An exhilarating mix of speed, fresh air and freedom combine to make a cycling holiday a heady way of enjoying the country while keeping fit at the same time. Our huge variety of cycle paths cover everything from forest rides to canal towpaths and traffic-free trails. There is cycle touring to suit everyone – the serious pedallers who pursue mountain biking and the more sedate leisure cyclists. Just getting started or looking to push yourself further? Join a local cycling club, or train for a race and don’t forget to take advantage of local velodromes and speedway tracks.
