Experience the wide open road

Wide Open Road Cycling Tours have been operating since 2001 and are owned, operated and run by Clare Holdsworth. Based in Melbourne, Australia, Clare has extensive cycling and travel experience in Europe and Australia, has detailed knowledge of the best cycling routes as well as the cultures, traditions, food and wine of the regions they pass through.

Our rides are point to point (we don’t believe in spending valuable holiday time in buses), we cycle around 80km a day, attract a mix of abilities, ages and genders. The common factor is a love of challenging but sociable cycling with a good meal and glass of wine (or two!). Many of our customers become lifelong friends and return in following years.
