Most Popular Cycling Holidays in 2015

Popular Cycling Holidays for 2015

Inspired by the Tour de France? Here are the details of our five most popular cycling holidays for 2015:

 

Cyclist's Coast to Coast - 8 Days

Wainwright’s “Coast to Coast” walk has long been a classic, and it was perhaps inevitable that cyclists would also look at interesting ways of crossing beautiful, scenic northern England. The original ‘C2C’ stretches from the lighthouse at Whitehaven on the Irish Sea to the lighthouse at Sunderland on the shores of the North Sea. Our Coast to Coast cycling holiday is a 144 mile itinerary combining the Cumbria Cycle Way Route and the popular C2C cycle route, offers a superb week's cycling amidst great scenery.  Find out more >>

 

 

Cycling the Turku Archipelago - 7 Days

Our self-guided cycling holiday in Finland makes the most of the favourable conditions, gentle terrain and frequent ferry services to provide a unique trip across the Turku Archipelago. The Turku Archipelago is one of Finland’s most stunning natural phenomena - 20,000 islands stretching out into the sea from the city of Turku in the southwest part of the country. Cycling a circular route around the main islands is made easy, and exciting by a system of local and free ferry services, most of them constantly going back and forth, acting like bridges.  Find out more >>

Cotswolds by Bike - 8 Days

This holiday is intended to appeal to those who want a gentle introduction to cycling in the English countryside, as the Cotswold’s are hilly rather than mountainous. A week of marvelous rides will take you through one of the most beautiful and historic parts of England. Honey coloured stone villages, open wolds, wooded valleys and Roman roads are the background to pretty villages, “wool” churches, famous gardens, a Roman villa and welcoming inns.
