Do go on a cycling vacation in Europe if…
… you like being active outdoors. Let’s face it, this is an activity break so don’t expect to be lazing about with a copy of the latest Dan Brown all day, every day.
… you’re looking forward to learning. Even self guided cycling vacations give you a step up from pure independence with excellent maps and route notes to help you find out more as you travel.
… ‘be prepared’ is still your motto. Sudden storms, flat tyres, sheep in the road; if you can keep smiling as you unpack your mac or puncture repair kit then a cycling vacation’s for you.
… you can handle a few raised eyebrows. Turning up at a remote village on two wheels can be quite the event for local people so be prepared to chat bikes, distances and what’s in your saddle bags.
