The cycling holiday accommodated at carefully selected hotels: just enjoy your day in the Great Outdoors, in the knowledge that your accommodation is all arranged and that a welcoming room awaits at the other end.
Your luggage (which we also insure) is transferred for you every morning to your next hotel, and you can cycle as light as air and carefree. Maps and detailed directions will lead you to your destination (if you're self-guided); otherwise, if you're travelling in a group tour, simply follow your tour leader.
A bike by day for transport, a boat by night for meals and a good sleep. Your barge or river cruiser is your floating hotel and follows the cycling stages along the river or seashore. Fancy a lazy day in? – Well, there's your home from home.
Virtually all cabins are en-suite and provide a comfortable, restful base for the whole duration of your holiday.
All boats are fully crewed: a skipper at the helm, and catering staff to prepare breakfast, a slap-up dinner and all you need for your packed lunch.
Bike & Barge can be enjoyed either on a group tour accompanied by a tour leader, or self-guided.
Designed with the younger ones in mind: simple itineraries, shorter stages and following cycling tracks or the quietest roads. Bikes, trailers and accessories for hire, catering for kids of all ages. All luggage transfer is arranged and accommodation options include triple and quad rooms wherever possible, helping you to contain costs.
