Cycle Touring

Cycle Touring does not trap you in the box that is a car, but rather opens up your surroundings and allows you to experience them to the fullest.

Cycle Touring trips can range from days or weeks to months or even years as you travel long distances across regions and countries.

Tours may be planned by the Individual(s), a Holiday Company or by a Charity as a means of fundraising.

Cycle Touring is not the same as Leisure Cycling in a specific location, such as a city or a specific area that you might be on holiday.

Cycle Touring is specifically for those who will be going to different Countries or Regions and will be staying overnight in different locations.

Cycle Touring Events

  • London to Paris Cycle - 12th September - 15th September, 2019

Cycling Equipment

If you are Cycle Touring for longer than just a day trip you may require a bike capable of carrying heavy loads.

Although many different bicycles can be used, specialist touring bikes are built to carry heavy loads and to be ridden more comfortably over long distances.

For longer distances, panniers may be used to store your belongings.

Panniers are bags on your bike that typically mount over your wheels, either in the front or the back, or both.

Panniers are usually mounted on racks that are bolted onto the bike frame.

Carefully selecting your kit is very important when planning a Cycle Touring holiday.

The lighter your load, the easier riding will be.

The equipment you will want to take on any given trip will vary depending on the environment and weather conditions.

Usually your Cycle Touring kit will include a cooking stove and utensils, a tent and sleeping bag, spare parts and tools, food and water, and maps.

A Travel Insurance policy is not there to cover the bicycle that you will be using.  If you have Home Contents Insurance, you might find that your bicycle is covered under this policy or an extension is available to be made to your policy.

Pre Existing Medical Conditions

If you have pre existing medical conditions and you plan to participate in Cycle Touring whilst travelling abroad, we are able to provide you with a policy.

When prompted you should select Hazardous Activity Pack B.
