The lure of cycling in almost guaranteed sunshine under blue skies and set against a sparkling coastline is almost impossible to resist. Combine those things with stunning mountain scenery, fantastic fresh food and roads shared with drivers who respect cyclists and its little wonder that our tours around the coastal regions and islands of Mediterranean Europe remain amongst our most popular.
It's no surprise that many of these destinations, such as Tuscany and the Cote d'Azur have been adopted by the world's professional cycling community as popular and widely revered training grounds. Watching the pro-teams whizz past on a training ride as you're tucking in to a post-ride Salad Nicoise, only adds to the thrill of riding in these beautiful locations.
With a variety of grades to choose from, depending on the level of challenge you're looking for, in destinations such Sardinia, Tuscany, Corsica, the South of France and Southern Spain.
