The Slow Cyclist

Tailor-made cycling holidays in Transylvania and Rwanda

They are a UK-based cycle tour company that takes small groups of discerning travellers on incredible group and tailor-made cycling holidays in Transylvania and Rwanda, two corners of Europe & Africa they know like the back of their hand. They believe travel is worth taking time over; that a great holiday means getting under the skin of a place by delving into its cuisine, history, customs and getting to know its people. Whether you like pottering along dusty back-roads, across rich wildflower meadows or charging up soaring mountains, you'll get the most out of your time in, and out of the saddle.
