The Slow Cyclist

Cycling, Walking & Service

They take guests to parts of Europe & Africa that they’re passionate about, where they have the knowledge and the finest contacts to create holidays and journeys that live long in the memory. They don’t offer many destinations because they’re a small team and like to immerse themselves, often spending months, sometimes years in-country putting together the perfect trips. It’s what their guests expect and they take great pride in their ability to deliver for you.

If there is one thing we’re obsessed about, it’s sending our guests home raving about their time with us. Our small but growing team spend their days crafting the very best cycling and walking journeys, making sure our guests are on the receiving end of impeccable service before, during and after their journey with us. There are always a few of us out on the road, joining our local guides to lead journeys ourselves or scouting new and exciting places we think you will love. We’ve grown a little since our founder, Oli, hosted his first group of cyclists in Transylvania in 2015, but our ethos has changed very little. We offer exceptional slow travel experiences that surprise and delight in equal measure.
