We're Committed to Preserving the Places We Love

Our Journey so Far

At Cycling for Softies, protecting the places we love is of the utmost importance to us. While cycling at its very heart is a sustainable activity, we know there’s more we can do to ensure our holidays have a positive impact on the places we visit. That’s why we have embarked on a journey with the experts at the ecollective, to find out more about the impact of our cycling holidays. We have worked together to measure our carbon emissions, in order to better understand how we can reduce them. Knowing the total footprint of our cycling holidays is just the beginning of this journey; we’ll be keeping you updated on our progress every step of the way, so check back here for further updates.
