We’ve got so many dazzling destinations that our super cycling choices can seem endless. We get it. So, we’ve put our heads together at Jet2holidays to help you decide where to go on a biking break.
Don’t forget, you can also pre-book 32kg bike carriage with us, and groups of ten or more get their own travel advisor to make all the planning and arrangements a doddle. Plus, did you know we also offer free name changes? Just another way we make your life easier, to allow for more time for training and prepping.
Want the lowdown on where to book a cycling holiday? Here you are…
In Puerto Pollensa, be sure to make a lunchtime pit stop at Tolo’s, where paella and grilled meat and seafood are the dishes of every day. Think excellent views only made better by the fact it’s a popular haunt for likeminded cyclists, and the staff may even recommend some routes. There’s also bike storage right outside and memorabilia from stars! If you’ve hit the north before, head for the sensational climbs and descents in the south of Majorca instead. That’s where the mighty Tramuntana Mountains will be your twisting, turning playground.
Costa Brava and Girona
Here you have the home of a number of professional cyclists, which has included Mark Cavendish. So hit the city to follow the wheels of your sporting heroes. But if you’re breaking away to other parts of the Costa Brava, let the rugged routes be your oyster!
We can’t recommend ‘Tapas Alley’ in Benidorm enough. Not only can you uncover another side of the buzzy resort while you’re in the Costa Blanca, it’s the ultimate place to carb-up in style after a long day of cycling. Croquettes and pan con tomate are obvious filling favourites, but honey-glazed chorizo, garlicky prawns and salty Padrón peppers are all part and parcel. Yum!
Head a couple of kilometres inland and you’ll feel a world away from the traditional pulls of the Costa Dorada. Check out vast olive groves and dinky villages, where you can brush up on your Spanish when you’re off the saddle and having a bite to eat.
Mount Teide is the longest continuous climb in Europe, ranging from Tenerife’s sunny coast to what’s often a snow-capped mountaintop. You’ll tend to see professionals doing altitude training all year round too – just another way you know it’s a winning island for cyclists!
Quiet roads, sweeping sand dunes, lush landscapes and beaches to rival the Caribbean? Welcome to Fuerteventura! The diversity of the routes makes it a haven for beginners and professionals alike, so it’s one to consider if you’re after a destination to suit a group or even your family.
Riding through volcanic landscape sound like a fun way to spend your next holiday? Make it Lanzarote. There’s one trail that cuts through the otherworldly Timanfaya National Park, where you can build epic speed among the staggering scenery!
The ascent of Santa Lucía de Tirajana in Gran Canaria is one of the greatest climbing challenges on the island. As you cycle around, you’ll be treated to incredible Atlantic Ocean views. You’ll want to time your water break around photo opps of the historical buildings.
Stunning backdrops, undulating climbs, historical tracks… Cyprus is the perfect place to get out on the bike, and there’s something for everyone. Winter training camps are also available due to the year-round climate. Like it leisurely? Limassol Marina is fab for hiring some wheels and pedalling along the pavements.
