Our Holiday Route Guides

We want you to relax and enjoy the many quiet lanes and tracks of East Anglia, without any worries about getting lost along the way. So we provide a level of detailed mapping which we are pretty certain is unmatched by any other UK cycle holiday operator. All of our holiday customers receive full Ordnance Survey mapping of their tour route, in both paper and GPS formats. This provides maximum flexibility and ease of use - both out on the road during the day, and at your hotel in the evenings.

Ordnance Survey Explorer 1:25000 Scale Maps - Yours to Keep

We provide OS Explorer Maps covering your full route itinerary. We mark up your route (personalised to the nominal daily mileage preference you've given us) with orange highlighter pen. We also mark up some colour-coded shortcut options and route extensions, to give you a good degree of flexibility each day. These paper maps are perfect for spreading out on a pub table each evening, to make your plans for the next day.

Satmap GPS - Hire Unit for your Holiday

We provide one high quality Satmap GPS Unit per touring party, which slots into a handlebar mount on one of your bikes. The unit displays full Ordnance Survey mapping and is programmed with your full route itinerary (directly replicating the information provided on your paper maps). Out on the road, this provides a highly convenient junction by junction navigation display, minimising the inconvenience of frequent map-unfolding stops, and dispensing with the need for a large clumsy "map platter" on your handlebars.
