- Kid Friendly Bike Holiday?
I’ve seen loads of info on here about the various companies offering guided bking holidays. My question is whether anyone has any recommendations for companies/destinations to use for a family/biking holiday. I have to admit here that I’m thinking more of the occupy the kids elsewhere thing than the ride with the kids thing… although they both try hard and have done a fair few of the designated blue routes around the country they are only 5 and 7 years old so still a bit limited.
What I’m after is either
Somewhere the kids can be entertained 2 or 3 times in the week while we go off and ride.
Somewhere with riding suitable for 5 year olds so we can ride together
Somewhere we can do alternate days proper riding while the other does the childcare. Obviously you could do this with BV etc but it’d end up costing a fortune per day ridden.
Any suggestions?Posted 4 years agoalan-sierracyclingSubscriber

This might sound counter intuitive, but bike parks are good for this sort of thing.
Most have easy green/blue runs that are ideal for kids and being all down hill they will probably love it. Most good parks also have loads of other things to do when not riding as well so it doesnt get boring for them. The fact that everything comes back to the same place means that adults can alternate runs on their own or one can go with the kids while the other rides solo. There is usually quite a few kids around as well for them to play with.
Valnord is excellent for kids, excellent blues and greens and loads of peripheral stuff like rope slides and go karts. Deux Alpes is similar but has even more kid friendly trail options, and loads of english kids of similar age at the campsite in Venosc.
I have been taking my lad to bike parks since he was 5, he always has a great time, especially as pedalling was optional 🙂
Just stay away from the busy resorts like the PdS as they would be potential carnage.Posted 4 years ago
