Where to ride

Family cycling holidays

One of our very favourite things is going on a family cycling holiday – unfortunately life / school / work gets in the way most of the time!  If you’re thinking about cycling on your holidays, you don’t need to make it too complicated – a single day’s riding is how we started.

Over the years we’ve built up to doing trips of up to a month away – but we always drive or take the train somewhere and camp and then ride from the campsite.

Some of our Cycle Sprog contributors prefer to leave the car at home and carry all their kit with them – and thankfully they’ve written up their adventures to help anyone else who wants to do similar.

Enjoy your holiday!
