Mountain bike style with 11” to 14” frames and derailleur gears. Suitable for children aged 7 to 11 years old.
For children who are not yet independent cyclists
Tag-along bikes. Please ensure that an adult pulling a tag-along is a competent cyclist.
For the youngest children
Baby and toddler seats are available.
E-Bikes are available at a supplement on many of our holidays. E-Bikes use a strong, rechargeable lithium battery mounted behind the seat tube or over the back wheel to assist pedal movement. Pedalling effort is still required but is much reduced, especially on hill climbs if the maximum assistance setting is selected. The extra weight of the E-Bike is more than offset by the benefits from pedal assistance.
The use of an E-Bike can bring holidays within your range which you might otherwise consider too difficult.
Standard equipment issued with bicycles :
Puncture repair kit & spanners
On cycling days you carry with you only those items you need during the day. Your main luggage is moved by us each time you change hotel.
When you book we shall ask you for your 'Cycling Measurements' - height and inside leg - so we can have the right sized bike ready for you at the start of your holiday.
Can I Take my Own Bike Please?
On most of our holidays this may not be practical due to the difficulties of transporting a bicycle by air or rail. However, if you want to use your own bike we will reduce your holiday cost to reflect this - just ask when booking.
