I’m not a PRO cyclist. Can I join?2018-04-16T19:41:05+00:00

Our cycling tours are suitable both for those who cycle regularly and those who take a cycling trip occasionally. We use electric bikes on our tours to turn even the most difficult trips into an enjoyable journey for those with less stamina or technical skills. Plus, we adjust every tour to your skills and abilities.

Kids are also welcome, as long as they can cycle independently and can ride for at least 20 kilometers. Please notify us about any children joining when you book a tour. That way we can adjust the difficulty of the tour to them.

What about the bad weather?2018-04-16T19:37:09+00:00

Unfortunately, the weather is not up to us, so even the good plans might be ruined due to bad weather. We’ll make sure the tours happen even in less ideal weather, but we need to put your safety first. In case your tour gets cancelled due to bad weather, we’ll fully reimburse you.

What should I wear?2018-04-16T19:37:53+00:00
