Your bike says a lot about you. It says much about the type of riding you enjoy and therefore the type of roads that you ride and the destinations that will give you the best holiday. We have therefore split the type of bikes into 8 different categories (yes we know there are arguably many  niches within this), and we have matched the type of bike to what we think is the best destination to suit it's rider:

1. Time Trial or Triathlon Bike

P3_red_R8050-1

This bike likes to go fast in straight lines, and is built for all out speed. This type of bike, longs to be ridden in Lanzarote. The straight roads, minimal hills and year round sunshine, and proximity to great swimming waters, make this a great destination for a Time Trial or Triathlon Bike

2. Lightweight Road bike

R3_flouro_R8050-1

This bike has shallow section rims and every component on it is designed to climb. It's fast, feather weight and  due to it's compact chainset and is most at home in the high mountains. If you have this bike, head to the Pyrenees or Annecy to take on the big mountains.

3. Aero Road bike

S5 TeamEdition_Angle 1

This bike has deep section rims and standard gearing. It's designed to be fast everywhere and is the weapon of choice for many a club rider. Head to the middle mountians of Nice or Costa Dorada

4. Hybrid Bike

With it's flat handlebars, wider tyres and more relaxed outlook on life, choose from one of our leisure trips. We especially like Puglia

5. Gravel or CX bike

129869-512994_1_Supersize

With it's narrow knobbly tyres, these bikes are most at home on gravel tracks or canal tow paths. Head out to explore the Sierra Nevada national park.  

6. Commuter bike

98609-351368_1_Supersize

This bike is used day in and day out to go to and from your place of work. It's probably locked up outside and not very well looked after. Give the bike a weekend break and go to Mallorca, either treat it to some sun and TLC, or leave it behind and hire one of our fabulous hire bikes.

7. Touring Bike

trek-920-disc-2018-touring-bike-cream-EV317013-3400-1

Distinguishable by the panniers on the front and rear of the bike. Take this laden mule on one of our Coast to Coast trips.

8. Mountain Bike

95341-335967_1_Supersize

Big knobbly tyres and suspension makle this bike suitable for off-road use. Head to Chamonix to get some chair lift assisted ups and some amazing Alpine descents.
