The sun is shining – get on your bike

Now that Summer is almost here, and the weather is being kind to us, I think it is the perfect time to get out in the sunshine and get on your bike. I am a huge fan of cycling as a form of exercise, and love the fact that it is a perfect activity for all the family to get involved in, regardless of age. It is also a great way to check out the countryside, or some of the great cycling routes and trails that are all around the country.

I tend to get involved in a cycling event of some form each year. In 2012 I was part of the Sky Bike ride, and interviewed Stacey Solomon who was the face of the event. Last year I was a guest blogger for the amazing 7-in-7 Cycling event which saw cyclists ride from Zurich to Birmingham, crossing seven countries in seven days and raising an amazing amount of money for charities. (You can read some of my guest posts here). This year I am collaborating with trailer experts Indespension, who have been compiling a comprehensive list of some of the best mountain bike centres in the country. Luckily, one of them is right on my doorstep in beautiful Cannock Chase. The Cannock Chase Mountain Bike Centre has lots of levels of difficulty in terms of the trails, these included really easy ones for beginners, leading right up to extreme courses for real bike aficionado’s.

Will you be getting on your bike this summer? Maybe this could be an idea for your Whitsun half-term holiday?
