YuBike Tours — A Little More About Us

YuBike Tours was born from the desire to broaden cyclists’ horizons — to help people get in touch with the essence of some of the most beautiful locations in the world by riding along the roads and paths less traveled, through natural landscapes and impressive cities. We are always looking for new cycling tour locations, but our main cycling destinations are in France, Italy, and Holland. We have spent years cycling around these three European countries, learning the best roads and paths to unlock the best sights and discoveries for our guests.

 

Bike & Hotel | Bike & Barge Tours

Here at YuBike Tours, we offer bike-and-hotel tours or bike-and-barge tours, depending on where our guests choose to go. We carefully choose all the hotels that host us according to the principles of sustainability and responsible tourism. Your luggage will be in the next hotel at the end of each day!

With our bike-and-barge tours — such as our 4-day and 5-day Cycling Among the Flowers tours — we eat and sleep overnight on the barge and we start cycling after breakfast. Then, after a day’s cycling, we rejoin the boat in the evening! Both of these formats allow us to transport our guests’ luggage for them, allowing for a lighter, easier cycling experience!

 

YuBike's Ethos

We love the slow bike journey, where the rider has enough time to take in the world around them. Our bike tours are itinerant, meaning we travel from one place to the next. Most cycling routes consist of easy-to-intermediate trails, with a few are more challenging trails along the way. Our Tuscan Coast and Islands bike tour is a good example of a journey that mixes easy and intermediate trail difficulties.

We ride between 30 to 50 km (18 to 30 miles) a day. Along the trail, we give special importance to the artistic and natural beauty of the places we visit, offering many guided visits of the sights and attractions along the way. We also allow time and space for travel photography, giving our guests an opportunity to capture unique moments as we explore Europe’s less-traveled roads and passageways. We offer packages from three days up to a week with luggage transport and the possibility of bike rental. We also offer one-day theme excursions, if you’re looking for something shorter. We schedule departures and arrivals of our bike tours in cities with train connections. We promote cultural exchange through international groups, between 6 and 22 participants.

Responsible Tourism

Our passion for new horizons, cycling, art, and nature, has brought us, naturally, to the practice of responsible tourism. We want to respect and preserve all of the cities, towns, and villages we visit, and to leave the stunning natural locations we visit just as we find them. Responsible tourism guides us in everything we do, including how we choose the hotels our guests stay at on our various cycling tours. Responsible tourism is an attitude as much as it is a policy; it is the practice of ensuring you enrich and benefit the places you visit.

 

We Want Anyone and Everyone to Enjoy Our Cycling Tours

It is our goal here at YuBike to encourage anybody and everybody to discover some of the most special cycling routes in Europe, even less sporty people. Some of our cycling routes are easier than others, and if you have any worries about the difficulty or whether or not you are capable, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
