"There's more to cycling holidays than just riding a bike!"
Going on cycling holidays is healthy enough, but if you add to that a healthy diet and eco-friendly activities then you really become a true green traveler - at least once in your lifetime.
Bicycle Beano Cycling Holidays gives just that. Jane Barnes and Rob Green have been organising cycling holidays since 1982 within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, the Snowdonia National Park and the Welsh Borders in England. Welcoming their 31st season this year, they stated that "Bicycle Beano was set up to be environmentally-friendly from the beginning. We have remained true to our ethos for the past 29 years."
Tours take place within groups, but the organisation gives away cycling maps as well so that those who want to cycle at their own speed and leisure can do so without having to stick to the group all the time. An average of 35/40 miles is cycled very day, with shortcuts and longer routes available as well to suits all needs. Travelers will be able to discover some of the most beautiful and quietest routes in Wales, where no motor vehicle can take them. Cycling paths go through different interesting stops such as historic sites, scenic viewpoints and swimming breaks among many others.
Food is an important part of the holiday and cyclists will be able to eat fresh vegetarian food, based as much as possible on home-grown organic fruit and vegetables to stay healthy. "You don't have to be a vegetarian to enjoy a beano, lots of non-veggies keep coming back because they enjoy our food", Barnes and Green say. Home-made cakes will be available as well to add a yummy touch to the holiday. Accommodation is carefully chosen according to how much comfortable it is so that travelers can really relax after a day of cycling.
Some piece, quiet, fun, delicious food and good exercise all in one holiday. As Barnes and Green explain, "there's more to cycling holidays than just riding a bike! The word 'BEANO' means a feast, an annual holiday, and a jolly time - Bicycle Beano is all that, with a bit of cycling thrown in."
