Cycling for Softies launch NEW cycling tours in Spain and Portugal

Cycling for Softies have added Spain and Portugal to their collection of gentle cycling tours across Europe’s beautiful wine regions. Their cycling holidays in Spain are designed with leisure at their heart. Sunny pedalling is often followed by a peaceful siesta before heading into town for the evening. Cycling the historic Douro valley in Portugal involves leisurely cycling alongside the gentle river, marvelling at terraced vineyards.

Cycling for Softies offer a range of tours through Catalonia. Experience the amazing region of Catalonia through its delicious cuisine. As an example, their Classic, self-guided Flavours of Catalonia is the perfect 7-night Spanish cycling getaway for foodies, filled authentic treats and traditional dishes. The tour starts in the mountains and winds its way down to the coast, visiting important gastronomic centres of the region. The cycling routes on this tour are leisurely, but that doesn’t mean you can’t reward yourself with some local wine and traditional snack of cured ham along the way.

Taking an E-Bike through the Historic Douro Valley is a lovely way to explore the region and the vibrant city of Porto. Most of the cycling on this tour follows the Douro River as it gently flows through the valley, passing by historic towns and friendly villages. As a major wine region, you’ll also get the chance to visit vineyards. The 7-night tour incudes a boat trip on the Douro.
