Cycle camping

What better way to explore a region than on two wheels before heading back to the peace and tranquillity of a quality campsite or touring park? Whether you are a speed-thirsty semi-pro, an avid off-trail mountain biker or you’re someone who just likes to peddle back to your tent rather than drive, the five fantastic UK cycling regions we have selected for you here will provide outstanding cycling holidays. Combine the fresh air of the great life outdoors with the well-being of cycling and what do you get? Cycle camping: what a tonic. And we’ve done the work for you: on these pages you can select a region, find touring parks and campsites near cycling situating you within a short distance of the area’s celebrated cycling routes. You can even use our cycle route planner maps to see where each camping ground is located in relation to national, regional and local cycle routes.

And, because 2014 is a particularly special year for Yorkshire and cycling, (What's that you say? Cycling in Yorkshire? What's going on up there then?) whose inhabitants are eagerly hosting the Tour de France Grand Depart this summer, we have identified campsites, touring and caravan sites along both the Stage 1 route, Leeds to Harrogate, and the Stage 2 route, York to Sheffield. So, you can either pace-set or slip-stream this summer – it’s up to you!

What are you waiting for? See, hear and feel so much more of a place, its culture and landscape from the saddle of a bike before relaxing back at your tent, caravan or motorhome on a campsite that suits the particular needs of you and your family.
