Holiday with a bit of biking
The Mrs and I are planning on going on a nice holiday next year, somewhere warm after only having a few days in wet Wales this year due to redundancy.
We want somewhere we can spend some time chilling out, lots of nice places to eat but also some good walking and – ideally – somewhere I can hire a bike (and maybe guide) for a day or two and get some proper riding in.
We’re looking at places like Lake Garda or Tenerife as possibilities. Needs to be somewhere we can get away from the tourist rat race and do our own thing a bit.
Any suggestions?Posted 4 years agodavidisaacsMember
Hi, check us out on http://www.bikingandalucia.com, we offer flexibility ie you can rent one of our houses and use our services (guiding, bike hire etc) as and when you wish. There is plenty to do in the Sierra Nevada and Granada which are close by. We have a swimming pool and only 30 minutes from the beach. Also we have the best climate in mainland Europe.Posted 4 years ago
Iceland… Now there’s a thought. We were thinking somewhere warm, but it doesn’t have to be I guess!

davidisaacs – will check out the site.
Mackem – had actually thought of BasqueMTB too, heard amazing things about the food near there (and the trails!).Ecky-ThumpMember
I can thoroughly recommend Garda.Posted 4 years ago
Outdoorsy stuff is all at the North end of the lake. Torbole is a good base.
Iceland gets my vote. Great country with stunning views – most of the women are jaw dropingly gorgeous. You can hire bikes at Myvatyn and cycle all over the area, which is fun. Did it ten years ago, and still wince at the cost, but you soon learn not to drink alcohol, fill up on yogurt, and avoid little fish things on rock hard bits of bread. Chinese food was spectacularly cheap for some reason. We did ten days and it was utterly brilliant. We also came back with tans due to the thin air, such that people thought we’d been to Spain.Posted 4 years ago
