Looking for a holiday? Loved the cycling on the Olympics? - This is for you - Saddle Skedaddle

Hi guys,
So have you been inspired by the Olympics and how amazing team GB did at the cycling?  

I have been inspired but I know I wont see it through but I thought I would share with you another fab website I have come across spurred on by the Olympics! 

 This is for anyone with the love of the outdoors and cycling introducing - "Saddle Skedaddle"

At Saddle Skedaddle they offer mountain bike holidays, cycling holidays and road cycling holidays so you have a choice out of those three. 

They cover a large amount of countries for their holidays from Austria to Peru!  
So there really is something to suit everyone.

They also offer bespoke holidays and vouchers which can be tailor made to meet your requirements.

A spell-binding road cycling holiday that taking in vast areas of lush cloudforest and rainforest, magnificent volcanoes, the coast and a network of great paved roads and makes Costa Rica the perfect road cycling destination.

Bikes and Kit


At Saddle Skedaddle you are welcome to bring along your own bike – many people prefer to. 
they’ll advise you on relevant airline procedures. If you’d rather use one of their bikes that's fine too. 
In most locations they hire either front suspension mountain bikes or road bikes made by the top bicycle manufacturer, Giant, and they also provide a helmet too. If you’re travelling abroad, you’ll get a recommended kit list in your Pre-departure Dossier.

The French Alps are home to the most famous Tour de France climbs, and this pass-bagging road cycling tour will take in the finest of them all including the  Colombiere, Telegraph and Alpe d'Huez - so get your climbing legs on!

Vehicle Support

Support vehicles are used on most of their guided and supported trips, except where the routes don’t allow access. 
The vehicle carries all your kit as well as bike spares, repair kit, first aid, snacks and lunch, leaving you to travel light and enjoy your holiday. If, at a certain point on the ride you want to rest or forget cycling for the day, you can hop aboard the vehicle and put your feet up!
