Why Take An Active Holiday
The benefits of taking a cycling holiday with Bike and Saddle
Time... to relax and recharge
When you think of taking a cycling holiday the Bike and Saddle way, with close family or friends or as our guest, your mind is immediately transferred to open countryside with wonderful views and plenty of backroads. As you cycle gently along, making unhurried stops for lunch, photos and visiting points of interest en-route, you have all the time in the world to relax, unwind and soak up your surroundings. Top quality hotels or family-stay await you after your day in the saddle, to ensure a restful night's sleep.
Time... for a healthier lifestyle
On a cycling holiday with us you cannot help but slip into a healthier lifestyle. Gentle daily exercise combined with plenty of fresh air is the perfect antidote to a busy lifestyle. Picture starting the day with a leisurely breakfast, and taking the road at your own pace; you will sit down to dinner each night with a healthy glow and plenty of happy memories.
Time... to take in the sights
Cycling holidays open up a world of exploration possibilities. Charming villages, small towns and sometimes dramatic changing scenery, all come into focus as you peddle from along. Our tours allow you to stop when you want to and spend extra time visiting historic sites, exploring vineyards or simply enjoying a cappuccino and croissant at a local cafe.
Time... to get closer to nature
A bike or multi-sport tour inevitably awakens an interest in nature since you are closer to it in the saddle. Wherever you take your cycling tour with us, you will experience the delights of seasonal flora and fauna, as well as local birds and animals. Great for lovers of photography, as well as families with children, there is a wealth of natural beauty waiting to be explored on all of our cycle tours.
Time... to get to know an area properly
Our active holidays allow you plenty of time in which to familiarise yourself with an area. Whether you have always fancied exploring the wine counry, or are drawn to the coast and its annual whale migration, our tour will show you the highlights, at a comfortable and relaxing pace. There are also options on many of our tours to arrange extra days, to spend additional time in areas that are of particular interest to you. Just remember to take lots of photographs!
Time... to create special memories with your loved ones
Getting away from it all, as a couple or small group, provides plenty of time to strengthen those important bonds. Whether you are peddling around the big five in Shamwari Reserve, or along the beautiful Wild Coast coastline, your holiday is a shared adventure, and will generate many happy memories that you will treasure for years to come.
