The Explorer tours on the other hand cater for the cyclist who wants to get off the beaten track a little, cycle the mythical climbs of the pro races without the crowds and have more time to relax and enjoy the towns we pass through. The Explorer tours are typically suitable for cyclists who also want that little bit more cycling and to test themselves day in, day out on challenging rides!
