Destination Sport Experiences acquire Sportive Breaks


Hundreds of UK cyclists will benefit thanks to an asset purchase agreement between Sportive Breaks Ltd and Destination Sport Experiences.


As you may or may not have recently heard Destination Sport ltd trading as Destination Sport Experiences acquired some of the assets of Sportive Breaks.

The pandemic put pressure on the travel industry with two years of lockdowns and international travel restrictions, so being part of a much larger UK travel group will strengthen the Sportive Breaks brand going forward offering benefits to customers.

Destination Sport Experiences will be using their operational and customer service excellence to improve the tours offered by Sportive Breaks. Sportive Breaks offered premium travel packages for cyclists looking to take part in Europe’s most prestigious cycling events, including Etape du Tour and Paris Roubaix, as well as organising international cycling breaks and weekenders.

Destination Sport Experiences are now able to offer Sportive Breaks customers even more top European cycling events and holidays and a wider range of premium experiences.


Si Teasdale, International Operations Manager at Destination Sport Experiences, said:

“We are delighted to be able to assist customers of Sportive Breaks and confirm their trips for 2022 and beyond. We take pride in the quality of our services and are excited to be able to move forward with new events and be able to offer even more incredible experiences to even more customers.”


We encourage athletes to ‘Do Something Extraordinary’ and take the stress out of organising travel and accommodation for worldwide cycling, running and triathlon events.

Sportive Breaks was launched in December 2015 to provide cycling holidays and tours for the growing market of UK cyclists who want to ride sportives across Europe, offering the chance to secure race entries and hotels within seconds of them becoming available.
