Charity cycle rides
Charity cycles give an incentive to take on a personal challenge while also contributing to charity. They can raise money for a local charity, such as to provide drinking water in the backwaters of Kerala which, although they are immersed in water, none of it is potable.
Many cycling holidays are for groups, however, if you prefer to cycle independently, and at your own pace, there are superb options out there. An organised self-guided cycling holiday takes all the work out of it for you, providing maps, copious notes, accommodation, luggage transfers and food. And of course, bikes. So all you have to do is cycle. Take on the Dordogne or the Danube, Sweden or Sri Lanka, for independent cycling in style.
