Inntravel says

We offer a range of self-guided cycling short breaks, all of them “easy pedaling” to suit most levels of fitness and experience.

Wherever you go, your luggage will be waiting for you in your hotel each evening – and we also provide you with top quality touring bikes, route maps and notes.

Each of these four-night breaks includes accommodation in characterful hotels en route, with a hearty breakfast and superb dinner (on all or most nights) included in the price.

In Spain, you can choose from unspoiled central Mallorca or the Catalan coast, one of our most popular destinations.

Head to France where we offer short cycling breaks in the Loire Valley, with its fairytale castles, or the gastronomic Rhone Valley in the south.

Seaside hotels and thatched villages await in Denmark whilst Amsterdam and the beautiful eastern seaboard are highlights of our Taste of Holland short break.
