Where it all began, South Africa is the cycling destination that inspired Bicycle Beyond. A spectacular country with unforgettable roads, beautiful scenery, and more than a handful of challenging climbs, South Africa is the perfect place for a cycling holiday, which is why we, and many of our long-standing guests, return here year after year.
Known as Africa’s Mountain Kingdom, Lesotho is one of the most challenging road cycling destinations in Africa, if not the world, but it has yet to be uncovered by international cycling fans. With soaring mountain passes and gradients reaching an eye-watering 30%, Lesotho cycling holidays are not for the fainthearted, but if you love to climb and dream of cycling roads that few have cycled before you, this could be the perfect destination for your next cycling break.
Cycling holidays in Chile are becoming increasingly popular, and with endless Rainforests, Mountains, Fjords, Wine Lands, National Parks, the Atacama Desert, and of course, the famous Carretera Austral to cycle, there really is something for everyone in South America’s most beautiful gem. While mountain biking still reigns in Chile, the road networks are improving by the day, and if you dream of road cycling Patagonia, Bicycle Beyond has just the tour for you!
Cycling in New Zealand is a dream for many two-wheel fans, and with fabulous scenery, pristine roads, and two great islands to choose from, it is the perfect cycling destination for independent travellers. As New Zealand is geared up for cyclists, it is easy to rent bikes and bike racks for your rental car, and you can even pick them up on one island and drop them off on the other! There are some great sportives in NZ too, with the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge being a firm customer favourite.
The land of Alpine Adventures, Austria is the perfect destination for a European cycling holiday. With magnificent scenery, pristine roads, inspiring mountain passes, and some of the best bakeries in Europe, it is a dream for cyclists who have perhaps already tackled the mighty mountains of Italy and France, and who are looking for a challenging cycling experience.
As the home of GIANT and MERIDA, Taiwan is the ultimate cycling holiday destination for road cycling fans. Cycling is big here, in fact, there is an official 968km (602 mile) bicycle route, the Taiwan Cycle Route No.1, that will take you around the entire island on cycle paths, quiet country roads, and busier roads with dedicated cycle lanes, and so it is perfect for self-guided trips.
Home of the Pizza, Prosecco, and Giro D’Italia, Italy is the perfect cycling destination for two-wheel fans who adore great food, great wine, and of course, great cycling! There are plenty of cycling challenges in Italy for those who want to push themselves to the max, and some magnificent scenic rides for those who prefer to take things a little bit easier.
Peru is South America’s adventure capital. A land of magical landscapes, sacred valleys, colonial cities, and magnificent mountain ranges, it really does have something to offer every intrepid traveller, and while the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu remains Peru’s number #1 attraction, mountain biking holidays in Peru are growing in popularity. From single day trips to multi-day adventures, there are endless cycling opportunities to be had in Peru, and we’ve selected a few of the best for you to Bicycle beyond…
With year-round sunshine, spectacular landscapes, and more than a few mountain passes to challenge those who are looking for a demanding cycling holiday, Gran Canaria is the perfect destination for your next two-wheeled break.
Easily accessible, you can fly to Las Palmas Airport from almost every hub in Europe, and as the island is still relatively new on the international cycling circuit, it is the ideal location for those who are looking to escape the crowds and indulge in some pristine cycling along routes with little traffic and very few other cyclists.
Some places in the world were just made for cycling, and Granada in the Andalusian region of Spain is one of them. Fondly referred to as the ‘Land of a Thousand Castles’ this picturesque city is rich in history, Islamic architecture, old-school tapas bars, and more than a few challenging cycling routes where you can follow in the footsteps of your favourite Vuelta España pros and tackle the mighty Pico de Veleta – one of Europe’s greatest cycling challenges.
After hearing stories about BicycleBeyond from their respective parents who have travelled with us many times before, Jonas and Karin-Ylva from Oslo decided to join our iconic Garden Route Cycle Tour in March 2020.
A 750km cycling extravaganza, this demanding tour is not for the faint-hearted, but this sporty duo were more than up for the challenge, which they shared with Ingo, John, Brian, and 10 guests from the UK, Germany, and Norway.
Their trip culminated with the Cape Town Cycle Tour 2020, and an after-party to remember!
Here’s What Jonas and Karin-Ylva had to say about us:
We had a lovely vacation in South Africa, following the Garden Route from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town. All thanks to BicycleBeyond!
We ended each day at the most wonderful hotels, and had a great time with the rest of the group. Everything was very well organized!
Participating in one of the world’s biggest cycle-races, the Cape Argus Cycle Tour, was a perfect ending to one of the best vacations we have ever had.
Thank you so much for great guiding and hosting along the Garden Route. We would recommend this to all of our friends and family, and would love to come back one day. We fell in love with South-Africa!
