At Podia you won’t find an average cycling holiday. When you come on a Podiaventure you will experience locations you never knew existed, with roads you only dreamed of, riding with people who are just like you!
We don’t offer trips in the usual cycling destinations – there are plenty of other companies for that. That is why our guests enjoy Podiaventures. They trust us to find new and interesting destinations that others don’t think to cycle. The proof in this trust is when guests fly from the other-side of the world to participate in their second Podiaventure second year in a row!
A cycling holiday where it’s all about adventure and exploration
Roadventures are a chance to get away and explore new locations; places you might not have thought of visiting. You can switch off from normal life and concentrate on discovering something new. Podia takes care of all the tedious arrangements.
We spend hundreds of hours researching, planning and testing our trips to make sure every detail is right. Routes that challenge you, like the 50 switchbacks of the Vršič Pass in Slovenia and then reward you, like descending down 10km on a Dolomite-esq road for beer and pasta at the base of the mountains.
You can trust that we have the kind of local knowledge that makes your trip much more enjoyable. Like visiting a traditional cheesemaker halfway up a climb in Poland.
Or an in-depth understanding of the locations and their history. Such as Beskid Niski and how the Ukrainian uprising led to the forced resettlement of hundreds of thousands of people. Former roads and settlements make this the perfect place to explore by gravel bike.
And then there is the Mangart, one of our favourite roads of all time. It doesn’t get much better!
Not your average cycling holiday!
