Why cycle touring?

The slow pace enforced upon you when you are cycle touring is one of it’s greatest pleasures.  There is nothing like it, you have the complete luxury of being able soak up all of your surroundings in a way which you just can’t do with ay other form of travel, except perhaps long distance walking (more on this later).  Once you are fit, which will happen if you stay in the saddle long enough, then the miles can seem to roll pass with barely any effort, and when effort is required to get up the next big mountain pass then you are rewarded with stunning breath taking scenery, and of course the magic of freewheeling down the other side.  We are choosing this form of travel for our family so we can teach our girls from a young age that a healthy, simple lifestyle can often be the most rewarding.
