Mountain Biking Holiday – Eco-Friendly alternative.

 The popularity of a Mountain Biking Holiday is on the increase. As more and more people turn their attention to the environment and try to do ‘their bit’ from a personal level many are turning to cycling as an eco-friendly alternative. The number of bike sales worldwide is rising at an increased level and not just on an individual basis, whole families are sharing and using it as a way to spend more quality time together.

Cycling can be split into many different disciplines; road, triathlon, mountain, commuting, BMX, downhill, tandem. Indeed, many variations to suit many different types of people and locations.
From a holiday point of view Mountain Biking and Road Cycling offer the widest choice.

Mountain; from gently rolling back country hills, to wilderness nature parks, the mountainous terrain of New Zealand’s South island, or the volcanic slopes of Hawaii. There is sure to be a tour and a terrain to suit everyone.

Road; follow the route of the famous races such as the Tour de France, the Giro d’Italia or the Vuelta a Espana. Take in a tour of the Southern Cape Vineyards or cycle the Great Ocean Road in Australia. Again, there will be a tour and an area to suit everyone.

So what are you waiting for? Get out there, get some exercise, breathe the fresh air and help do your bit for the environment.
