Cycle England Holiday Grading

* ~ Easy

If you are looking to cycle 15-30kms per day, then this is the holiday for you. These holidays are generally flat with some gentle hills. Cycling experience is necessary but these holidays are very leisurely and will give you plenty of time to stop off and explore attractions along the way.

** ~ Gentle

For those looking for a relaxed cycling break with distances no more than 20-45kms per day. Holidays on these routes are usually mainly on the flat with the occasional hill. Cycling experience is necessary but generally these holidays will be comfortable and give time to stop off, discover the local sites and make it to your end location at an easy pace.

*** ~ Moderate

For moderate holidays, the daily distances are a bit further between 30-60kms per day. These are for the leisure cyclist that has a good level of physical fitness and who can cope with the occasional challenging steep hill. Remember that you can do each route at your own pace and the additional option of electric bikes can make a huge difference and make these routes much easier.

**** ~ Sporty

Sporty holidays are for those who cycle frequently. Typically, these will be longer days in the saddle between 50-80kms per day. You are likely to experience some steep hills on the route and so it is recommended that these holidays are for those who cycle often at home and have a good level of fitness. However, hiring an electric bike to do these holidays can make the route much easier, and is recommended if you are not confident doing hill climbs.

***** ~ Challenging

These holidays are ideal for the keen cyclist that cycles regularly, has a good level of fitness and experience of long daily distances and hard climbs. Typically, these holidays will be 70+kms per day.  For those that want to cycle further and love a personal challenge.
