If you are an avid cyclist and have watched people cycling in Europe with envy then knowing that you can participate in such an event should come as a welcome surprise to you. Far and away from the normal guided tours that you could take of France or Italy, bike tours allow you to see the countryside and experience the country in a way that nothing else can.
You can bring your own bike on your bike tours of the French or Italian country side or we will provide bicycles for you that are designed to make the trip you are joining us for. You don’t have to be an expert cyclist to enjoy these bike tours either, whether you are a cycling enthusiast or a competition level cyclist you will can find a group that fits your fitness level and experience.
Groups are kept small to ensure that you get the level of attention you need and there are professionals with you at all times as well as support vehicles should your bicycle break down during your tour. Trips vary in length depending on the tour but you can adjust your trip to meet your expectations and fitness level.
Take your Non Riding Spouse on Your Bike Tours With You
If you are planning a vacation with your spouse there is no reason why you should not be able to take your bike tours, a non-riding spouse can take a tour of the same country side you will take, eat lunch with you then head to the hotel where they can be pampered until you meet up with them. For spouses that might consider following along as being a boring way to spend vacation keep in mind that you will get to see a side of the European countryside that you might not get to see otherwise, and the hotels you will stop in during your trip with a be great place to stay while you do a bit of shopping and sightseeing while you wait.
This makes this the ideal vacation to take with your spouse, and you can even plan the rest of your vacation around your cycling trip to make sure you all get the most out of your trip to Europe. Bike tours include everything you will need once you get off the plane; you will get picked up at the airport, and will have deluxe hotel accommodations before, during and after your ride. Meals are included, and tour leaders are bilingual if you need help communicating while in Europe.
Mechanics and transportation are provided while on the ground and high end bike rentals are available for those that need them. At Breaking Away we strive to provide a truly unique vacation alternative for those that want to see the countryside from their bikes. Our company directors accompany each tour to ensure that you get the possible experience from your bike tours, and support staff will make sure that your bike tour is a memorable event in every way.
If you are an avid cyclist then your ideal vacation may be one perched on top of your favorite bicycle in a country side far away from home.
