Welcome to RIDE Holidays | Cycle Tours

Specialist in Providing Bike Tours and Holidays on 2 Wheels

RIDE Holidays cycle tours are achievable for anyone who rides a road bike, not just the serious cyclist. Generally - there are three rides to choose from - the less challenging 'cappuccino' (60km), 'latte' (80km) and the espresso - for those keen on 100km or more. We encourage non-riding partners (Team Macchiato) to join us. To ensure they enjoy themselves equally, we tailor events and activities throughout the tour for them. They won't just be sitting in the back of a van watching cyclists.

Our guides are ego free. Our rides are not races. But neither is it a baguette and basket type tour either. You will be challenged which is why we provide a 10 week training program for the majority of our trips. The hotels we use are picked for location and are generally 4 star. It's important to us that you eat and drink well. It's more than just a bike tour. We use a combination of local and Australasian staff. To insure consistency one of the owners will be on each trip. That is our guarantee.

In lieu of COVID-19, we have decided that we won't be travelling to Europe and North America in 2021. Focussing on our own back yard in New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific. Safety is our priority. We will monitor the situation closely and will get back to our favourite countries as soon as we possibly can. You can still book for the likes of France, Italy, Canada etc however we won't take deposits. Our 2021 local calendar will continually evolve. We can't wait to explore the likes of Northland, Queenstown, South Australia, Tasmania, Noosa, Gibb River Road and New Caledonia. Amongst others.

Thank you for your support.
