Brits Bring Out Their Bikes After Being Inspired By Olympic Heroes

Expect to see more lycra clad cyclists speeding through our streets after a poll of BreakFree Holidays customers found that over 50% of you say you plan to use your bike more after watching the heroics of Bradley Wiggins, Chris Hoy and the rest of Team GB.


Of more than 850 people who responded to our poll (results taken on August 2-3) 57% say you have been inspired by British victories at the Tour de France and Olympics to use you own bike more often, and 20% say that you might hit the saddle more regularly.

Watching Chris Hoy and his team hurtling round the velodrome and seeing Bradley Wiggins speeding through the French countryside in the Tour de France and then repeating the feat in the Olympics road race is energising Britain to wheel our bikes out of the garage, check the brakes, pump up the tyres and get pedalling.

Whether cycling to work, taking the bikes on holiday or just heading out for fun, cycling is a great way to stay healthy.

There are amazing bike routes across the UK and France, along stunning coastal routes, through beautiful countryside, woods and national parks, and even through most built up areas.

If you’ve been inspired by Britain’s cyclists and what to take your bike to a beautiful UK region, grab one of our holidays from only £15pp.
