Supported Tours - ACT Cycling Tours

Supported Tours

Our regular supported tours are the main stay of the company.

This type of tour is where your daily rides are supported by a vehicle that drives the same route, and is at hand if needed, as well as meeting the cyclists every 25 to 30 miles for a ‘pitstop’. At the ‘pitstop’, you’ll be fed and watered, and refreshed. So there’s no need to carry anything on your bike other than water, inner tube and tyre levers, and the odd gel if you think you’ll need it. Your bags are all transported by the van from one hotel to the next.

So all you have to do is ride and enjoy the scenery. It’s a great way to cycle, just like riding a sportive, but for multiple days, for the length of the tour. With us as well, your bike is collected from your door, and brought back to your door, after the tour. So this really is the easiest and best way to cycle tour. You just arrive and ride. Everything else is organised for you.

So if your time is limited, and you need someone else to take the hard work out of touring, then join us on one of our superb, enjoyable tours. No one will be left behind, as there will always be a riding leader close to the group at the back. Normally the main tour divides up into 2 or 3 groups, with riders of similar abilities riding together. We will meet the support vehicle normally a couple of times a day, to ‘re-fuel’ and take a little rest. The social aspect of the tour is very important. Over the tour the group gets to know each other well, and with a common goal, it’s a great experience socially as well as physically. They will be fun!

There will also be gpx files available for each tour, and if you have a garmin, they are invaluable, and make life much easier.

The iconic ‘LEJOG’ (Lands End to John O’Groats) is the daddy of our End-to-End tours and always proves very popular but we also offer other options for those who want to explore the beautiful Emerald Isle of Ireland or Slovenia, Italy, Spain and Portugal. All tours offer something different whether that be in the duration, terrain or the scenery to be enjoyed.

With any ACT tour you can expect the standard of accommodation and support to be of the highest quality and further details of routes and activity level can be found within the tour information.

Of course, if you have any questions on any of our tours, then please feel free to contact us, we are more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
