Cycling Holidays in the UK
With its dramatic mountains, scenic coastlines, picture-postcard villages and a vibrant food scene, the UK's (and its many unique regions) have a lot to offer on an independent cycling holiday! We have an extensive range of self-guided cycling tours at Macs that let you discover each of these distinctive regions your way!
If you want to experience "quintessential" England in all its glory, then slowly pedal the peaceful country lanes of the Cotswolds. Live like a local and visit its idyllic villages, stopping for a cream tea or a pub lunch in a rustic country inn. For the history buffs? Immerse yourself in Northern England's Roman heritage as you cycle alongside the famous Hadrian's Wall. Or head to the foot of England and see Cornwall classic coastline. Pedal between its iconic harbour towns sampling its indulgent Cornish ice cream and trying its freshly caught fish and chips.
If you want to embrace the call of the mountains, then head north of the border to Scotland. Explore its magnificent highlands by mountain bike, cycling coast to coast or along the popular Great Glen Cycleway. If you want to see its bold landscape but do things at a gentler pace, then try our inspiring lochs & glens tour. Or cycle our castle trail, which is perfect for those looking to spend their afternoons visiting its grand buildings and distilleries. Then relax in the evenings, toasting your day's cycling with a wee dram of whisky at one of the many village pubs! Slàinte!
