Sometimes I like to head off somewhere completely new with my bike and see what the riding is like there. I’ve been cycling in France in each of the previous two years but closer to home there are places like North Wales, Lancashire and Yorkshire where I’d previously never been. We all get bored riding in the same place so it’s good to broaden the horizons every now and again!

Think of the posts below as a sort of cycling tourism and ideas for your next trip somewhere new!
