Well who would think the world could change so quickly?
We're really missing welcoming guests on our electric bike holidays and can't wait to be able to welcome you back soon. The weather has been glorious and the woodland looks absolutely stunning. Outdoor attractions are beginning to open and everything is looking perfect for an easy UK cycling holiday around the National Forest.
Are you open for bookings?
We are enjoying a surge of interest in bookings for our EBike cycling holidays, so thought it would be helpful to share our plans. We very much hope to be able to welcome guests again in early July, subject to Government advice. We have a register of interested guests, who wish to enjoy a cycling holiday, when the time is right. Once we have more information from the Government, we will confirm bookings for everyone who has registered interest and then open any remaining availability to new guests.
Due to demand, we are also now taking bookings for guests wishing to book an electric bike holiday in 2021.
Safety of guests
Guest safety is our number one concern. Our electric bike holidays are self-guided, so social distancing whilst you pedal is easy.
Unlike some parts of England, much of the National Forest remains an undiscovered treasure. Your relaxing cycling holiday will take you through beautiful English countryside and alongside peaceful canals and rivers, that still remain largely free from mass tourism.
The National Forest is full of places to explore and things to do, many of which are outdoors, or micro museums that you will often have to yourself. Take a stroll around the beautiful National Memorial Arboretum or marvellous grounds of Calke Abbey. Spend time learning about bee keeping or rural crafts. Enjoy a paddle down the gorgeous River Trent. Discover the railway heritage of the area at the two steam railways. Go back in time at the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre or Ashby Castle.
The area is full of lovely places to enjoy a drink or picnic alfresco and we will share all our favourites with guests.
Luxury secluded accommodation To comply with legislation, we may have to make some changes to accommodation in the short term. Happily much of the accommodation we use is small, rural B&Bs, some of which only have one room. We also have some wonderful self-catering options, many with only one or two luxurious units. Our accommodation providers pride themselves on the quality and cleanliness of their businesses and have been busy adapting their businesses, to ensure the safety of their guests. It might look a little different, but a warm welcome is still guaranteed.
Food and beer lovers will not be disappointed by the lovely options on offer around the National Forest. Many are now offering a delivery or take out service.
Electric Bikes included
Electric bike hire is included in all of our cycling holiday prices. We will sanitise bikes between bookings and re-sanitise touch-points when the bikes are delivered to your accommodation. We provide a GPS system and will email you daily route guides to print out at home, before your holiday, or follow on your phone. Guests also receive their own hard copy of the local Ordnance Survey map to keep.
We will be asking guests to bring their own helmets, should they wish to wear one.
We would love to help find your perfect electric bike holiday. Contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01530 417482 to discuss your requirements.
We will not request any payment until we are able to welcome guests again.
