A Winter Warmer
A 3 night cycling holiday, designed to make the most of the winter months. Cycling between 20 and 25 miles each day, your EBike holiday will take you to the lovely city of Lichfield, a food lovers dream and perfect for a wander on a winter's day. The serene National Memorial Arboretum is a delight to explore on a crisp winter's day and is hosting the Hold Still exhibition until 6th December, focusing on life in the UK during Lockdown. The boardwalk at Barton Marina is the perfect place to grab a seat in the sun, whilst enjoying a drink or lunch. It's home to a number of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. A fabulous network of tracks takes you through the Forest, where you can learn more about its transformation from black to green. The area include lots of cafes, designed for sitting outside in all seasons. You can even warm up with a delicious hot chocolate, straight from the neighbouring artisan choclatier.
Breweries and Steam
This electric bike holiday allows you to experience some of the diverse landscape of England's National Forest and includes something for everyone. Lovers of beer will enjoy the opportunity to visit Burton on Trent's National Brewery Centre, as well as several microbreweries, which are keeping the Midlands brewing tradition alive.Railway heritage is evident during much of this route. You will cycle past the Swannington Incline, part of one of England's first railways and designed by the great railway engineer Robert Stephenson, the inventor of the Rocket. The delightful Shackerstone Steam Railway, which runs alongside the Ashby Canal is a lovely stop-off point to enjoy a coffee on the station platform or take a ride along the restored line. At the National Trust property Calke Abbey, you will cycle along the old lime kiln railway and other sections of the tour use dismantled railways. The landscape changes quickly, from the glorious rolling landscape of National Trust run Calke Abbey, through transformed mining and industrial areas, into flat countryside, crisscrossed by the Ashby Canal and populated by unspoilt villages. Please note, whilst most of this cycling tour uses quiet lanes and tracks, some busy traffic is unavoidable in Burton on Trent centre. If you would like to miss the Brewery Centre, then please let us know and we will offer an alternative route.
