A two-wheeled treat in Tuscany

Tuscany…the very word conjures up images of idyllic wheat fields and cypress lined horizons, a truly magical place to explore on two wheels! Need more convincing? Check out what past cyclists who joined us to explore the region, have to say:

Rewarding riding experiences…
Excellent cycling, beautiful scenery and great company. There were a few cheeky climbs but the rewards were amazing views, great descents and a big sense of achievement.’ Jolene, Hampshire

Local support…
‘Our tour leaders worked hard to ensure everyone was happy and went out of the way to deliver the riding we expected. They had a vast wealth of historical and local knowledge too!’ Nick, Wiltshire

An authentic insight…
‘The routes took us through some fantastic countryside and we stayed in a variety of towns that gave us a great experience of what Tuscany has to offer.’ Alison, Northamptonshire

Want to escape to Tuscany for yourself? This region is a great destination to explore post-summer, when the harvest is in full swing. For those keen, we have a fantastic guided cycling holiday Taste of Tuscany, or for those who would prefer to self guide&n bsp;we recommend cycling from Pisa to Florence.

Bike the best of Britain this year

Quiet country lanes … check.
Beautiful, historic architecture… check.
Lush, green rolling scenery…. check.

If all of the above are key ingredients of your dream cycling holiday, we have some good news…all of this can be found right here in the United Kingdom:

We say…
“I’m continually amazed by the unspoilt beauty of the UK and the adventures that can be found right here on our very doorstep. Yes, Europe may have some pretty nice weather to tempt you further afield, but when you’ve got lush, rolling landscapes bursting with life and colour, there’s no place I’d rather be!”Alison, UK Product Manager

Trip Pick: The Cotswolds
For a true taste of ‘quintessential England’ our two-wheeled trip in the Cotswolds really is perfect. Picture-postcard towns and villages accompany idyllic countryside riding, and all this can be enjoyed from your stunning base at HF Holiday Country House, Harrington House.

Customer Story: A Coastal Retreat in Northumberland

Taking in the view at historic Holy Island…

We’ve been raving about the Northumberland Coast for years, which comes complete with dramatic castles and some of the finest beaches in the land.  Cyclist Vicki Tyler Jones recently took on our guided Alnmouth cycling holiday and sent us in some lovely snaps from her travels along the coast. See below for an insight into her trip away:

 ‘A very enjoyable and memorable cycling short break based at Alnmouth – not all about the cycling – easy to take my bike on the train direct to Alnmouth station – high standard of accommodation and good food at Nether Grange with a Northumbrian pipe workshop thrown in too! – cycling along quiet lanes in lovely countryside and unspoilt coastline with great leaders – picnic stops along the way were a highlight – good cycling, good food, good company in beautiful Northumberland – what more can you ask for?Vicki Tyler Jones

Lovely quiet cycling routes along pretty, remote lanes…

Nether Grange occupies a wonderful seaside location and makes an excellent base for exploring the area.

More castle exploring as you pass by the dramatic ruins of Dunstanburgh 

A great insight into local fishing communities…

Big grins to see off a fantastic trip!
