Cycling holiday

Cycling holiday is the way to go in 2020.

With the Covid-19 pandemic putting a temporary halt to most passenger plane traffic, this upcoming summer calls for a holiday that does not require flying. and a cycling holiday is in many ways the best way to travel right now.

Flying on holiday will be a challenge this summer.

Borders are starting to reopen in Europe. And also in several other countries. Flight routes will only start slowly again though. So I suggest that you forget about flying on holiday this summer.

Cycling is a fantastic way to avoid the crowds.

Avoiding the crowds is easy on a bicycle.

Because of the virus situation you are much better off if you avoid the crowds this summer. Some would say that this is always the case. But this year you really want to avoid them. And this is where cycling comes in as a perfect way to travel

Wales cycling

Rural Wales is superb for a cycling holiday.

And you can both travel within your own country. and to the countries that neighbours your own country. I am a big fan of flying overseas a couple of times a year. And then go cycling around exotic destinations. but this summer it’s time to explore the northern Europe for me. Simply cause this is easily done, even in these covid-19 times. And I have several things that I would like to see.

Camping and shelters is the way to go this summer.

Shelter Denmark.

Forest shelter in Denmark, where I stayed for the night, a few days ago.

Normally I am more of a guest house cyclist. I love the social life that it gives. And I love visiting local cafes, restaurants and bars when I travel by bicycle. But this summer, there will be limited opening hours for many of these places. So camping will be my main way to spend the night. I will want to avoid huge camp sites. Crowds is not really a good thing. And I do not need playgrounds, swimming pools and so on, when I am pitching my tent. But small basic camp sites are perfect for me. I am happy to pay a little camp sites for facilities, where I can shower and so on. But I plan to combine it will some wild camping. And also some shelter camping in my native Denmark, which is quite organised here.

And don’t stop living, just because of Covid-19.

I hear some people argue that the world has changed forever. and that we will never get to travel freely again. Now that is bloody rubbish. We are already nicely on the way to combat this pandemic. the medical world is making improvements every week. And within 1-2 years we will have some sort of vaccine or cure. But we should not stop living until that cure is here. We just need to just to the new realities. And hen we can still explore many places. Especially places that are a little closer to home. And exploring both places far away and close to home is important in my opinion.

Don’t stop living, when you can go on a cycling holiday in a place like this.

I have already been tour cycling a little this spring in my native Denmark. and I will be tour cycling in Denmark some more in the coming weeks. And I plan to do a tour of either Germany or Sweden with my bike this summer. I’m already looking forward to a summer of bicycle travel. Covid-19 or not.

If you need a little practical info and inspiration, then I have a bit of advice about tour cycling on various countries. Some destinations where I have info about tour cycling on my blog is :AlbaniaBrazilCambodiaCzech RepublicIndiaIndonesiaMadeiraMalaysiaMexicoPhilippinesPortugalSri LankaVietnam and Wales.

  1. I completely agree with this:
    ‘I hear some people argue that the world has changed forever. and that we will never get to travel freely again. Now that is bloody rubbish. We are already nicely on the way to combat this pandemic. the medical world is making improvements every week. And within 1-2 years we will have some sort of vaccine or cure. But we should not stop living until that cure is here.’
    I see this as an opportunity to see some places in the UK that we’ve neglected in the past in favour of foreign trips. But as a non-cyclist and non-camper I need to wait until a few accommodation options open up, hopefully by the autumn.
