Cycling Holidays, Routes & Tours

One of the best ways to explore the South East of England is by bicycle. Not only do you get to meet the locals and experience the beautiful cities and countryside first hand, but you get some wonderful fresh air and healthy exercise at the same time. Stops at a Great Country Pub for that ever needed sustenance are guilt free! The network of traffic free cycle paths, bridleways and quiet country lanes all contribute to literally 100s of miles of great cycling routes.

There are any number of ways to enjoy the cycling experience. For families wanting a quiet day out with the children the traffic free cycle routes provide a safe haven for youngsters just learning to ride. The ride through Windsor Great Park has the added bonus of spectacular views of Windsor Castle. For some history, take the Tudor Trail from Tonbridge to Hever Castle in Kent. On the Isle of Wight the traffic free trail from Cowes to Sandown on the Isle of Wight provides a great (non-hilly) way to explore the island and its coastline.

For the off road enthusiast the South Downs Way National Park, linking the 100 miles from Winchester to Eastbourne on the south coast, provides a more than challenging ride. Alternatively, why not experience the New Forest National Park with its unique landscape that has been shaped over the centuries by grazing ponies, cattle and pigs which roam free. The New Forest has a wealth of cycle routes for all ages and abilities and free parking nearby.

For the touring road cyclist, there is never any need to ride on a busy main road and the whole region can be explored using the maze of quiet country lanes.

For best results, contact one of the cycle touring companies below and they will give expert advice on the routes most suited to you. Also they will give you much needed advice on the type of equipment you might need that is most suited to the type of terrain you will encounter. If you want to eliminate any concerns about traffic and getting lost then request a guided tour. There is a whole world of enchantment out there waiting to be explored. Give it a go!
