It wasn’t too long ago that riding a bike was one of the more unfashionable things you could do but with governments keen to push green living, the amount of cycling commuters is now quite frankly staggering. It could be said that this is one of the reasons why there has been a huge increase in interest in biking holidays, with couples in particular keen to hit exotic locations and see the sights with their bike.

One summer my girlfriend and I decided it was time to get out and see the world together. Both being freelancers, we don’t have the riches it takes to go on a fancy trip to Paris or a Tropical getaway to Fiji.
