Enjoy guided bike rides in Europe around the major cities.They cost about 18 euro for 4 hours.They are expensive but well done.Some offer more than one tour.Often led by a wacky humoured american guide.Fattire and Mikes bikes (see their websites)are a couple.Done this in Munich Barcelona Paris Prague Amsterdam and london.One plus is they let you hire the bike to do your stuff DIY.The bike is usually a crusier fat tire one..Dozens and dozens on them when the weather is fine.Reconmend

Re: Cycling tours in Europe

Ive been on a number of guided bike rides inc Paris Barcelona munich Prague Amsterdam & Berlin. and london.These last about 4 hours and cost about 18 euro.Usually led by a young american guide with wacky humour.Good fun but not serious.Companies i have used are Mikes bikes and Fatire. Both have websites and are very very popluar with lots of users.sometimes 50+ at once.paris offers several different rides.They let you hire the bike after.More stops than cycling to be honest.Just fatire cruiser type bikes.Recommend espec if you have a companion who isnt a serious cu cylist as they would enjoy too.Makes you wonder how much money these guys are making though!

I was guided once by a motorcycle pizza-delivery boy to the outskirts of a Dutch city where i was lost, during a touring vacation of mine. Touring in Europe is exciting, safe and fun !

This is shameless self promotion, but I have a very small company that operates tours in the Algarve in Southern Portugal. We are a start up and wont deliver our tours till mid February.
