Bike Holidays (Without The Actual Riding)
There is such a thing as a bike holiday that doesn’t involve you riding on the bike… Instead, it involves you watching everyone else doing the hard yards! Non-cycling or spectator bike holidays are on many a bucket list and they involve following part or all of the itinerary of a major cycling event, such as the Tour de France, the Giro d’Italia, the Vuelta a Espana etc.
These events pack a punch – there is such an infectious buzz day and night during a major cycling event that even if you’re not actually a cycling aficionado, you can’t help but get caught up in the excitement. There is usually a good degree of flexibility with these bike tours as operators realise you will probably want to soak up other elements along the way, such as the area’s natural beauty, villages and cities of interest, regional food and refreshments.
Depending on the price of the non-cycling bike tour, your package will probably include features such as follow up cars, VIP access to the best viewing points and possibly even helicopter rides.
