interests into a cohesive, collaborative group enjoying the company of others while reveling in the delights of a shared ride.

Umbria’s Green Valley: A Cycle Tour Through The Valle Umbra

We were visiting in Umbria and my husband found this tour. As it turned out, there were just four of us, so it was a nice small group. I'm not sure if her name was Michelle, but she was a terrific guide, married with kids and her husband is in the business too. Anyway, she was so knowledgeable and passionate about her city. Obviously very well educated about the history of the sites we saw. We've taken a number of tours all over the world and she ranked up at the top. It was easy to meet up. It was a hike and you end up at the other end of the city, away from where we met. But we had a delightful lunch mid-way back so it was not so bad. You do finish up near 1:30 so we had to hustle to get to lunch on time. I would not hesitate to recommend this guide and this tour. We would have missed out on so much if we had wandered around by ourselves. Read more

Trails of Vietnam

Viet Nam is a stunning country full of breathtaking scenery, friendly people and a rich and colourful history and culture. This trip packs a lot of punch into the two weeks and covers just about all of the main highlights the country has to offer. This is due to a very well organised itinerary and great organisational skills from the group leader. The food was the best I've tasted anywhere in the world and the variety and freshness of the dishes was huge. If you like seafood this is the place to visit! Got to mention the local beers as well - each region produces its own local beer so the trip from start to finish is a great beer tour! The hiking, cycling and kayaking were all excellent and amid some of the most amazing and varied scenery that I've experienced. This was topped off by visits to some excellent pagodas and temples and famous landmarks throughout. I stayed for an extra week after the end of the trip to visit the beaches and even after three weeks in Viet Nam I still didn't want to return home!
The biggest highlight for me was the river kayaking in Hoi An. I can't stress enough how scenic, peaceful and enjoyable this experience was. It was only my second time in a kayak after the Halong Bay kayaking but I doubt I'll ever top it.
The most inspirational part of the trip was the Vietnamese people themselves. Given how much trouble they've had to endure in their recent history, I never ceased to be amazed by their warmth and friendliness towards our group. Always smiling, waving and making us feel welcome.

Kien was great throughout the trip. He organised the itinerary and our activities well and went out of his way to try and accommodate everyone's wishes in the group. He was very knowledgeable about his homeland and provided plenty of information about the country as a whole and the different regions and sights that we visited throughout the trip. He even organised my coach transfers for my extra week to the beach after the end of the trip for which I'm extremely grateful. Thanks Kien.

Firstly I would say Exodus have pitched this holiday just right. Plenty of activities throughout but as in the trip notes with an activity level of 3 you know its not going to be particularly strenuous so most people with a moderate level of fitness will have no problems.
No need to take as many clothes as you may think because there's an option for laundry mid way in Hoi An.
Don't bother taking US dollars. Just take Vietnamese Dong because there are plenty of ATMs throughout to withdraw more Dong.
No towell needed, they are provided throughout, even in the homestays, boat, etc.
Take plenty of suncream because you'll apply loads in the south, particularly during the cycling in the Mekong Delta.
I read up on the history, culture and wars before the trip which I thoroughly recommend. I find its much easier then during the trip to understand and comprehend the country and its sights and put everything into context.

After its troubled history, Viet Nam is now a thriving and dynamic country that is on the up. On arriving in Hanoi the culture shock will hit you with its vibrant, colourful and dynamic people. Viet Nam's life is very much on the streets which provides the lifeblood of the society. Just be prepared when trying to cross those roads........
