As travellers become more adventurous with their holiday styles, Freedom Treks has noted a sharp rise in the number of first-time customers trying out short bike breaks. With nearly 30 short cycling tours to choose from, the cycling holiday specialist has found that many holidaymakers feel a 3 to 5 night break is the perfect introduction to the sport.

Saul Follett, Freedom Treks Manager, said: “For those new to bike tours, a short break can be a great way to try this style of holiday without committing too much time or money. In many cases, having become hooked on cycling after a long weekend away, customers come back to book a longer or more challenging trip for the following year.”

For others, however, weekend or mid-week breaks are simply ideal if they're short on time but big on holiday ambition.

Saul Follett added: “Guests are always amazed by how much they can pack into a few days away on a Freedom Treks' short break. Whether they're looking to recharge their batteries or want to take advantage of better value mid-week flights, they can count on returning home feeling like they've achieved something after a short cycling break with us.”
