Cycling holidays. You can't beat them.
Whizzing around Girona on a warm day? Wonderful. Exploring the slopes and coasts of the Algarve? Bliss. A whistle-stop tour of Tuscany? Yes, yes please and yes again.
These cycling hotspots, however, come with a hefty drawback. For UK cyclists, doing Girona or tackling Tuscany means international travel. And international travel means faff – especially when you've got two wheels in tow.
Of course, it would all be different if the UK had a world-class cycling destination to call its own. We could travel light, leave our passports at home and avoid the absurd hassle that comes with flying avec vélo.
