Pump up interest for cycling trips with these new breaks

With bike sales in the UK booming since lockdown, clients are increasingly likely to seek a holiday that allows them to spend time on two wheels while staying safe outdoors. Abra Dunsby rounds up three new options for 2021

For “bubble” travellers: North Coast 500, Scotland

Due to Covid-19 Wilderness Scotland has seen an increase in enquiries for travel within social bubbles, which has led to a new Self-Guided+ cycling range.


Stevie Christie, head of adventure at Wilderness Scotland, says this option combines “the best of both worlds – the flexibility of start times and routes, the ability [for clients] to travel at their own pace within their bubble and the reassurance of a guide acting as a soigneur”.

Included in the new range is the North Coast 500, which sees clients covering 500 miles in a week, immersing themselves in the Highlands, from the ancient mountains of Torridon to the wild coasts of Assynt. Highlights include the “wee mad road”, a winding stretch squeezed between the mountains and the sea that ends at Lochinver’s famous pie shop.

Book it: Prices start from £1,295pp based on two sharing, including six nights’ B&B, transfers, a soigneur and bike hire.
