We choose to define a cycle touring holiday as any trip where riders stay in more than one different overnight location. So our Italian trip which often stays in 2 or 3 different 'hub' towns over the course of a week would be a good example.
We use the term Raid to cover those long-distance point-to-point trips where riders progress from town to town each day, staying in a different overnight location every night. The Raid Pyrenean would be the best example of that type of tour.
The iconic 700km Atlantic-to-Mediterranean traverse running along the spine of the Pyrenees and climbing 15-20 classic Tour de France cols along the way.
Breathtaking scenery, epic climbs and delicious Italian cuisine all make for a memorable week. Add the Stelvio, Gavia, Mortirolo and others to your palmares.
