If your kids have a new or old penchant for pedal power, why not try a family cycling holiday? Children don’t even have to be old enough to ride themselves – most cycling holiday providers and bike-hire companies will furnish you with child-seats, trailers and sometimes even tandems.

You don’t have to stray far from home to enjoy a cycling break – Sustrans, Britain’s leading sustainable transport charity, coordinates the National Cycle Network with its more than 15,000km of cycle and walking routes on traffic-free paths and quiet lanes and roads around the UK. Bike hire is widely available all over the country, including at holiday parks and holiday villages, which can be a great, secure environment in which to get started with younger kids. Some parks even offer cycle training for tots.

Many of our further-flung family activity and adventure holidays also include some cycling as part of their itinerary, meaning you can enjoy the freedom of two wheels in destinations as diverse as Gozo and the Galapagos Islands.
