UK cycle tours

Our verdict:

A cycling holiday is a great way to explore a destination, whether you’re a Tour de France enthusiast or seeking something more sedate on two wheels. Saddle Skedaddle’s UK and overseas tours range from relaxed country routes and short introductory breaks to rugged mountain biking, with room shares for those riding solo.

Saddle Skedaddle says

We specialise in UK and overseas cycling holidays, with more than 15 years’ experience behind us.

  • expert-guided groups
  • popular with solos
  • room share option

We offer a wide range of fully guided weekends, short breaks and longer cycling holidays in the UK. Each one is graded according to the level of effort required, with a range of itineraries that are suitable for all ages and levels of ability. You can choose from easy leisure cycling, road cycling or mountain bike options.

All our guided holidays attract a significant number of solo travellers. It’s such a great way to enjoy the great outdoors amongst a small group of fellow cycling enthusiasts along with a friendly and knowledgeable guide. There’s a free same sex twin-share scheme or you can opt to pay a single supplement (which we do our best to keep to a minimum).

If you’re new to cycling and want to try it out or are already an avid cyclist, our two-night classic road weekends in such UK hotspots as the Lake District, Northumberland, the Chilterns and Wales are a great introduction. For a longer holiday, check out these great UK departures.

Accommodation on all our cycling holidays is in small hotels and B&Bs, each packed with character and charm and serving a hearty breakfast. Dinner and a buffet lunch are also included in some tours.

You can bring your own bike or you can hire our top-of-the-range bikes and helmets.
