For when you want to get away from everything except the bike, Retreats are luxurious breaks where the emphasis is as much on unwinding and enjoying stunning surroundings as it is on challenging yourself on two wheels.

Based at one exclusive hotel, and with the best home-cooked regional specialities, local wines and culture to enjoy, these departures offer the ultimate in relaxation. You won’t need to do any specific training before a Retreat: you can tailor-make the riding itinerary to suit you, choosing 150km over the high mountains or a gentle ‘coffee spin’ before an afternoon of relaxation - guided or solo, it’s up to you.

Non-riding partners are welcomed along to share the experience with you too and the trips are held in locales with plenty of non-cycling offerings to discover for when you don’t fancy riding.

As with all the members of staff that I encountered on the trip itself, each and every one of them are a credit to your company.

The on-bike food and support car were very well thought out - they made a huge difference. The homemade flapjacks were especially tasty.

Am I strong enough for the trip?

Retreats are among the most relaxing trips we organise. Guests have access to riding across a range of difficulties - supported by Rapha Travel guides and mechanics every step of the way.

Can I bring a non-riding companion?

We welcome non-riding partners on our Retreats. We ensure that Retreats happen in regions where there are many activities to be enjoyed off the bike.
