Take the slow route on holiday this year with a relaxing cycling holiday

 CyclingTaking the slow route is the only way to travel. If you don't want to miss a thing on holiday, cycling tours are absolutely ideal, letting you experience all the sights, smells and sounds of your destination, meeting the locals and visiting the more secluded, traditional and picturesque spots that cars fly past without a second's thought. There really isn't a better way to get to know your surroundings than from the saddle on a cycling holiday.

By choosing the 'cycling' option from the advanced search service, (located in the top left of HomeAway Holiday-Rentals pages), you can guarantee your holiday home is perfectly located for road cycling holidays, whether you would like to discover the hidden secrets of the local countryside or are looking for cycling routes for some serious training. Whatever your preferred style of cycling holiday, a private holiday home offers the perfect base, with the freedom to come and go as you please, the facilities to create your own menu, either eating in the little restaurants and cafes you discover on your cycling tour or the home cooked, high-carb meals you need for training, as well as all the space needed for all your equipment.
