31 Mar , 2017  

The world looks better from the seat of a bicycle. There’s no better way to watch the world go by than gliding along on two wheels, and travel experiences don’t get much better.

If the 200th birthday of the bike in 2017 isn’t enough inspiration for you to get on that saddle, the Macs Bike team have some top suggestions for all kinds of cyclist, from absolute beginner to regular riders…

Novice Riders…

Bike & Boat by the Loire

Combine a cycle tour with a river cruise along the Loire.

Novices can build confidence on a bike & boat trip. Sancerre & cycling on this Loire Valley by Bike & Boat trip is the perfect format for beginners, with flat riverside cycling, plus a tour leader to help you navigate & enjoy.

For Families…

Stop for a picnic by the lake.

Stop for a picnic by the lake.

Something for all ages, introduce the family to three European countries on one easy-going cycling trip, our Lake Constance Family Cycling Adventure.

For Occasional Cyclists…

Classic Provence is best seen by bike.

Lavender scented country lanes lead to pretty hilltop villages. Invigorating but not strenuous – pedalling Provence’s Luberon Valley is perfect for leisure cyclists.

For the Weekend…

England’s fine scenery, cycling coast to coast.

Cycling coast to coast on England’s famous C2C is the ideal way to take on a weekend challenge of 2-4 cycling days.

For Progressing…

Volcanic landscapes and glorious coastal views.

A super challenge as a first road cycling adventure (read Emma’s blog), or great for avid road cyclists looking for a mid-level not-too-hardcore week in the sun, try road cycling the volcanoes and coasts of Lanzarote.

For Roadies…

Taking on the tarmac in Catalonia

Graded challenging, take on famous climbs & passes on your way from the Mediterranean to the Pyrenees, enjoying the wonderful character of Catalonia on this coasts & cols tour.

I have been a member of the Macs Adventure team since March 2013, and since joining my travel wish-list has developed ten-fold! Glasgow is my home, and a wonderful city to live in, however I love nothing more than enjoying the access to the Scottish countryside on my doorstep.
