With some amazing cycling adventures guaranteed for the start of 2017, you’re just a stone’s throw away from an epic two-wheeled experience in an extraordinary corner of the world. Take a look at what we have departing for your chance to escape for fun on the bikes…
1. Trip: Lake Distict, Chile & Argentina
We say: A Skedaddle classic…for a very good reason! The scenery you’ll explore is mind-blowingly beautiful and our journey departing mid-January is the perfect way to start your year on a high.
2. Trip: Mountains and Coast, Vietnam
We say: For a varied adventure, Vietnam has it all. Vibrant local culture, heavenly coastline and history to boot, this city-to-city tour is packed full of sights and gives a great all-round insight into this destination.
3. Trip: Cuban Revolutions, Cuba
We say: With spaces selling like hotcakes, you’ll have to be quick if you want to join our two-week journey in this emerging destination! This two-week trip is a great chance to explore some of the island’s lesser-known natural features.
4. Trip: Classic Kerala, India
We say: Let the lush and tropical India you’ve imaged come to life in Kerala. This magical destination sees you cycling alongside hilltop tea plantations, relaxing on a rice boat on the famous backwaters and will help you feel a million miles away from the cold!
