- So, going anywhere nice on (biking) holiday this year?
sunny skies and chairlifts are hardly in abundance in the UK.
Many people will be holidaying at home for financial reasons – I for one. Well we can’t do much about sunshine, but it’s about time the tourist boards put pressure on authorities to sign-off summer-season uplift business applications.
Would you think about holidaying the UK if you could get reliable XC and DH uplifts in the UK this summer?Posted 9 years ago
slugwash – we rode from santander out to the wst coast of spain and then back up through France a couple of years ago.
The ferrry to Santander is brilliant. Taking it in May on the way to Luchon before tourng (by van this time) back up through central france again. Its a great way of getting a long way away without too much driving. A good sleep on board, places for Jr to play etc. and really good food (french vessel)Posted 9 years agochakapingSubscriber

Not sure if that was directed solely at me Buzz? Possibly not, but for the record I am holidaying in Scotland for a week in April (and riding up the hills).
Also, I will probably have another four or five long weekends in the UK this year, whatever the weather.
That’s opposed to one (if that) foreign holiday this year, in Europe, which I hope to get uplifts on. And warm weather would be nice too.
I’ve only had one foreign biking holiday before, in southern Spain – and it was the combination of the riding, the weather, the scenery, the food and drink and the relaxed Spanishness of the experience that made it so great – not just the uplifts (there were only two van days anyway).
What kind of uplift permits you talking about anyway? Vehicular or the ski-lift type?
Would make an interesting thread of it’s own.Posted 9 years agojojoA1Member
Just about all my hols are going to be used for biking stuff. Lots of racing weekends that will need friday and monday to get to and from cos I live so far North.
2 weeks in the Alps including the Megavalanche in July is the ‘family’ holiday. Getting excited as am in the process of booking the campsite with the wonderful assistance of Juan 🙂 Who happens to be coming to visit Aviemore and me ‘n’ him indoors will try and show him a good time.
PS: Mrs Flash, I was in Italy in Sept (with Rivierabike, who I think you’re going with) and it was FREEZING. It snowed on the tops one of the days, so make sure you take some warm clothes. I had to borrow a fleece from Jo, Ady’s partner, as I had only taken sunny weather clothing 🙁Posted 9 years ago
