FAQ

How many people will be in the group?

Since we believe smaller groups mean better experiences, we usually travel in groups of five to ten people. The minimal number of people for an individual group tour is four.


Who will be guiding us?

The tours are led by experienced cycling guides who know the tour locations like the back of their hands. They will be there for you with their experience and skills any time you’ll need them. They’ll try to make every tour more exciting with the right stories.


What about food?

All of our tours are planed with stops, where we can find local culinary specialties.


I’m not a PRO cyclist. Can I join?

Our cycling tours are suitable both for those who cycle regularly and those who take a cycling trip occasionally. We use electric bikes on our tours to turn even the most difficult trips into an enjoyable journey for those with less stamina or technical skills. Plus, we adjust every tour to your skills and abilities.


What should I bring on a tour?

Most importantly, you should wear comfortable sports clothes. Please bring bottle of water and sun protection in summer months.

Can we bring kids with us?

Kids are also welcome, as long as they can cycle independently and can ride for at least 20 kilometers. Please notify us about any children joining when you book a tour. That way we can adjust the difficulty of the tour to them.


What about the bad weather?

Unfortunately, the weather is not up to us, so even the good plans might be ruined due to bad weather. We’ll make sure the tours happen even in less ideal weather, but we need to put your safety first. In case your tour gets cancelled due to bad weather, we’ll fully reimburse you.


What should I wear?

Wear comfortable sports clothes. You should also know some of the tours take place in the mountains where temperatures can change rapidly even during the summer. We suggest you bring warm clothes. You should also consider a waterproof jacket in case of bad weather.
