Our Epic Adventures are once in a lifetime multi region journeys. Inspired by famous historical figures, they are by design more adventurous and challenging undertakings.
Every 18 months Ride and Seek develop a new point to point cycling adventure. In 2012 after the success of the BBC series “On Hannibal’s Trail”, which our guide Sam co-presented, we followed the trail of Hannibal from Barcelona to Rome! In 2015 we rode from Paris to Moscow in Napoleon’s footsteps, in 2016 it was Caesar – London to Rome – where will 2017 take us?
So ride with us into history on the road less travelled on truly epic bike tours.
All of our Epic adventures run with 2 week stages to allow riders to fit these expeditions into their busy lives. Why not ride a stage this year and return next year to do the rest!
Hotels: Mostly 1 night stays at best available hotels, focused on unique stays – castles, monasteries, guest houses.
Kms per day: Average of 110km (sag wagon always available)
Cultural Activities: Shorter guided tours, wine tastings, local food experiences, historical background and discussions with trained guides (who double as bike guides). Most activites take place in the afternoon after the days riding although the guides will discuss the history (eg Hanniballic route history as we ride and beforehand each morning or over an aperatif) and the food and wine each night.
