Cycling Holidays Specialist

The Chain Gang has been organising cycling holidays in France, Italy and the UK since 1997. We offer both self guided and guided cycling holidays. You can choose an itinerary that suits your level of fitness and cycling experience. You can use our experienced guides to take you on roads through the most beautiful parts of Europe. With our close relationships with partner hotels and restaurants cyclists on our tours are greeted as guests rather than strangers, even on our self-guided trips. At each and every destination, you will experience local cuisine, culture and the most welcoming hospitality. With the Chain Gang, you will find adventure, make new friends and travel on quiet, safe roads.

We run our road cycling holidays from May to October each year. Guided tours departing every week, and we can support your self-guided tour whenever you like. Individual and family cycling holidays can be confirmed through our website or over the phone. read more


Cycle Tours in France

In my opinion, France is the best place to cycle in the world, and that’s the end of it. A wonderful combination of rich history and culture, fantastic food, beautiful scenery, wonderful wines, and drivers who always give way to us cyclists, makes it an outstanding choice for a cycling holiday.  France has everything you could possibly desire and whichever of our packages you decide to book, you are guaranteed an unforgettable experience. Enjoy routes that make their way through the beautiful French countryside or tours that include excursions in the centre of Paris, or perhaps visits to some of the best Bordeaux vineyards; the choice is yours.


Cycle Tours in Italy

Tuscany and Umbria are equally beautiful destinations. Both boast astonishing Renaissance, Roman and Etruscan history, to say nothing of food that some say is even better than what you will find in France, and wines that are as good as anything produced by the proud Gallic neighbours to the North. If you fancy a holiday that offers history, culture and beautiful cycle routes in equal measure, Italy is an excellent choice.


Cycle Tours in the UK

Whilst I really enjoy exploring Continental cities and countryside, you can have a fantastic cycling holiday right here in the United Kingdom. The highlights of our Devon tours feature rolling green fields, quiet country lanes, beautiful coastline, wild ponies and moorland, to name just a few. You will also have the chance to try delicious local dishes made from the freshest of ingredients as well as some of the best beers in the world, served in fabulous British pubs. We’ll provide the bike and plan the routes; you just turn up and have a good time!
