Maximum ride time on meticulously researched routes, with exceptional personal service & genuine cultural immersion using outstanding local guides.

Cycling Centuries began as a far-fetched suggestion in 1986 when few companies were in the field of cycle touring. Maggie Deffens took that suggestion and ran with it, creating Cycling Through The Centuries, a unique and specialized company offering small group, culturally in-depth cycling trips off-the-beaten tourist path.

We started with tours in northern Portugal’s wine country and sunny West Coast and from there branched out to the rest of Portugal and into neighboring Spain and southern France, then later the less traveled destinations of Albania, Morocco and Croatia. Over the last 30 years we have shared our love of these countries with hundreds of other cyclists.
