Bicycle Touring


If you’re looking for an adventure that doesn’t cost the earth, bike touring, a self-supported break on two wheels lasting hours, days, weeks, months or even years, could be the answer. Bike touring not only provides a physical challenge, it tests your mental fortitude and can be very sociable if you do it with friends.

While cycling around on a touring bike (a must-have if you want bike panniers and a comfy cycling position), you’ll learn the geography of your surroundings, not to mention how to read a map and travel from place-to-place unaided.

Want to head overseas? Ferry tours are particularly purse-friendly. Unlike planes, ferries don’t charge foot passengers extra for taking a bike. Whether you go from Portsmouth to the Isle of Wight, from Harwich to Holland, or from Dover to Calais, biking to a boat expands the distance you can cover under your own steam.
