Eco -friendly cycle holidays in the borders of England and Wales
Eco- Friendly Cycling Holidays
Cycling holidays are definitely eco friendly holidays; pedal powered, emission free, enjoying local food, exploring the countryside and helping local community economies. Our main purpose when we set up Wheely Wonderful Cycling all those years ago, was to encourage people to think about getting away from their car and enjoying a cycling holiday. So we designed cycling holidays that anyone could undertake, especially novice cyclists, for whom this was a new idea and a new adventure.
Our own cycle touring holidays had involved long distances and camping.... we didn't think that this would be everybody's idea of fun, so Wheely Wonderful Cycling holidays included bike rides of 20 -30 miles per day, overnight stops in B&Bs and hotels and luggage transfers each day. Thirty years later, we have welcomed thousands of cyclists onto our cycling holidays and we know that they have carried on cycle touring in this country and abroad.
So why are we worrying about greening Wheely Wonderful Cycling? Aren't cycling holidays totally eco friendly? We have always been conscious of our environmental footprint and there is always rooms for improvement. So here is a brief rundown of how we are trying to make our cycling holidays even more eco friendly and sustainable.
