<p>A unique ride through some of the most dramatic landscapes to be found in Europe. These islands are of volcanic origin. Lanzarote suffered a series of eruptions in the 18th century and as a result has some fascinating volcano and lava scenery. The architectural works of César Manrique form a valuable complement to the volcanic environment and are a must. The benign climate, neither hot in summer nor cold in winter, means that cycling is possible all year round. </p>

  • We think cycle touring is the ideal way to travel in Europe and that is why we are very pleased to launch European Bike Adventures, as it allows us the opportunity to offer a whole new set of experiences to people we know will appreciate them.

    Accordingly we have taken our time in selecting the portfolio of cycle tours you find listed here.

    A selection of hand-picked bike trips in spectacular places throughout Europe that focus on fun with the same attention to detail and quality that hundreds of our very satisfied clients have been enjoying with Ibero Cycle Tours since 1999.

     

  • On a self-guided tour, you are basically independent. IberoCycle transports luggage to the next hotel. 

    Riders are expected to complete each day's ride, unless there is an emergency, or a mechanical problem. 

    Cyclists do not travel as part of a group or with a guide, although they may coincide with other cyclists on the same trip.

    Our "IberoCycle On Call" service means we are always available for help or advice.

    Cyclists are provided with our own detailed Route Guide and maps for their chosen route.

    Fitter cyclists may extend stages at will.

    Breakfast
    Information Pack (Route Guide and maps)
    Luggage transport between hotels

    Please note that at the beginning of the tour, clients are responsible for getting to the first hotel in Costa Teguise (just a short taxi ride from the airport) At the end of the tour on Day Seven, clients take a short taxi or bus ride from Arreciffe to the airport.

  • Arrival and departure point for this tour in the Airport of Lanzarote (Arrecife). See destinations here

    IberoCycle will organise a transfer from the airport to your first hotel in Costa Teguise at the beginning of the tour. Likewise, at the end of the tour, another transfer will take you from the hotel in Arrecife to the airport. 

  • Information will be added shortly for the bikes available on these tours. Bikes are supplied by our bike rental company on Lanzarote, Papagayo Bike. We also have bike rental on the beautiful island of Mallorca with Papagayo Bike Mallorca. 

  • Hybrid e-bike    Road E-bike

    The last few years have seen a revolution in the use of e-bikes. We now offfer e bikes on absolutely all of our rides. There are of course multiple advantages to using one on a bike tour:

    The difficulty level is lowered by a grade. Thus an intermediate level tour becomes an easy tour as the motor assists pedalling.

    The distance you can cycle on each day is effectively "reduced". Longer distances become accessible to a greater range of riding abilities. 

    Ability levels between riders on the same tour are levelled out as riders can choose an e-bike to enable them to keep up with stronger riders. 

    No more worrying about the hills! 

    So if you are in any doubt about whether a particular tour might be too challenging for you, then take the e-bike option. You can still get a good workout by keeping the pedal assistance level low. E-bikes are now available on all of our tours. And many have both the standard e-bike and also the road e-bike.
