Five ways to make 2018 the best year so far

Posted 18 Jan 2018

As we are now well into January, it’s likely many people have already forgotten their New Year’s resolutions.

A recent YouGov poll discovered that unsurprisingly exercising more and eating better were high on the list of common New Year's resolutions. Also featured were resolutions such as making new friends and getting a new hobby.

Our own Miles Porter, Head of Activities has said that, “The best way to keep a resolution is to share it with people and act while you’re still feeling inspired." We believe a cycling holiday is the perfect way to stick to many of these promises and good intentions, find out why below.

1. Provence

Exercise more

Instead of keeping the under-used gym membership, challenge yourself to cycling through Provence. Surely, a carpet of sweet purple lavender beats a hot exercise class?

2. Tuscany

Try something new

Try an E-Bike holiday. Enjoy grand views of Italy’s stunning valleys and quaint hill-top villages, with the benefit of an extra power boost up the rolling hills whenever required.

Spend more time with family

Due to the business of modern life, it's easy to miss spending time with loved ones. Enjoy visiting The Loire with family, home to easy cycle paths and spectacular châteaux.
