Family Cycling Holidays

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

Our family itineraries have easy cycling, lots of cycle paths, hotel pools, flexible eating arrangements and plenty to see and do nearby.

Family Favourite cycling holidays work well for younger children, grumpy teenagers, frazzled parents and even apprehensive grandparents.

Guest Review

"The Cycling for Softies formula suits not only the Pickering family but also the extended Pickering family - spouses of children now joining the team."
