Cycling through luscious landscapes with your loved one can create special memories unique to any other activity. No where will you find the opportunity for a joint adventure that can be tailored to your tastes in an abundance of stunning locations than on a bike. Whether you are both keen cyclists, or simply want to dive into something new, the joys and freedom of cycling will certainly offer an experience of a lifetime.

Below are the Top 5 destinations that we know couples will love, and all of them can be moulded to your own preferences. 

Venice to Croatia – Cycle into a Labyrinth of Colourful Landscapes

Exploring the nooks and crannies of Venice’s alleys and waterways couldn’t be a better starting activity for your week of cycling. The mix of beautiful architecture, glistening waterways and rich nature continues all the way to Porec in Croatia. 

If a romantic ride is firmly on the agenda, look no further. With one of our recent Love Velo riders getting down on one knee amongst the poppies near Palmanova whilst on this particular cycling holiday, you can be assured it’ll get the love juices flowing.

Loire Valley – Ride, Wine and Dine 

Not a confident cyclist? The Loire à Vélo is a flat, traffic free cycle path, which is perfect for those wanting to leisurely enjoy everything the Loire Valley has to offer. Ride along the tranquil Loire river, past picturesque villages and of course the magnificent Chateau de Chambord that you can enter to discover its grand history. 

We recommend you take some time to relax in the banks of the Loire with a glass of locally produced wine, as you will most likely cycle past the vineyards where it originated.

Algarve and Alentejo – Cycling the Spectacular Coastline

Dreamy beaches form the only landscape you’ll see on this cycling holiday, providing you with the ultimate getaway from a hectic office life. Fall in love with incredible coastal rock formations, expansive views in the Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina Natural Park, and your partner all over again.  

You’ll pass many quaint Portugese towns and villages that are ideal for stopping for a taste of the local wines and cuisine, which definitely won’t disappoint.

Mallorca – Bike to Luxury Boutiques

Combining the simple lifestyle of cycling with evenings of luxury and comfort at our carefully chosen fincas and farmhouses, is certainly the way to go if you want to spend quality time with your other half. Explore the pristine Mallorcan beaches, rolling rural countryside and legendary climbs by day, then settle down to be pampered by night.

Mallorca’s 300 days of sunshine means we can guarantee your holiday will be glorious whenever suits you best.

Japan – Immerse Yourselves into a Fascinating Culture

Venturing out of your comfort zone is just as rewarding when you do it with someone you love, especially when it means discovering a completely new culture together. Japan is rich with culture inspiringly different to that of Europe, what with meticulously designed temples, flavoursome food and fascinating traditions, all of which you can experience on your ride.

A particular highlight of your holiday that takes you through the peaceful and mysterious countryside of Southern Japan, is taking a dip in one of the thousands of hot springs.
