Holiday Planning - our guide to getting the most out of that spare day or spare days you can commit to your cycling holiday.

 


 

By now, Christmas is a distant memory, and although Blue Monday has passed, the weather outside is still raw, and the days are still short.

 If you are anything like our households, thoughts have turned to holidays. You probably dream of many cycling holidays. Two weeks in the hilly Alps, a week in warm Girona, ten days in the cycling paradise that is Mallorca and then a quick trip to Tuscany riding round the vineyards .

But back in the real world, you probably only have twenty to twenty five days holiday a year. Combine this with your prior work commitments, meetings and business trips.  Add in your existing holiday commitments; weddings, birthdays, holidays with kids, holidays with non-cycling partners, and your cycling holiday time starts looking very small. But don't fear; below is our guide to getting the most out of that spare day or spare days you can commit to your cycling holiday.

 

1. Book early for the best prices and widest range of hotel options.

 

2. Take your precious few bike holiday days, book ended against a weekend, or better still a bank holiday.

 

3. Look to fly out after work, or early doors, to get the maximum amount of pedalling time in.

 

4. See if you can combine a cycling trip, with a business trip. Have a business trip to Paris? Jump on the train and go ride Ventoux at the weekend.

 

5. Get the brownie points in early. Fix that guttering, look after your kids and walk the dog. It's much easier to negotiate time away from real life and the better half with a few brownie points in the bank!

 

6. Head for a stay-cation to reduce traveling time and maximise pedalling time. We know some great routes and cycling friendly Hotels in the UK.

 

7. It's quality of riding, not quantity that's important. Speak to our experts for advice and tips!

 

If all else fails. Just remember what the great Eddy Merckx said. "Ride as much, or as little, as long, or as short as you feel. But ride"
