Reasons We're Proud of What We Do

We don’t take shortcuts and dedicated months of solid work in planning a new tour every one to two years. We always fill them because our customers return!

Tour Consistency. All our tours are multi-day, point to point ‘epics’ loosely catergorised as either “Avid” or “Active”. That makes it easy for you to find a tour that suits your style. It also means that when we launch a new tour you will know it will be a fit. Find out if you are an Avid or Active rider.

Tour Design. We are avid cyclists and know what cyclists want from their journey. We invest a huge amount of time and resources into exploring and designing new experiences. We focus ruthlessly on stunning routes and quiet roads where each day finishes in a location that will enthral and raise your cultural curiosity. Our tour planning starts with desk research, then draft mapping, then driving then riding. With adjustments made as we move through the process.

As well as enjoying fantastic routes on quiet roads with great scenery our customers like to unwind in the evenings. For some this is getting out and about and experiencing the local culture and cuisine. For others, it's a quiet evening in the bar of a comfortable hotel. We design our tours so that stop-overs are as compelling as you choose them to be!

Support with Independence. If you want support when you need it, but still a sense of freedom and independence on the road, then we are for you! On a Wild Atlantic Cycle Tour you ride how you wish. At your pace. You never need to feel ‘too slow’ or ‘too fast’.

Smooth Logistics. We invest a huge amount of time into planning the detail. Arrival days. Departure days. Pre-trip communications. Bike preparation. Bike box storage. Route information. We do the back work, so you can focus on your training, knowing that everything is seamlessly taken care of

Personable. We are always ready to take a call and have a friendly chat. Queries and questions are welcome! And if you just want to talk to get an impression of us, then pick up the phone!

Accommodation and Value. By far the biggest cost of a cycling journey is somewhere to lay your head at night (oh and a scrumptious breakfast!). We use accommodation that we know and have stayed in ourselves. Our hotels are of good quality with bars and restaurants. Some even have health suites, spa and pools! We believe our prices present great value for what you get.

Leadership Style. We have a small team of tour leaders and support crew. The necessary practical skills are always there. However, we believe in ‘unforgettable cycling experiences’, not simply ‘great cycle tours’. A large part of this is down to leadership style. At least that’s what our customers tell us time and again! That means humour, fun, attentiveness and the ability to bring a sense of joy and lightness – even when it’s raining or cold!

Rewarding loyalty. We are certain you will want to come back and we want you to! You will enjoy a significant discount if and when you do.
