Coming Soon – Classic Climbs, Time Trials & European Cycling Trips Made Easy

Summer view with mountain road in Pyrenees

We have been working our (very stylish) socks off for the last few months to bring you something very exciting and next week we can reveal everything. Before then, we wanted to share what we are doing with our members and invite you to come and explore cycling paradise with us…

Guided Tours to the best climbs in Europe

Take two days off work and we will give you a cycling holiday with:

  • 4 guided rides including classic climbs and secret local routes
  • A time trial up the major climb on Sunday morning
  • 4 nights in great bike hotels
  • Transfers to and from the airport
  • Breakfasts & ride nutrition
  • Prices from £449 to £599 for 4 nights.

The tours are run in partnership with some amazing local guides. These guides are all English speaking and have amazing knowledge of their region. They have hand-picked the best routes with a mix of hitting the classic climbs as well as some lesser known spots that you would not know about if you were not from the area. Ride in groups of 6-16 people, we ride together on the flats and then re-group at the summits. Explore the classic climbs of Europe and the regions around them.

Do it yourself long weekends

Ride the best climbs in Europe with none of the hassle. We are running regular bike friendly transfers from major European airports to the main climbs and then working with the best bike hotels to give you amazing rates for your cycling breaks. No more figuring out how to fit two bike boxes in a rental car of figuring out the best way to Bormio. We will take the cost and hassle out of getting you to the climbs and then provide you with route summaries and GPX files for the best local routes – designed by our expert local partners. We even recommend great coffee stops and local delicacies you have to try.

Build your own cycling breaks

Perfect for groups, cycling clubs & company trips. We are launching a feature where you can design your own trip from a 2 day mini break to a longer ride across the Pyrenees. Add whatever you want – local guides, support vehicles, different hotel standards and different routes. You build your break and get an instant price which you can book on the spot or share with your group and book later.

Time Trial Leaderboards

Don’t pretend you are not competitive. We have seen how you all ride on your commutes! So we are not going to pretend that we are not racing each other up the main climbs. Join our Strava Club and compete for the yearly Time Trial championship, prizes awarded for our fastest rider up Alpe d’Huez, Tourmalet, Stelvio, Ghisallo & Ventoux. Beat our guide’s time and get a UK Sportive Weekend for Free!

If you are not a pure climber, get bragging rides from beating your mates up the climbs.

Sportive Breaks Needs You

We are giving members an exclusive deal to come join us on the first trip to each location. We ask in return for that you write us an (honest) review of the trip and if you have a great time, tell your riding friends about us.

Before our first trip, we are shooting some video in each location. Want to come and ride for free on one of these shoots? Send us an email to info@sportivebreaks.com and we will share dates and information. The trips will be 2 nights, 2 rides including a time trial up the main climb and a great local route. You buy your flights, everything else is on us. In return we need you to be our models for the photos / videos and to write a short review of your weekend.
