Adventure holidays Fully Researched By Ralph

Ralph Freeman – Director

“We create one-of-a-kind journeys for active people who want to experience the world differently. We go the extra mile to get off the beaten tourist paths.”

Adventure holidays designed by cyclists, for cyclists

Global Cycling Adventures is run by husband-and-wife team Ralph and Simone Freeman, both keen cyclists. Ralph travels the world researching and discovering new and exciting adventure holiday tours, which cyclists and hikers really want.

OUR POINTS OF DIFFERENCE

  • Tour groups kept small to best suit your needs

    Small groups mean flexibility to tailor rides to your fitness level. Biking gets you up close and personal with your surroundings — small groups keep tours personal. Some even include meals at village houses.

  • Local guides, local food, local culture

    You’ll get an authentic experience of your destination. Even the accommodation is often family-run. We take you to hidden gems off the tourist trail.

  • Adventure AND comfort — in the same tour

    Challenge yourself by day, then relax in your great hotel, guest house, lodge, chalet or boat. Even camping has creature comforts – like special extra-thick mattresses.

  • We balance exercise and relaxation

    Most tours have 4-5 hours of cycling per day, depending on the grading — still plenty of time for sightseeing and resting.

  • Our clients come back again and again

    Very few people tour with us just once — one has even been 18 times (so far!). Many describe tours as life-changing – particularly the hard biking tours.

  • Keep checking — tours are always changing!

    We’re always researching new adventure holidays. If there’s somewhere different you want to go, let us know. We can also create a customised tour for you.
