FAQ

DO YOU ARRANGE TRANSPORT OF CYCLES TO THE ACCOMMODATION?

On our trips your bike will be ready for you when you arrive at the hotel, and after the trip we will arrange return of bikes to the hire centre. So you don’t need to collect bikes, or clean them either.

DO I NEED TO PAY A DEPOSIT FOR THE HIRE BIKE?

No, that will be done by us.

IF I’M TRAVELLING ALONE CAN I STILL SHARE A ROOM WITH SOMEONE?

On each trip the participant’s choice of room is allocated on a first past the post basis. You will always be allocated a room with someone of the same sex.

IF I’M LACTOSE INTOLERANT WILL I BE ABLE TO COME ON ONE OF YOUR TRIPS?

We have had many guests with different food allergies and intolerances over the years who have always been well looked after, so it won’t be a problem.

WHEN I LAND AT THE AIRPORT HOW DO I KNOW WHERE TO GO?

One of our tour leaders will be waiting for you in the arrivals hall right outside the exit from the bag pick up area.

DO I NEED TO BRING PEDALS FOR MY HIRE BIKE?

No, if you let us know which pedals you use we’ll arrange for them to be on the bike ready for you.

WHAT IF I’M TOO TIRED TO GET BACK TO THE HOTEL DURING A SESSION?

There’s always a support vehicle on every excursion so you can hop on board if you get tired.

ARE THE GUIDES ON THE TRIP ENGLISH SPEAKING?

Yes, all the Swedish guides on our trips speak English.

IS THERE A SPA AT THE ACCOMMODATION AND IF SO CAN I USE IT?

Yes, there are spas at many of the hotels and we are very welcome to enjoy using the facilities.

DO I HAVE TO TAKE PART IN ALL THE TRAINING SESSIONS IF I’M STAYING FOR A WHOLE WEEK?

Not at all. You can take part in our well arranged training sessions on every day if you so choose. But sometimes participants just want to take it easy, so it’s of course perfectly OK to
have one or a few rest days.
