Disclaimer: Adventure cycling tours operated often go beyond the beaten track, and the countries where you may ride are not always predictable. Due to these reasons, it is occasionally necessary to reroute or update itineraries. The tour operator guarantees that they will not change a trip unless it is for safety reasons or to improve it. The listed hotels are always accurate at the time of writing, but should there be a change to any hotel, it will always be for a similar or better one.
