Since 2014, when the Tour de France’s Grand Depart took place in Yorkshire, we’ve seen a great rise in the number of families looking to incorporate cycling into their holiday with us, encouraged by the hundreds of cycling events for under 16s that took place around the country that year and have continued since. In fact, a poll by Sustrans revealed that the Tour de France inspired a quarter of Britons to try cycling or cycle more often. We believe cycling is something the whole family can enjoy.
On our trips, we provide different sized bicycles for children so that everyone can get involved. With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite holidays that get you and your family onto two wheels.
How about mountain biking around an active volcano for a story to tell their friends about? The trail follows the forest and mountain paths where you’ll spot many different birds as well as howler monkeys and racoons.
