Hot on the heels of the UN declaring June 3rd as World Bicycle Day comes this reminder that the week of 9-17 June is Bike Week, one of the UK’s largest celebrations of cycling, which this year is celebrating its 95th anniversary.
Cycling tour specialist BSpoke Tours is encouraging cyclists to pedal into bike week by booking a two-wheeled trip abroad and enjoying a sip of tasty wine as an extra reward.
Simply book any cycling holiday with activity holiday specialists BSpoke Tours this June and as well as a fabulous cycling experience in one of eleven countries, you will receive a luxury mixed case of six wines from Virgin Wines, worth £100, to raise a toast to Bike Week – visit their site here.
“Savouring the local cuisine and visiting vineyards for a tasting session or two are popular parts of our itineraries,” says Ben Roseveare, Activities Director at BSpoke Tours.
“We think it’s a perfect fit to offer those booking a cycling holiday a case of wine as a flavour of what their trip will include, as well as a reward for their work on two wheels. It also allows customers to raise a toast to Bike Week which – in its 95th year – should certainly be recognised as a great British event.”
Continues Roseveare: “For novices, cycling holidays are a great way to build confidence on a bike – countries such as the Netherlands and France have excellent cycling paths and easy rides through the picturesque countryside. For cycling enthusiasts, countries such as Portugal and Spain provide more challenging routes through mountain and rugged coastal terrain. Enjoying the great outdoors, spending time with friends and family, and being active are just some of the benefits of a cycling holiday.”
Here is one example from the BSpoke range which you might like to select for Bike Week.
Cycling the Istrian Peninsula, Croatia
Istria is a superb region to explore by bike, with a mix of green forests, historic hilltop towns, vineyards and olive groves framed by the crystal clear ocean. Visit Istrian winemakers and sample delicious wines when touring through the medieval towns of Groznjan, Oprtalj and Motovun to the fishing town of Rovinj along the wine route.
