Cycle Tours for 2024

Come and enjoy the ACT experience !
Superb cycling in interesting places, often in sumptuous hotels. Be challenged and be comfortable !

Have your bike collected from your door ! The support van carries your luggage, and feeds you during the day. Your only decision is when to take a photograph, and what to eat that evening !

We are famous for our ‘End to End’ rides. That’s from one end of a country to the other end. Sometimes north to South, sometimes East to West, whichever is the most interesting.

See the beauty of Slovenia, the magic of Bohemia, the Grandeur of Bavaria, the history of Italy and the peace and quiet of Portugal. They are all breath taking in their own way.

The ACT cycle team is headed up by me, Martyn Ryan. I am a qualified Tour Leader, and Outdoor First Aid trained.

I am passionate about cycling and am committed to making your dream of completing a cycle tour into a reality.

I have been involved in planning trips and fundraising for many years and finally realised that I should give more people the chance of completing an iconic tour such as Lands End to John O’Groats, or cycle in countries and areas my clients wouldn’t normally visit, hence the birth of ACT Cycling Tours.

When not on a bike, I am happiest creating and mapping new adventures!

I’m a motivator and encourager………and you’ll soon learn my trade mark catch phrase, ‘no significant hills today……….’ (And if you believe that, you’ll believe anything !!)

Thank you for showing me parts of Portugal I’d never seen, great hotels and restaurants regular food/drink stops etc.  It was always reassuring to know there are ‘no significant hills today’.
My bike made it safely there and back - a great unique service - thank you.
I really enjoyed your company and that of all my fellow riders and thoughts have already turned to our next trip!

I've done a few trips with different companies but I must say this was like going away with a group of mates (even though most met on the first day) Martyn has a relaxed but very efficient way of organising everything this made for a great trip with a great bunch of people. Would definitely recommend and will use again.

Shelia -12 Peaks Tour What a great week you gave us all. Now that the dust has settled a little I am left with all the wonderful memories - the pain of trying to climb another of the dirty dozen, the fierce cross winds on the moorland tops, your grin as you photographed the sign at the foot of Hardknott, the miles of beautiful scenery and thousands of sheep producing excellent lamb shanks for supper, and, funniest of all, the laugh we had when we arrived at the real Rosedale Chimney. Everything went well under your splendid directions. A huge thank you for an unforgettable week.
