Find & rent bikes from the best independent bike shops in Europe using BICILET Bike Rental.
You don’t have to be on a specific “cycling holiday” to enjoy the benefits of travelling on two wheels on holiday. Cycling could - and should! - be incorporated into any holiday. There are a number of reasons why we think you should get pedalling...
Really enjoy the local food & drink - we love combining culinary tours with cycling. What better way to earn your dinner, or that drink at the end of the day, than taking in a country on bike? Explore the fields / fishing ports / vineyards at your own pace, before stopping off at a great restaurant to enjoy the local cuisine. Move around different vineyards with ease (but maybe take it easy on the wine…), all the while enjoying the glorious outdoors, and making sure you deserve that extra indulgence.
Keep fit! Cycling is a great way to keep fit (we all know what holidays can do to us...) and still have an adventure (or would you rather while away the hours in a hotel gym?). And for the enthusiastic cyclist / wannabe-pro, a specific cycling training camp – or a couple of hours in the morning when travelling with your non-cycling family / friends – is a great way to make the most of what the sport has to offer by exploring another country.
Take part in organised / mass-participation events. This is probably one for the more enthusiastic cyclist, but why not get involved with one of the many organised cycling events? Climb the mountains of the Tour de France in the L'Etape du Tour or the Marmotte, or ride the route of the Tour of Flanders / Paris-Roubaix the day before watching the Pros cover the same roads. These events are a fantastic experience, and are tailor-made for those who like to achieve something on their travels.
Why do you like to cycle? Whatever your reason, find an area and a bike that suits you with BICILET Bike Rental, and enjoy!
We’ll be doing longer posts on each of the above, bringing in our own experiences as well as those of our happy customers.
We’ll also do a series highlighting possible routes you can explore. Have some ideas? Let us know!
