3 June is World Bicycle Day – a time to celebrate transport on 2 wheels. We’re all being encouraged to cycle to work where possible these days – great for the environment and our own health.
Why not take a cycling holiday?
In Europe, you can cycle along the Dalmatian Coast in Croatia. A 7 day trip will take you from Split in the north of the country to the city of Dubrovnik. Island hop along the coast taking in Hvar and Korcula. Spain, France and Italy are well known to professional cyclists, but you too can cycle the same routes as them or lesser known tracks. Or how about a cycling trip in the Baltic States, Romania or Albania. Even Turkey has great cycle routes.
In Asia, the cycle is a common form of transport – so you won’t be out of place cycling through Kerala in India. There are huge numbers of cyclists in Vietnam and its a great way to explore the country. But have you thought about cycling in Georgia or Sri Lanka or Japan or South Korea.
In Africa, cycle across Morocco from the Atlas Mountains to the Sahara or from Cape Town through the Winelands and Garden Route to the southernmost point of the continent.
Cuba is a huge island and without too much public transport, cycling is common and a wonderful way to explore the island.
In Central America, you can cycle through Nicaragua and Costa Rica to the Panama Canal. Or along the Yucatan Peninsular in Mexico – just watching all those tourists in the resorts who aren’t taking advantage of the spectacular countryside.
All these are guided trips, with a tour leader to ensure you get the most out of your journey.
