Cycling Holidays in England

Our self guided cycling holidays in England are a great way to discover the country's charming countryside and rich history. At Macs Adventure we'll make your cycling holiday hassle-free by arranging your accommodation and baggage transfers, and providing you with a map and route notes to help you along the way. For more inspiration and information download our free guide to cycling holidays.

Pedal through England's varied landscapes; from the beautifully rugged Cornish coast, to charming lanes in the Cotswolds, along the historical Hadrian's Wall and from the dramatic Lake District in the west to Tynemouth on the east on the national C2C cycle route. Stop off for cream teas and delicious fresh seafood in Cornwall, or settle into a cosy country pub in the Cotswolds after a day on the road soaking up the scenery. A Macs Adventure cycling holiday in England is the perfect way to see as much as possible while not losing out on the great experiences you get when traveling under your own steam (or pedal) power.

    Best Time to Visit England?

    One of the many reasons to visit England is that each season brings its own unique charm. Although the UK isn't known for wonderful weather, in general it doesn’t experience extremes during summer or winter. Overall, spring (late March to early June) and autumn (September to October) are the best times to visit, when there is more chance of warm and dry weather. 

    Tip: You can always take shelter from the rain in a cosy country pub or cafe and enjoy warm scones with jam and cream.

     

    Spring in England 

    March is when you’ll start to spot the first signs of spring, and with that comes an abundance of beautiful spring flowers like daffodils and bluebells. In England, April is known for its “April showers”, but the good news is that April is no longer as chilly and the sun is on its way. In May, the average temperature takes its highest rise yet (around 14 degrees), with slightly less rain predicted too. There are two bank holidays in England alongside a half-term break for schools, meaning that family activities across the country are at a high.  

    Tip: This is the perfect time for Windermere on Two Wheels. As a well-known National Park the Lake District becomes busy in summer. Experience it in its best form!

     

    Summer in England

    June is a wonderful time to visit with a higher average temperature than days of rainfall - yay!  In July and August holidays to England are at their peak, meaning travel prices are on the rise (top tip: book early for Summer). England’s beautiful coastal areas are perfect for making the most of the better weather, and Cornwall’s beaches prove popular with those traveling within the country as well as those visiting. Average daily temperatures are around 15 degrees. 

    Tip: This is a great time for our Classic Cornwall Cycling trip, unlike other parts of England it shouldn’t be too hot and you'll have the gentle breeze off the coast. You will need to book early though!

     

    Autumn in England

    Temperatures begin to fall again, but the English countryside transforms into a photographer’s dream in autumn. Expect landscapes of yellow, red and orange from September to Octoberas entire forests change the colours of their leaves. For a quintessential British experience, visit a country pub on a chilly day. Seek out a traditional pub with an open fireplace and get cosy by the fire as you enjoy a pint of local ale and a hearty meal. Average temperatures in September are around 17 degrees, and 13 degrees in October.  

    Tip: A great time to enjoy the Cotswolds which passes through charming English countryside, enchanting villages and traditional country pubs.
