I am nervous or inexperienced cycling with traffic. How much of the trip will involve road cycling?
We always plan our cycling holidays to avoid traffic where possible and cycle on traffic-free or quiet routes. Destinations vary and some trips encounter more traffic at times than others, particularly when passing through urban areas, but the Tour Leader can always assist and advise and usually keeps the group closer together if relevant. Our detailed trip notes describe the cycling summary and day to day details - mentioning vehicles if relevant. Some people prefer to seek out entire routes on cycle paths to avoid traffic altogether. In countries where cycling is a popular sport and hobby, such as France, Spain or Italy, we find that the local drivers and pedestrians are very considerate and respectful towards cyclists.
