#CyclingAdventures with Inntravel


We were recently asked to take part in a #CyclingAdventures campaign with Inntravel. As we love to be outdoors, we were keen to take part and read more about what Inntravel do. Inntravel are a Slow Holiday company that offers cycling holidays in Europe. They have something for all 'amateur' cyclists. Not only do they offer this to 'amateur' cyclists, but very occasional cyclists can also enjoy a cycling holiday with them too. Inntravel arranges the hire of a high-quality bike and gives you a detailed map of the routes you can go from one hotel to the other. There are a few routes you can pick from each day. There is no need to worry about luggage, as your luggage will be transported from one hotel to the next.

The cycle holidays are for individuals, so you are free to pick on which route is suggested to you each day. I find when you're in a group, you can miss out on a lot of things because everyone has different interests and you may miss out on the things you want to do because the others want to do something else. As it's a cycling holiday for individuals, it makes it that little better. Inntravel carefully plans out all their holiday routes. They make sure all their routes are on quiet roads and country lanes as well as being interesting and enjoyable routes with stunning views. Each route has been tried and tested.

Personally, I would love this kind of holiday. I think it's perfect for having that little break every parent deserves. Cycling down planned routes from hotel to hotel, with no worries of carrying your luggage, and enjoying the beautiful sceneries is definitely my cup of tea. Inntravel wanted us to visit our local cycling route, and it's a route we take a lot. In fact, our closest cycling track is literally two minutes from us. That's one of our reasons why we bought this house. We take the route very often, especially when the weather is nice. The girls wanted to take turns on their bike and scooter, so that's what they took with them when we went on our route. The cycling track is a long track that goes on for miles. With the kids, we are happy to go for around 5 miles in total.


The day we decided to go down on our local cycle route the weather was really hot and so we decided not to go too far from home. One one side of the cycle track is a busy main road but as you go further along it gets hidden by all the trees, so it's a lot more peaceful. On the opposite side, there's stunning scenery to see as your cycling or walking. Many people went past us, a few on their bikes, walking and others running. The girls always enjoy themselves when they go on the cycling route, they feel free as they're able to run ahead without any danger such as cars.

We tried learning Elliw to ride a bike a few months ago, a few times but she never got the hang of it. We decided we would take this opportunity to try and learn her again. She's taken much longer to learn that what Mia did but I'm not comparing as each child is different. We kept encouraging her that she was doing well and eventually she did it! She actually rode a bike - for the first time. She actually pushed the pedals the right way instead of backward. She couldn't do it for a long time, but she did it. Now we are just going to take her for a bit on the weekends until she can do it properly.

  1. Looks like a lovely day out. A cycling holiday is not my idea of fun, but having the luggage transported while you make your way between hotels yourself is a great idea. That would work for walkers too which would be more up my street. #ThatFridayLinky
