cycling tour
Tour Length: 10 days, 10 nights

The Lands End to John O’Groats cycle tour or 'LEJOG' conjures up a variety of images; an escapade; a challenge; hard work; a puncture or two; stunning scenery, and a tremendous sense of achievement.

Channel to the Med

cycling tour
Tour Length: 14 days, 14 nights
Grade: Hard

Welcome to Peak Tours newest cycle challenge from one end of France to the other. Starting from the northern French coast at the port town of Caen we continue southwards to finish the tour near Nice on the Mediterranean coastline two weeks later.

So, Why France? France is a wide and diverse country which contains a variety of different and stunning landscapes. France is also 1/4 as densely populated as the UK and much more rural so the roads are quieter and cyclists are treated with much more respect.

Most people have heard of the Tour de France and the country can arguably be considered the cultural home of cycling. We will cycle through some of the iconic landscapes that you may have seen whilst watching the tour and most notably we will take in Mont Ventoux en-route to Nice.

Way of the Roses

cycling tour
Tour Length: 4 days, 4 nights
Grade: Hard

Starting from Morecambe on the west coast this challenging ride passes through stunning scenery along the 170 mile route to the east coast at Bridlington. Opened in September 2010 the Sustrans Way of the Roses tour is well signposted and has train stations at either end making travel to & from the start and end points easy.

Dover to Cape Wrath

cycling tour
Tour Length: 15 days, 15 nights
Grade: Hard

Whilst most people have heard of the Lands End to John o’Groats route not many have heard of the Dover to Cape Wrath route. The LEJOG as it is often called starts at the most south westerly point of mainland UK finishes at the most north easterly point, but what about the opposite two corners? Welcome to the Dover to Cape Wrath tour

Moselle to Mozart Cycling Holiday

cycling tour
Tour Length: 14 days, 14 nights
Grade: Moderate

Welcome to the Moselle to Mozart tour, a taste of some of the best cycling Germany and Austria has to offer. After arrival in Frankfurt we begin our tour just north of Trier near to the border with Luxembourg. From here we follow the Moselle River to The historic city of Koblenz where we meet the mighty Rhine.

We follow the ‘Romantic Rhine’ south to Heidelberg and the River Neckar where we head into the hills and cycle across to Rothenberg through the forested Jagst Valley and a number of quiet farming villages where time seems to stand still.

We will continue through the picturesque Altmuhl region to Regensberg where we meet with the Danube and follow the river into Austria along some of Europe’s best cycle trails. We will pass through many attractive Austrian towns and villages as we continue along the Danube to impressive Vienna where we will finish our tour.

The tour will run in the same way as any Peak Tours guided adventure with the magic back up van providing refreshments, most of the lunches provided, bags transferred, quality accommodation and not forgetting our relaxed and jovial guides.

This tour is suitable for hybrid bikes and also road bikes as we have found many superb routes away from the river when the surface is rough.

If you don't want the hassle of taking your bike on the plane with you then you can drop it off with us or post it to us and we will take it over for you. Likewise at the end of the tour we will bring your bike back to the UK for you.

This tour averages 60 miles a day and generally the route is flatter which allows a more relaxed pace and also more time to explore the area as you cycle through.

What our customers say

Niv, Johnny and James worked so hard to make the trip run smoothly and they were great guides and companions! I had such a good time. Brilliant!

Fran McLean, June 2014

Guides were beyond excellent. Brew van was totally awesome – that red van made the Tour for me! Overall, excellent plus.

Ian Hope, June 2014

Steve, you’ve got it just right, mate – don’t change a thing. We wish it could have lasted forever (except for the sore backsides and tired legs)!

Peter & Karen Teague (Australia), June 2014

The accommodations were perfect and interestingly varied and gave me a well - rounded sense of what Britain is all about. Everything worked like clockwork. Thanks for doing such a great job. I will definitely choose Peak Tours on my next cycling adventure.
