Interested in a cycling activities holiday? Is cycling one of you favourite past times or hobbies, then why not get out of the UK for a cycling holiday that will test your skill and ability.
Since the UK has such good biking areas - Scotland, The Lake District, Snowdonia and so on, you might think that its mad going abroad to mountain bike, but this could be the outdoor holiday that your looking for.
Most companies will be full equipped with up to date bikes but will be fully prepared for you to take your one if you want to. Some companies equipment could be superior to yours, so check before you go.
Safety Equipment is an essential - you will need to take a helmet (that complies with industry safety standards), gloves, cycling shorts for comfort and a good pair of proper cycling shoes with to use with either clips or clipless peddles. Other safety equipment can be used, and should be used if your doing more extreme riding - full face helmet, shin and knee guards and even body armour.
Remember that you should never ride alone, always tell people where you are going, and if possible, take a mobile phone with you in case you get into difficulties. You should know some basic cycle maintenance as well, how to change an inner tube, gear and brake alignment
