The Slow Cyclist

The Slow Cyclist – specialists in expertly guided cycling and walking holidays for small groups of up to 12 like-minded souls to Rwanda, Tuscany, Transylvania, and new for 2019 Zagori in Northern Greece. The Slow Cyclist team has immersed itself in these beautiful destinations over months, and sometimes years, working to put together the perfect trip that uncovers the food, culture, history, people and landscapes that make them special. With a firm belief that travel is worth taking time over, and that a great holiday means getting under the skin of a place, The Slow Cyclist is all about slowing-down, looking-up and enjoying the journey.

The company’s mission is to go the extra mile to give guests incredible, slow travel experiences, all with impeccable service. Travellers can expect gourmet picnics in hilltop pastures, experts that guide them through the stories of the region, charming, comfortable accommodation in homes, guest houses and farm stays, and total immersion in the country. ‘Slow Cycling’ is a way of life, and whether guests like pottering along dusty back-roads, inching up soaring mountains or winding through wildflower meadows, The Slow Cyclist guides and hosts make sure they get the most out of their time on – and off – the bike. Electric bicycles are also available on all trips to ensure they are open to all levels – even the slowest cyclist.

The Slow Cyclist runs scheduled trips departing between February and October each year, for up to 12 guests, with a fixed itinerary and focus. However, many guests choose to travel privately with family or friends.
