An escape from the harsh winter conditions is a welcome relief for anyone at this time of year, but it's even more glorious for the cyclist. Riding in shorts with the sun on your face, long cafe stops topping up your tan and post ride sundowners seems like a very distant memory in these long winter months!
That is why the 'cycling holiday' is such a treat over winter. Some much needed vitamin D usually means hopping over to Europe where the roads are open, the sun is shining and the cycling is oh so good. Getting away for a week or weekend will not only help to keep you sane in the winter months, but it's a great way to kick start your training for the spring and summer to come.
