The Slow Cyclist (TSC) is looking for a number of highly capable, natural hosts with a flair for superb hospitality and a sense of adventure to work alongside our experienced local guides to give our guests incredible holidays this year and next.

About The Slow Cyclist

Since 2015 TSC has been welcoming guests on imaginatively designed and exceptionally delivered cycling and walking journeys in Europe & Africa. We believe travel is worth taking time over; that a great holiday means getting under the skin of a place and discovering the food, customs, history and people that make it special.

Our guests are discerning travellers with a bit of juice in their legs; those who appreciate our intimate knowledge of some of Europe and Africa’s most special landscapes and cultures. Transylvania was the first place we welcomed guests in 2015. Seven years later we’re still in awe of this magical place, and have added more destinations to our offering.

If you’d like to see what our guests say about us you can do so here.

The Season

Our European season runs from March to October. Each destination is split into two high seasons: spring/summer and autumn. End of July/August there is normally a break.

  • Transylvania - April - July (spring/summer) and September - October (autumn)
  • Zagori - May - July (spring/summer) and September - October (autumn)
  • Mani - April - June (spring/summer) and September - October (autumn)

  • Abruzzo - May - June (summer) and September - October (autumn)
