Designed specifically for families with young children and for those wanting to enjoy a holiday with a bit of cycling, this trip is traffic free, gentle and flat taking you deep into the gorgeous countryside of the Chilterns.
Designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty, the Chilterns are lightly populated and not so well known but home to The Carter Company. The hills are the backdrop to chalk streams, beech woods, scattered villages, more wildlife than you can dream about and small farms with a patchwork of cattle and arable fields. Dotted around are historic gems from the chateau and museum of the Rothschild family to the locks and canals of waterways and the imaginations of local author Roald Dahl. Add in local food highlights and you have plenty to enjoy each day.
The carefully chosen routes use cycle paths, bridleways and canal towpaths most of the time giving you a traffic free ride through nature and peace of mind. Distances are short giving an unhurried meander through wilderness countryside designed to refresh and inspire the whole family.
