Holiday Type / Top five cycling holidays

If you have been inspired by the Tour de France, are a keen cyclist or just enjoy an occasional bike ride, we have created a collection of top five cycling experiences.

Keen cyclists can spend Sunday and Tuesday evenings working out on the Yas Marina Formula 1® track in Abu Dhabi - participants of all fitness levels and speeds are welcome, and best of all it's free. At BodyHoliday, St Lucia, adventure excursions include extreme on and off road mountain biking along the beautiful north-eastern coastline; a Tree House Spin Studio towering 25 feet above the ground has also been introduced. In Morocco, exploring the Atlas Mountains on a guided mountain bike ride at Kasbah Tamadot provides a thrilling opportunity for magnificent views.

Experience one of the last pristine mountain cultures on earth at this retreat set in pine-clad slopes at Uma by COMO, Bhutan. Take a day ride and discover local monasteries and markets by mountain bike on the Dochhu Trail or enjoy the thrill of a 35km freewheel downhill from Bhutan's highest road pass on the Chele La Freewheel. Jumeirah Port Soller, Spain is also a prime year-round destination for cyclists, whether you are part of a professional team in training, or simply want to enjoy the varied and safe roads on the island, many crossing through the Tramuntana Mountains.
