You’re cycling and traveling solo, and you want to feel safe and unlikely to get lost.
Or you’re on your own, but you want to ride, socialize and meet others — maybe even your cycling soul mate as part of a group. Or maybe you just don’t want to pay extra for the dreaded single supplement!
Our top picks:
Avoid the single surcharge!
South Dalmatia (Bike and Boat) — Ride during the day and sleep on the boat each night during this tour in Southern Dalmatia, the smallest and most sparsely populated region of Croatia.*
*For this tour, you can request a roommate and avoid the single cabin/room surcharge. Even if they can’t match you with anyone, you still won’t have to pay the single surcharge, as long as you requested a roommate!
Danube Bike Path 8 Nights (Upscale Lodging) — Its dedicated, well-marked bike paths take you past vineyards, castles, medieval towns, and cultural attractions. Although rarely crowded, the path is a popular tourism destination and considered especially safe.
Avenue Verte: Paris to London — This popular route follows the new greenway between these two cultural icons of Europe. This is a great tour for solo travelers looking for dedicated bike paths and others along the same route to see and meet.
