Great Britain is home to some wonderful landscapes, ranging from amazing coastal regions to magnificent hills and plains. For cyclists, the many off-road and other routes that can be explored are a welcome addition to the attractions across the UK, and if you enjoy the outdoors on a bike, you’re in one of the best places in Europe. With exciting forest routes – check out the magnificent cycle paths through Kielder Forest close to the Scottish Borders – and fine National Parks, you can choose to explore Britain using dedicated paths, or ride the roads to and from wherever you want to be.
Cycling is a great way of getting to see parts of the scenery that you would miss in a car or other form of transport, and it’s also a fun family pastime. Taking the children out on a ride on their mountain bikes, for example, couldn’t be more fun, and it gets them exercise and fresh air, too. Biking holidays in the UK are becoming more popular than ever, and with many families choosing the ‘staycation’ instead of traveling abroad, it might be something you want to consider even if cycling is not a regular pastime of yours.
