Most beautiful places to visit by bike

Summer is finally here and with it, a bout of great weather! As the British weather can be temperamental at the best of times, we should take full advantage of the days when the sun does shine, and this means getting out on our bikes to visit places like this:

Tuscany

 

If you’re planning on embarking on a cycling trip to a place you have never before encountered, it’s important to learn a little about the area beforehand. Tuscany is a beautiful place to visit by bike but it’s also extremely hilly.

If you’re an amateur cyclist or you’re a little on the unfit side, this may not be the best place to acquaint yourself with the art of travelling by two wheels. However, if you’re in training for an up and coming bike tour then it’s the perfect biking expedition.

Australia

 

The island of Tasmania in Australia is said to be one of the best places to embark on a cycling holiday. The roads are smooth, the traffic is on the low side and the views are incredible.

There are also a number of free campsites to consider which make it an ideal option for those who enjoy the great outdoors. 

The Dolomites in Italy


One of the preferred mountain ranges when it comes to biking, the Dolomites in Italy are particularly stunning. Aside from being able to fuel your riding abilities with scoops of gelato and shots of espresso, the 2,000+ meter peaks are in abundance, which means you can spend every day exploring a new road.

There’s even an annual road bicycle race undertaken on a single day in the region and known as the Maratona dles Dolomites (Dolomites Marathon).

Morocco 


Not an obvious choice, yet still a stunning one none the less. Zagora to Tafraoute in Morocco boasts towering sand dunes of some 300 metres high. Although there are a few challenging climbs to contend with, the surrounding scenery makes them all worthwhile.

Practical advice for cyclists of all ages 

No matter what your age, cycling can be a beneficial activity. Whether you’re just on your way to check out homes for sale in your area or are teaching young children to ride a bike, it’s important you always follow practical advice to maintain your safety.

  • Always wear the correct safety equipment when cycling
  • Never cycle a route which may be too difficult for you
  • Ensure friends and family know where you are if going out for a ride and take a mobile phone with you in case you need to contact somewhere in an emergency
  • Take regular breaks as necessary
  • Keep hydrated by taking a bottle of fresh water with you
  • Use sun-cream when cycling in hot conditions and ensure you wear suitable clothing and take regular rests in the shade
  • Know the rules of the road and ensure you abide by them, pulling over where possible to let traffic pass you if a queue is forming
