Self guided bike tours

Self guided bike tours in Croatia

Croatian self guided bike tours are carefully designed by Meridien Ten for those who want to cycle at their own pace, who want to travel at dates they prefer and who do not want to carry their own luggage while accommodation, daily logistics, ferries and other transfers are taken care of.
With the road book and detailed maps provided, you will get insider access to the best bike routes, beautiful bays and beaches, restaurants, galleries, museums, night life, wine cellars and other places of interest, which are on your bike path!

Why do you want to choose Meridien Ten’s self guided bike tour?

We are based in Split, Croatia and we cycle and explore Croatia 12 months per year, so we can say we have the local knowledge and will share it with you.With our know-how we offer unique and quality self guided tours. On these trips, you will be riding without the guide, but Merdien Ten is always “behind the scenes”, making sure logistics run smoothly and offer 24/7 support.

One of Meridien Ten’s missions is to present local culture and customs while offering outdoor activities. 

Save yourself a lot of time spent on research, choose on of our self guided bike tours, leave your luggage behind and enjoy the ride!

Further developments of self guided bike tours (tailor made)?

Another Meridien Ten specialty is development of tailor made self guided bike tours. Duration of your holiday, extra services on tours, type of accommodation (sail boat, yacht, hotel, luxury villa or cosy B&B) and types of transport between the islands can be combined to create unique experience during your Croatian holiday.
Since we are not a big company or booking engine site, your early inquiries for tailor made tours are much appreciated
Meridien Ten is a small company and our stuff is extremely busy during the season so there might not be time to develop tours as per your requests or there might not be availability. Our busiest season is during months May, June, September and October.

If you like our self guided trips, but the price is not in your holiday budget, please let us! We can always lower some of the costs; exclude luggage shuttles, provide alternative ways of transportation between the islands.

Basically, we can customize your self-guided trip! 

 

What’s included?

Orientation meeting

by Meridien Ten representative. Get the full explanation of tour logistics, daily bike rides, historical and general description of area visited. Local, good wine and dine suggestions. All of this is suggested based on your preferences.

Bike fitting

During the bike fitting we make sure bikes are fitted correctly, and that you are aware how to use the brakes, gears etc. As we have 6 different frame sizes, adjustable stems on each bike, different seats (soft, gel, racing-stiff, all-around) and different type of pedals we are sure we can fit our bikes to work well for you.

Accommodation

On all of our self guided tours accommodation is taken care of. Most of these trips have option for 3*, 4* or 5* accommodation. If it is not high tourist season, we might be able to provide cheaper b&b. If there is a tour you like but prefer different accommodation, let us know and we can customize the tour for you.

Quality bike rental

Road, Hybrid, Tandem and children bikes are available for our self guided trips.
Our bikes are serviced regularly and inspected always before they leave our base in Split. We are proud that our apparel and bikes are in top condition and we are used to hear from people by the end of the trip how bikes where working perfectly. From pedals you can choose either flat or toe cage pedals, or bring your own SPD or similar pedals. We do have helmets for you, but prefer if you bring your own.

Luggage transfer

All you have to do is pack and unpack your luggage when changing the hotels. The rest is on us.

Road book with detailed cycling maps and route descriptions

Each year we put a lot of effort in development of our maps. We are continuously scouting for new roads!  We have created route description ourselves, meaning that we have actually covered every inch of the trail, every bump on the route. The result is a clearly written set of route descriptions that guide you, km by km, along the trail, and supply you with further information as well (points of interest, refreshments, local restaurants etc.).

Something extra you will receive on our self guided tour is detailed day description of various sights and natural wonders you will find along the cycling path ; whether it is historical site, gourmet restaurant,  local wine cellar, amazing beach, art gallery or similar, we will point that out for you!
