Cycling Holidays with Children

Family cycling tours in Europe

You’ll never hear ‘Are we nearly there yet?’ on a Softies family cycling holiday.

Elbow out all thoughts of school reports. Instead, bask in the sunshine, quibble over the map and issue a collective 'Wheeeee' as you whizz down the hills.

A Cycling for Softies family cycling holiday involves lots of cycle paths, hotel pools, flexible eating arrangements and plenty to see and do in the local area.

One of our most popular family cycling holidays is our single centre tour in the Loire Valley. With one base for your whole stay and easy cycling tours suitable for all ages, this is a great choice.

Our family cycling holidays work well for younger children, teenagers, parents and even grandparents too. To find out more please contact our cycle experts who are on hand to discuss your requirements.
