Nothing’s more exhilarating than a cycling holiday where you discover new landscapes on two wheels. Taking things at your own pace as you cycle around, you can stop off when you find a small undiscovered village or you can spend the afternoon strolling around a stunning vineyard. The possibilities really are endless when you choose this type of holiday and there are plenty of
destinations for you to pick from.
With companies like Exodus Travels Limited offering some great cycle holidays, here are just three of the most picturesque locations you’ll find:
Ride the Paths of PortugalWhen you embark on a cycling tour of Portugal you’ll discover marinas, lighthouses, sand dunes and beaches, with coastal routes taking in Praia de Mira, Aveiro, Furadouro and Porto. You could also take a journey along the Douro River where you’ll find boats queuing up along the quay and plenty of wildlife, including kingfishers, purple herons and flamingos.
Saddle Up in SardiniaTours around Italy’s Sardinia will have you enjoying the breath-taking sights of Narcao, St PietroIsland and Nebida, to name a few. You can enjoy casual bike rides along the white sandy beaches or indulge in some wine tasting in the south. And don’t forget to take in the village of Trattalias, deemed the “ghost village” which was abandoned in the 19th Century when the newly erected dam started leaking. This eerie location is definitely a must-see if you’re taking the trip to Sardinia.
Cycle Around Côtes du VentouxIf you’ve always wanted to visit France and its famous vineyards, now’s your chance with a cycling holiday to the Côtes du Ventoux. Here you’ll be able to cycle around the roads of Mt Ventoux, where the most recent Tour de France finished; before heading to other stunning locations including Beaumes-de-Venise, where Muscat wine is famous and Aubignan, a medieval village where you’ll find some ancient ramparts from the 14th Century.
This location is also great for the more avid of cyclists as Mt Ventoux’s gateway, Mazan, offers a wonderful challenge as well as jaw-dropping scenery. But if you’d prefer to relax and unwind with a more leisurely tour, you may be better opting for the village of Caromb, where you’ll find a magnificent fountain, watchtower and church, and the vineyards of Beaumes-de-Venise where you’ll also find an olive oil museum.
