Find your bike tour style: Single ISO Adventure

You’ve studied with gurus a la Eat, Pray, Love. You’ve hiked the Pacific Crest Trail a la Wild. You’ve even gotten your groove back, a la… well, you know!

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 soulmate as part of a group. Or maybe you just don’t want to pay extra for the dreaded single supplement!

You’re into solo exploration and aren’t afraid of a little adventure. Whether that means you want a trip that offers some good soul-searching time, or are looking to meet up with adventurers like you, BikeTours.com has plenty of options.

Our top recommendations:

Avoid the single surcharge!

South Dalmatia (Bike/E-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!

Secure cycling

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 tourist 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.

Fun groups to join

Wine and Bike in Hungary’s Balaton Uplands — The tour features low mileage; mostly flat terrain; culinary treasures—and unlimited wine! The guided version is led by guides who are proud and impeccable hosts who make their clients feel like personal guests and at home.

Sardinia: A Mine of Memories — This tour will challenge you with its moderately hilly terrain, but don’t let that deter you as e-bikes are an option. And there are plenty of breaks for coffee, lunch, beer, and gelato to fuel you up for the numerous panoramic vistas and scenic, coastal riding.
