Cycling Information
On this tour we cycle 252 km over six days (an average of 42 km per day) with further optional rides available. Two of the cycling days are circular routes and therefore optional. We use quiet, undulating roads although there will be several steeper sections. Maps are provided to cycle individually or in groups while the tour leader drives the support vehicle, except on circular routes when the tour leader will cycle with the group. We have graded the route as moderate.
