Cycling


An excellent way to travel, cycling has become not only a means of transport but also a favourite activity for many fans of the outdoors, one which can even become a holiday adventure.

For those looking for a challenge, many cycle tours offer longer routes lasting a couple of weeks or more, varying in terrain and difficulty.

Mountain biking in particular has become increasingly popular, giving people the chance of an exhilarating ride over the rough ground of the hills. The activity has taken many places by storm, such as The Lake District and Scotland.
