Cycling ConditionsRoute is mainly on quiet roads with a good mix of flat riding and rolling terrain.
We have two circular rides on this trip so if you did feel like missing a day in the saddle it is possible to take the day off and enjoy the lovely towns we will be staying in. If you are struggling during a ride and wish to return to the hotel the leader will be able to call for support to pick you up, this is most likely to be a taxi from the hotel and there maybe a charge for this.
Please see the introductory pages of the Cycling Brochure for more important information on classification and grading. If you have any queries about the difficulty of the trip please do not hesitate to call us.
Normal group size and age
Normally 6 to 16, plus leader. Minimum age 16.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
Most people who enjoy a weekend riding on either trails or roads at home will enjoy a B-grade trip. You need to be in good health and reasonably fit. Ideal for occasional cyclists, or as a more relaxed trip for fitter riders. B-grade off-road trips require no previous experience. Distances on road trips rarely exceed 70 kms (43 miles) per day.
Exodus is always looking to improve our current itineraries and to offer something different. With many new trips this year, there is something unique and different to try every year.
Cycling: Our cycling holidays come in all shapes and sizes; from gentle self-guided trips in the Veneto, to tackling the High Atlas in Morocco, or exploring the length of Vietnam.
Culture: Let Exodus show you a different side to many of the world's greatest cultural attractions.
