A cycling tour is something that the whole family can enjoy together!

A cycling holiday with the whole family can and should be a very rewarding experience for everyone. We've spent a lot of time finding and testing some beautiful cycling tours that are great for the whole family to enjoy.

The older kids love the challenge of navigating, exploring new areas, and helping the rest of the family to keep up.

Younger kids love the time spent with their parents, the satisfaction of being able to compete the cycle and the joy of making discoveries along the way.

Planning for a cycling trip with the kids.
Our Family-friendly trips have been created specifically for younger cyclists, and are generally suitable for children over the age of 7 years to cycle themselves. All Family-Friendly cycle tours have short, safe routes with plenty of diversions along the way, and provide accommodation appropriate for families.

The Ride Notes and Maps for these trips are invaluable, as they highlight all the facilities along the way, including: Shops, cafes and food outlets Public Toilets Playgrounds Amusements such as Water Slides, Putt-putt golf courses, etc

Our maps will show you what type of terrain you will be travelling on - whether bike path, suburban backstreet or quiet country road. Locations that have been identified as needing extra care (such as when crossing busy intersections) have been marked on the maps and / or Ride notes.

Any hills that you might encounter are shown on the Altitude graphs in your Ride Notes.

Cycling Equipment for families
For Family cycling trips, we can supply baby carriers, Tag-alongs and trail-gators and children's bikes. If your child is already cycling on a bicycle with gears, then generally we find that they are able to complete the family-friendly trips with no assistance. We recommend that in these cases, you bring your child’s bike rather than using one of ours, as this is what the child will be familiar with. Remember to pack their helmets as well!

For younger children, a tag-along or baby carrier is more suitable. We will discuss the best solution for your particular needs when you book with us.
