Cycle Puglia offer a great choice of holidays and packages, both self-led and guided, moving-on and fixed base. All our holidays are very popular with both couples and groups and we have lots of experience and knowledge of the region as we have been running cycle tours for 5 years in Puglia. On our fixed-basde tours we can tailor the daily rides to meet your abilities in terms of fitness and distance.
We are different because:
- we offer a great choice of self-led & guided moving-on & fixed-base cycle tours
- our fixed-base tour is our best-selling 7 night/8 day Tour of Salento, which can be both self-led (our cheapest option), or guided, or a mixture. These tour is completely flexible in terms of daily ride distances - we tailor the rides and routes to suit you.
- Fixed-base offers you quality, poolside accomodation and options to self-cater when you want but without comprising on a great choice of daily rides exploring hidden Salento. Perfect if you want a more leisurely holiday and want to get to really know and explore hidden Salento.
- on our fixed-base tours you are based in really smart, spacious, poolside apartments in the quiet resort of Santa Maria al Bagno on the the Ionian coast, a perfect base for exploring the region of Salento and beyond. Each self-catering apartment sleeps 2-6 and includes washing machine and wi-fi, TV, poolside BBQ, beautiful grounds, own terrace, sheets and towels and glorious sea views. 5 apartments are available. Perfect for couples, groups and families! Highly recommended.
- we meet and drop off all our clients at Brindisi or Bari airport so you get a hassle-free start to your tour. No more getting lost at the start of your holiday in an unfamiliar place.
- we care - we don't just drop you off at a start point with a bike and a route card and a map. We ensure all clients get their bikes properly set up and then we give you a familiarisation ride and briefing at the start of our all tours.
- our new quality bikes are equipped with pannier(s) and bar bag - in a choice of various sizes from XS, S; M, L, XL to suit all heights and M/F sizes, properly set up for you at the start of your cycling tour
Our tours are perfect for groups, families and couples.
