The Most Romantic Cycling Holidays


We know that those of you that enjoy cycling with that special someone will be well-aware of what a rewarding (and romantic) experience it can be.

Getting to share your cycling passion with the ones you care about is one of the most fulfilling parts of cycling as a sport and a beloved pastime. But, if you both love cycling and you’ve never thought of enjoying a cycling holiday with your significant other, maybe it’s something you should consider!

At Freewheel Holidays we’re home to some of the very best cycling holidays in Europe money can buy. Many of which can be considered pretty romantic, too.

Here are just a few of our pics for the most romantic cycling holidays.


Also known as “The Garden of France”, the Loire Valley is home to some of the most exceptional rolling vineyards and exquisite examples of French Architecture, in the form of mystical castles and chateaux.

Offering a true fairy-tale feel that few other holidays could ever hope to come close to matching, the picturesque landscapes and quaint villages you’ll discover as you ride from glorious view to glorious view will be a feast for the eyes and the soul.

Then, of course, there’s the beautiful River Loire – the perfect romantic riverside cycling route – which you’ll get to explore from the nearby city of Blois. Home to one of the world’s most famous gothic cathedrals.

A must-ride for those seeking the perfect mix of countryside and man-made beauty.

Talk about two birds one stone! The magnificence of both Lake Bled and Venice, while miles apart in both distance and style, is really something to behold.

Lake Bled is quite literally like something taken from a fantasy film, like Lord of the Rings. The iconic castle church sits gently atop the “floating island” at the very center of the lake, which is made up of crystal-clear turquoise waters. Backed by a tranquil yet imposing mountain range, this really is one of Slovenia’s ultimate highlights and the perfect romantic spot to stop off and soak up the view.

But then you’ll ride your way into a totally new country… Italy! Let’s be honest, for cyclists, could there be much more of a romantic thought than crossing borders with the one you love? It’s a huge achievement, and something you’ll be able to share together!

Eventually, you’ll hit one of the most romantic cities known to man, Venice. The famed floating city is the ideal final destination for you to explore and sample all the sights, sounds and, of course, cuisine the famous mythical city has to offer.

Lake Maggiore Short Break


If you’re looking for something a little quicker to tick off your cycling bucket list, our Lake Maggiore Short Break is always a great choice. Your five-night break will see you travel to Switzerland – one of the most visually breathtaking countries in the entire world.

You’ll be able to take your loved one by the hand as you stroll your way down the gorgeous Piazza Grande, as palm trees sway in the gentle breeze and greet you as you pass on by.

But the medieval city of Bellinzona is a real highlight here, home to one of the largest Swiss valleys in Ticino’s capital. You’ll also get to sample the wondrous views of the valley landscape on an exclusive train ride through the vast Southern Swiss fields – a great way to put your feet up and recharge after putting your cycling legs to good use.

But, of course, none of this is any match for the iconic Lake Maggiore itself. It will undoubtedly cast a spell on both you and your cycling loved one.
