Active Body Peaceful Mind

Cycling Tours  offer the opportunity to truly discover your dream destination.  We bike on small roads where few cars pass, and most of all we bike in cyclist-friendly destinations: France, Italy, Spain, Ireland…  Stop and take a picture.  Stop and smell the lavender.  If you’ve never been on a cycling tour, call us and we’ll explain everything.  If you’ve been on Cycling Tours with other companies, a quick glance at our tours will be enough to convince you: we offer the smallest group sizes, the best hotels and restaurants, and the utmost in service and flexibility.

For Everyone

Don’t bike much?  You do and she doesn’t?  Or vice-versa? We know what it’s like to cope with different abilities, and interest.  We take full advantage of e-bikes; which means those who are less into biking can fly up those hills and wait for the rest to come sweating up.  We keep everyone happy, because that’s what a vacation is about.  Mostly, we design tours so that you can discover a region being outside and active, so that you can bike and chat and be together.  Join a tour with a few select people — our group sizes are so small you’ll know everyone by the first day — or ask us to design a Private tour with just friends or family.

Our support vehicle is always close-by, complete with towels, refreshments, and snacks.

We tailor the equipement to your needs.  Request, and we will make it happen.  From the latest composite race rocket to Hybrids with extra-cushiony seats, we’ll do anything to get you cycling.  We love having some e-bikes on tour, because they keep the whole group happy and together, no one waiting, no one embarassed.  Bring your pedals and shoes if you’re used to clipping in, we always provide helmets and handlebar bags.  If you’d rather bring your own bike on tour, we’ll mount it and tune it for you on site, and then take it all apart again at the end of the tour.

Is a Cycling Tour for me?

Halcyon Cycling Tours are no ordinary vacation: We always have two guides, groups are never more than 8 people, a support vehicle follows riders everywhere. Halcyon is not a group tour, it's a personalized tour. We are extremely flexible with our itineraries, because we want to see you happy, so our guides are always ready to go for an extra 50km or 1000m climb if you have the energy. If you'd rather stop and head for the spa, they will take you there. We offer Racing Bikes, Hybrids, and e-bikes: whatever makes you happy.

Past Cycling Experiences

Thanks for the wonderful vacation Stephane.  You kept your promises and made us all very happy.  I wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your flexibility on tour, we felt like VIPs the entire time.  Thanks for entertaining the whole family, and making us feel at home.   See you in 2014.  From all the Limas.

The Limas – Provence 2013

Travelling with Stéphane in France was an unforgettable experience.  Everything went smoothly, and his attention to detail was fantastic.  We have never relaxed so much in a foreign country.  The Hotels were outstanding, and the restaurants impeccable.  I loved the cycling, he kept both me and Irene happy even though she rides very little, and we really gained a new appreciation for Burgundy Wines.  Overall a 10/10!
