As we’ve said here many times before, cycling is booming, and the number of people interested in either basing their holiday around cycling, or incorporating it within their trip, is on the increase. And what’s interesting, is that there are an almost infinite number of possible themes and concepts to base a cycling tour around.
If you fancy going from Lands End to John O Groats, there are companies that will take all the hassle out of it for you. It’s the same if you want to go coast to coast. But every area of the UK and Europe has interesting alternatives. How about a tour taking in the three UK stages of the 2014 Tour De France for example, or a tour around a particular county or region? Or maybe you could organise a tour that combines cycling with another interest like football, golf, whisky, popular music, nature or whatever.
You might think that people can organise a lot of this themselves, which they can. But a supported tour would make things easier, safer and ultimately, more enjoyable for everyone.
