Flexibility and Financial Protection – Read More

Organising cycling adventures for 30 years

It’s your activity holiday and we want you to feel better for it.

We’d like you to relax, before you even arrive. We know you’ll enjoy the breath-taking scenery, sense of space or great array of historic offerings all the more if you have no worries about the smooth operation of your holiday. We understand that a successful, relaxing holiday starts with your peace of mind.

At our base under huge Suffolk skies, we’ve been listening and learning from our customers since Cycle Breaks was started by Andy Patton in 1991. Over the years, we have refined and developed our tours portfolio, adding cycling holidays programmes in Europe and, in England, walking tours around our favourite parts of Suffolk and Norfolk.

Freedom & Flexibility

With only a couple of exceptions, you can start your break in England on any day of the week and are welcome to add extra nights to the beginning or end of your stay, or along the way, if available. In Europe, some of our cycling holidays have more restricted start days, but we’re on hand to advise on what flexibility is available and will book extra nights at either end of your stay as required.

Great Accommodation

Admittedly, when it comes to putting your feet up, roaring log fires and cosy armchairs might be a priority for some. We can’t make any promises there, but – even in Europe – we do select the accommodation for all our tours according to our own criteria and clear standards.

Expert Local Knowledge

We’re enthusiastic cyclists and walkers ourselves, so we don’t underestimate the role of a comfortable, well-planned, meticulous itinerary through inspiring scenery. The pace of your break and the distances you cover are up to you, so you can be as active or relaxed as you wish, visit the sights you want to see and enjoy every minute of your holiday.

Baggage Transfer Service

Travel light on your walking or cycling holiday with just the bare essentials – camera, book, binoculars, picnic, etc. In the morning, we pick up your bags and ensure they are waiting for you by late afternoon at your next night’s stop.

Great Equipment Provided

For our cycling holidays we supply hybrid tourers – a comfortable bike, more rugged than a road bike, but lighter and faster than a mountain bike. They’ve got easy to use gears, flat or ‘quarter-rise’ handle bars and are available with a ladies’ or gents’ frame.

Active trips for all abilities

We grade our trips from 1-5, grades 1-3 are suitable for the moderately fit. If you are planning to take the longer route options, it is advisable to be reasonably fit. Find out more about our grades here

Well-Planned Touring Holidays for Everyone

At Cycle Breaks, our tours are tried and tested. With hand-picked accommodation partners and touring itineraries that we know work well, you’ll enjoy complete peace of mind. We offer superb cycle tours and walking breaks in England and continental Europe. What truly sets us apart, however, is our know-how so you can turn to us for expert information or assistance at any time.

We take care of everything from places to stay to good bikes, from moving your luggage along to your next hotel to preparing a personalised itinerary for your party. We value your peace of mind, so we’ve also ensured that your holiday payment is safe with us, through our secure online payment system and protection secured through our IPP insurance cover so that there is absolutely no risk to you in the event of our financial failure.

Explore all our cycling & walking trips, find the one that suits you the best

All our cycling and walking tours are graded as some routes offer more challenges than others. Most routes feature a range of detours and all our tour descriptions detail minimum and maximum mileages (some longer trips may offer rest days).

We are pleased to offer electric bikes as an option on most of our bike tours and also a range of single centre breaks – great for first timers or those who might just want to spend more time relaxing at the hotel than heading out and about.
