Our tours are designed for endurance cycling. You should be able to ride up to 4 consecutive days, up to at least 100kms / 60miles per day with hills (although this advice is generic). We can offer help and advice on what sort of climbing you should be doing for specific routes. If you are unsure of what you might be undertaking don’t hesitate to get in touch with us via our contact page where we will ask you a few questions to ascertain your ability to participate.
We will always have group splits when riding mountains. You may find that you will be happy to ride on your own on the climbs with your own thoughts, you may find a group that you are comfortable to ride in. You will never be on your own or left behind. Our ride leaders will make sure that whether you’re at the front or the back you will know where you are heading. The group always will regroup at the summit of the climb and vehicle back-up will be on hand if needed.
