Iron Donkey Bicycle Touring

Guided, unguided & independent cycling tours with the flexibility to suit your needs.

At the Iron Donkey they believe that the bicycle is a great way – in many instances the best way – to explore your environment while on vacation. Bicycle touring is particularly liberating, and apart from walking, you can’t get any closer to your surroundings. On a bike you can stop and get off whenever and as often as you like - with no worries about parking. Bicycle touring is better for your health and better for the environment.

The idea of a bicycle tour will conjure up different images to different people. There are those to whom a gentle 20 miles on level terrain with lots of en route stops is the ideal day. For others a 40 mile ride with a little bit of challenge here and there is more what they are after. And then there are the hammerheads who want to ride 60 or 70 miles a day with a couple of mountain passes thrown in for good measure!

We can offer you a bike tour whatever your level of biking experience, expertise and ambition. Our ability to offer this degree of flexibility is rooted in our comprehensive knowledge of the regions in which we run our tours. We can advise you on the itinerary that exactly meets your requirements with regard to terrain, riding distance, duration, challenge, sights of interest, accommodations etc. It is also possible to devise an itinerary that caters for both leisure and hardcore riders in the same trip.
