Exploring by bike

Pop to the shops, explore your local lanes or head off on a freewheeling holiday.

Cycling is a great way to keep fit, save money and help cut traffic – just a few of the benefits of bikes. Discover our top tips for enjoying days out by bike.


  1. Cycling holidays

    You could set off from your door to explore the epic National Cycle Network. Or take your bike on the train to the holiday spot of your choice, if you book ahead.

    If you’d prefer to let someone else sort out the route and the rooms, why not book a self-guided cycling holiday from people like Open Road Open Skies, Contours, or Skedaddle? Or if you feel like a relaxing option, then National Forest E-Bike Holidays could be just the thing.

    For cycle-friendly accommodation try Cyclists Welcome, YHA and Premier Inn (who let you keep your bike in your room!).
