- So, going anywhere nice on (biking) holiday this year?
Why should you only tell your hairdresser about it?
I’m off to Scotland for a week next month, then hoping to schedule a trip to the Alps in the summer – although it’s proving more difficult than I imagined.
Perhaps Italy in the Autumn – or more likely next spring.Posted 9 years agothomthumbMember

4 days booked for the Sarn Helen, 2 days booked to do some riding on the isle of Man including end to end and two days booked for some riding down south including the SDW. I have 5 days over Easter free but it depends if my new bike arrives in time. If it does, Scotlands for me (7 Stanes), if not…..dunno. Still be in the UK though. I’m on all ports alert. I’ll be crucified if I try to leave the country.Posted 9 years agosteve_b77Member
Won a eurocamp holiday to any of their sites in Europe, so I gotta flick through the mag and pick a location next/near/on some big ass mountains.
Hope they’ve got some near Sierra Nevada, yey!!
Also planning a weekender in Mid/South Wales and maybe going all XC jhey boy and doing the C2C aswellPosted 9 years agomcmoonterMember
Off to France for a weeks moonting in La Creuse then a week with my road bike around Mt Ventoux in Provence. If the roads are mingin’ I’ll try the trails too.
Then in Sept off to do this http://www.cycleoregon.com/week-ride/ and then going moonting in Bend OR and Marin CA.
However there is still a lot of scope for riding in Scotland too. I was up Mt Keen on Sunday, one of the best rides ever. Blowing a gale but dry with spectacular views.Posted 9 years agoweebleMember
I seem to be doing loads this year.
Already done a week in Wales. Off to France to watch Paris – Roubaix ans a few days riding. Got a week in Scotland booked after Mayhem. Then two weeks riding up and around MT Ventoux in July. Two weeks riding in the Alpes Maritime in September and possibly a weeks riding in Spain!Posted 9 years agoSteveTheBarbarianMember

Weekend after next in Belgium with the road bike to ride the Tour of Flanders sportive, and watch the pros do it properly the next day.
Week in Italy in May (Lake Como) with the road bike. Just booked the flights today!
Étape – Mont Ventoux this year – in July (road bike again – detect a theme?)
Hopefully a trip to Scotchland with the MTB some time in the summer. Fingers crossed I can see something at the top of Mt Keen, rather than the whiteout of last time.Posted 9 years agowillMember

3 days in the lakes in a couple of weeks, week or two at bikevillage in sept all being well… probably the odd weekend/3 day trip here and there too. but off for an internship in tajikistan for 9 weeks of the summer, so will be missing out quite a bit of summer riding… 😕Posted 9 years agoTrustyrustyMember
Off to the French Alps with The White Room in August, will make a weekend of SSUK09 (really looking forward to that, last year’s was great) and would like to have a long weekend/week re-visiting the 7 stanes/Glentress and maybe even Fort Bill.
Just need to book the good weather now 😉Posted 9 years agoGuillianoMember
Work in a bike shop so can’t afford to go anywhere abroad….. but off to Dorset for the first May bank holiday and then hopefully to Afan for the rest of that week, although if the weather is good I may just take a Topeak tent and ride the whole Ridgeway both ways over a few days.Posted 9 years ago
