The Great British cycling staycation
It’s been incredible to help so many of you escape for fun at the speed of the bike across the British Isles this summer! We’ve been sharing your adventures over on our Instagram, so do like us for your chance to see our UK trips come to life.
For those eager to join us on a UK holiday, please be aware our availability is now extremely limited for the remainder of 2021. We have a selection of self-guided holidays available and only a handful of group trip spaces still up for grabs, so get in touch quickly to snap them up.
We have also added 2022 dates for our entire range, so you can start planning and book ahead for next year.
Late season escapes overseas
We know many of you are eager to get abroad once again – we are too! Rest assured we have been closely monitoring the government’s traffic light system this summer and the news is finally looking more positive for travel overseas in the coming months.
So what do we know? From 19 July an easing of some further travel restrictions means anyone double vaccinated will no longer need to quarantine on return from most amber listed countries. With this in mind, we are pleased to say that this means many of you can now start thinking about a late-season cycling escape overseas once again. Please be aware that the impact of COVID-19 means we are focusing our efforts on selected holidays only this year. That said, these are based in some of our most popular destinations, so there are still lots of options to choose from.
If you are planning on travelling overseas this year, there are a few things we wanted to share:
- While the traffic light system offers a good guide on what you will need to do on your return to the UK, it is also important to keep an eye on the government’s travel advice to stay up to date with the latest restrictions.
- For those eager to head overseas later this year, we recommend taking a look at ABTA’s dedicated page, where you’ll find handy tips to prepare for travelling abroad again. Alternatively, do drop us a line – we’re here to help!
Our team can’t wait to welcome you back
When you book with us your safety is our number one priority. That’s why in light of COVID-19 we have adapted our safety protocols and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future, to ensure your safety. Ensuring you have the same experience on your trip we know you love wasn’t something we were willing to compromise and we think we got the balance just right. Just ask Karen Nicol who joined us on Land’s End to John O’Groat’s trip, or Russell Hogg who conquered Hadrian’s Cycleway.
After 25 years of delivering cycling holidays in a sustainable way, the ongoing pandemic’s impact on our daily lives has reinforced to us the positive social, cultural and economic role cycle tourism can have. We have a responsibility to the people and places we travel to and we cannot wait to bring them more visitors again safely this year. That’s everyone from Naomi and Dan and their teams in Italy and Spain, to our many local partners across the globe, our lovely guides, the hoteliers, and beyond.
Thank you again to our extended community of Skedaddlers for your continued support – it’s been one heck of a ride, with so many individual challenges, but better times are coming!
Until next time, take care and keep pedallin’,
Paul, Andrew and The Skedaddle team
