In June I enjoyed my first taste of a Freedom Treks cycling tour, relaxing & unwinding in the comfort of a beautifully restored Alentejo Farmhouse on the Cycling in Paradise tour in rural Portugal. It was such a fantastic experience, I want to go back!
September and October are possibly our favourite months of the year for a cycling holiday. Routes are beginning to get less busy after the summer rush, temperatures are more comfortable and attractions are quieter than in the middle of summer.
Once Easter weekend has passed, the longer evenings bring renewed energy and motivation to holiday plans. The early days of spring are primed for a gentle and leisurely cycling holiday, with warmer temperatures, nature bursting into bloom, fewer tourists and very attractive low season airfares.
