Family cycling holidays in the UK
Family holidays are the perfect time to combine spending quality time together while keeping active. They’re also a great opportunity to try something new and break out day-to-day life back at home.
If you’re looking for an active holiday, our UK holiday parks offer a wide range of options. From swimming pools to high ropes courses, and bungee trampolines to mini golf - there’s something for all ages and abilities.
Cycling is the ideal activity to combine with a UK break, whether it’s letting the little ones explore the park and make friends on two wheels, or heading out on a family adventure to take in local sights. Thanks to our parks’ fantastic locations, you’ll find great family cycling routes on the doorstep of nearly all of our resorts.
Bringing your bike on holiday & bike hire options
You’re welcome to bring your own bikes with you on your Parkdean Resorts holiday. A bike rack is a great investment for any family, with plenty of affordable options to fit any car, making it easy to strap your bike on and hit the road. You’ll also find ample parking and spaces around our holiday parks to lock your bike up during your stay.
If you don’t have your own bike, or don’t fancy bringing yours with you, we also offer convenient bike hire at four of our holiday parks, including:
- Lizard Point Holiday Park in Cornwall
- Warmwell Holiday Park in Dorset
- Camber Sands Holiday Park in East Sussex
- Cayton Bay Holiday Park in North Yorkshire
These fantastic locations are all ideal for a cycling holiday, whether you’re setting out to explore the iconic landscapes of the Lizard Peninsula, or taking in the sights of the Yorkshire Coast.
Heading elsewhere? Don’t worry, you’ll find plenty of local businesses offering bike hire near our parks across the UK. Check out the Sustrans website for local bike rental recommendations across the National Cycle Network.
As the saying goes, ‘it’s like riding a bike’, you never forget how to do it, and it’s something that nearly everyone can do! There are also great options for adapted bikes to suit those with additional mobility needs. Old and young family members alike can get involved in cycling and if your little ones are really young you can even take them along in a sidecar or child seat attached to your bike.
Exercise is great for the mind and body, and the best part about cycling is that it’s a fun low-impact exercise that you can get the whole family involved in. You won’t even realise you’re breaking a sweat because you’ll be enjoying yourself so much!
Enjoy the outdoors
From the golden beaches to lush greenery, our range of holiday park locations showcase the very best natural landscapes that the UK has to offer and you can ride through them taking in the sights on your bike.
Having a bike with you on holiday offers a super convenient way to get out and explore nearby attractions and landmarks. Plus if you’ve got a bike rack, you can head out further afield and see all that the region has to offer.
Types of holidays for cycling
Our holiday parks are strategically located in some of the UK’s most spectacular coastal, countrywide and woodland landscapes - offering a perfect setting for cycling holidays, whatever your preference.
Feel the breeze in your hair as you explore Britain’s endless miles of seaside promenades and an array of colourful fishing villages dotted along the coastline with a beach holiday. What better way to end a day of pedalling than by tucking into some tasty local fish and chips?
If exploring the rolling hills of the countryside and woodland trails is more your thing, you’ll find plenty of locations to suit - from the majestic Scottish Highlands to the lush green woodlands of Dorset.
Before heading on your next UK cycling holiday, we recommend checking out the National Cycle Network, offering thousands of miles of recommended and safe cycling paths and routes to choose from, for all abilities. It’s the perfect way to get started with planning your next break.
