Retreats

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.

FAQ

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.

Can I rent a bike?

We have a fleet of top-specification bikes available for hire on our European departures. We ask that guests requiring a bike tell us as far as is possible in advance, so we can guarantee the right size is available, and also to send us your fit measurements, so our mechanics can set up the bike for you ready for the start of your trip. If you’re renting a bike you need to remember to bring your helmet and pedals.
