Since the 90's mountain bicycle holidays and bicycle tourism has been booming. In Germany alone, 30 million people take their bicycles on holiday. Hardly any other form of travel offers the same feeling of freedom, it is slow enough to take in smells, colours and wind with all our senses, and fast enough to cover long distances on our own and be far away from civilisation.
Cycling today is independent of age, status and geography. The offers range from road cycling holidays for over 55 year-olds in Italy to cycling tours through the Himalayas to easy eBike tours along rivers, from cycling tours in the suburbs to barren bike rides in the desert to luxury bike resorts.
The cycling world has become huge and small at the same time. And that's good. What connects us, are the experiences and stories - and it is the unpredictable experiences we have, despite meticulous preparation, that remain embedded in our minds for a long time. Time and again we seek the experience of gliding through nature, the adventure, enhanced by the perfect combination of culture, scenery, food and activity.
On Bike Holidays, we want to give you an understanding of the global cycling world, from simple to extraordinary routes, and highlight breathtaking and beautiful landscapes from near and far.
No matter what you call it, whether mountain bicycle holidays, cycling tours or cycling experience: Cycling is always an exciting and relaxing way of spending your holidays. Often, all you need is a cycling weekend to change your life completely, some choose to cycle around the world, but all return, enriched by new experience, to everyday life.
