Enjoy a family cycling holiday this Summer
As you know we’re big on activity holidays at Compass Holidays and we’re true believers that a cycling tour can really help young families to explore further while experiencing quality family time.
If you are on the lookout for a family vacation where you can say goodbye to screens (and some sass) and wave hello to priceless family time, we would definitely recommend a two wheeled adventure this Summer.
Here’s why a cycling tour with the whole family is totally worth it:
Travelling with small children and/or tweens can often be stressful for parents especially when trying to round everyone up. The beauty of a cycling tour means that you can start creating a sense of independence and allow opportunities for exploration… knowing you’ll only be a few pedals behind.
Although they’re great fun, cycling holidays can be quite tiring for children and tweens. So you’ll probably find they’ll be asleep faster than you can open and pour the bottle of wine you’ve been saving for the evening (you’re on holiday too). All that’s left to do is sit back and enjoy a refreshing glass while watching the sunset with your partner.
We are all being encouraged to be as active as possible and be kinder to the environment. That’s why a cycling holiday is a fantastic place to start by offering daily activity and a full sense of achievement rather than a lazy week by the pool.
There’s a big wide world out there and it’s up to you as a parent to inspire your kids to want to see as much of it as possible. Although it's easy to get into the beach resort routine, you can explore mountains, lakes, countryside and much more when you switch the sun lounger for a bicycle.
Not only will it allow you to explore a new destination from a completely different perspective, a cycling holiday can provide lots of good, old-fashioned family fun. From creating scavenger hunts to playing conversation games like Eye Spy or Name Ten, there’s be lots of memories to be made and quality time to be had.
Ready for a family holiday on two wheels? We offer a variety of Cornish and Cotswolds cycling tours that can accommodate your budding cyclists.
