Planning a bicycle vacation?
As people over the age of 50 opt for more active and adventurous vacations, two-wheelers are becoming the vehicle many are choosing to see the world, both here and abroad.
A recent travel segment on Sky News dubbed bicycle vacations “the new golf.”
Touring by bicycle is easier on aging joints than jogging, lets riders cover greater distances than walking and allows for a more intimate, up-close experience than riding in cars, buses or trains.
Environmentally-friendly, this mode of transport offsets vacation weight gain with healthy exercise. Its broad appeal extends to solo travelers, couples, friends and multigenerational groups.
