Cycling Information
On this tour we cycle 290 km over six days (an average of 48 km per day). Three of the cycling days are circular routes and therefore optional. We travel mainly on quiet country roads, on flat or rolling terrain with occasional ascents. Day 5 is in rolling hills and has short but steep inclines. Maps are provided to cycle individually or in groups while the tour leader drives the support vehicle, except on circular routes (days 2, 5 and 7) when the tour leader will cycle with the group. We have graded the route as easy to moderate.
