Galloway Cycling Holidays

Their mission is to provide the best cycling holidays in the known world. No second best.

Gentle Adventure Cycling Holidays in Dumfries and Galloway, the hidden gem in South West Scotland. They offer guided and self-guided tours.

If you have ever stood next to either of us at a party, you will already know we are nuts about bikes. If you share the love, let us show you the quiet roads of Scotland's hidden gem.

For more than 20 years now we have been doing increasingly ambitious things on bicycles. We started with short tours on unsuitable bikes and dressed like tramps. We made every possible mistake, but still had fun.

Now, we have a shed full of bikes from the exotic to the practical and have done well over 100,000 miles. We have ridden short and appallingly fast sportives, numbingly long endurance events and  a 4 year trip twice around the world on loaded touring bikes.

It's now time to pass on the passion. We love the place where we live, its people, landscape and wildlife and we know where to get the best coffee and cake and which way the wind blows.
