BREAKAWAY cycle tours is a family run cycling tour company that originally began with FLS cycling tours. Our Director, Janice Dougall along with her business partner founded FLS in 2012 as a way to combine a passion for cycling with a love for travel. Three years later Janice and her family created BREAKAWAY Cycle Tours with the hope of continuing to provide a unique and unforgettable cycling experience that showcases Europe from the BEST seat on offer!
"Cycling in France for me is all about the simple joys. It's the incredible sense of freedom that comes only from feeling the wind in your hair and the sun on your face. It's the excitement of discovering a road less travelled. It's the unabashed natural beauty that stretches as far as the eye can see. At Breakaway cycle tours our dream is to share these experiences with the world!"
