Contours Cycling Holidays

Find your perfect route


The UK is filled with incredible landscapes, unusual architecture, historical sites and friendly towns just waiting for your arrival. Join the dots on a Contours Cycling Holiday and visit them all.

Where will I be riding?

Our holidays follow Sustrans-approved cycling routes. These routes showcase the very best of the British countryside, while keeping to marked cycle lanes, quiet country roads, traffic-free cycle paths, picturesque park trails and calm canal paths.


What kind of ride should I expect?

From challenging routes like the Way of the Roses, brimming with sight-seeing opportunities, to the remote Reivers Route, which winds out into the wilderness, we have holidays to suit riders of all interests and experience levels. With point-to-point luggage transfers available to book, you could even forgo heavy panniers and backpacks! Read our extensive route descriptions to find your ideal ride.

Why Contours?

With over twenty years in the business of organising point-to-point holidays in the great outdoors, we'll make sure your holiday is the very best it can be.

Featured Routes


Dales Cycleway

Yorkshire is a cyclist's paradise. The land rises and falls all around, transforming quiet lanes into challenging ascents that reward the triumphant rider with panoramic views over the rolling green fields, wildflower meadows, and limestone landscapes of the Dales.


La Vuelta a Dales

The scenic landscapes of the Yorkshire Dales are overlaid by an extensive network of peaceful lanes - perfect for a tour by bicycle. Ride through the national park's best dales and passes on the Vuelta a Dales route, and climb to the most far-ranging viewpoints.


Way of The Roses

An ideal sight-seeing route, full of stately homes, gardens, castles, cathedrals, museums, train lines and natural phenomena. The Way of the Roses crosses Lancashire, the Pennines and Yorkshire from Morecambe to Bridlington, following quiet lanes through countryside hemmed by drystone walls and exploring distinctive towns and villages on its way.
