Let’s face it, one of the best things about motorhoming is the fact that you can get out and about and see the very best of the UK – and the rest of Europe – with ease.
But one of the downsides is that motorhomes are big and often tricky to park: it’s not always simple to visit the remote locations and attractions that you’d be able to if you were in a car.
However, there is a straightforward solution, and it’s one that’s fun, good for the environment and will save you fuel – and that’s to take a bike with you on tour.
The right bike for every motorhomer
Of course, you’ll want it to be compact and light in weight, so it’s easy to store or stow on a rack – and that’s where online bike experts Tredz comes in.
Tredz offers the world’s biggest and best cycle brands and models, including lots of brilliant bikes that are perfect for motorhomers, no matter whether you’re a cycling beginner or an old hand. So to help you choose, here’s our pick of the bicycle bunch…
Looking for a great all-rounder that you can use to cycle far and wide, using your campsite as a base? The Giant Escape 3 City Disc is for you – it features a lightweight ALUXX frame, pannier racks to let you carry your shopping, mechanical disc brakes and and 3×7 gears.
The Boardman SLR 8.6 is ideal for motorhomers looking for a stylish cycle, and perhaps their first road bike. The SLR has a lightweight alloy frame, carbon forks and more – and with prices starting at just £585, it’s great value-for-money, too.
Folding bikes are brilliant for storing in your motorhome’s garage – they’re compact and easy to ride to the local shops or further afield, too. The P Line Urban also offers the benefits of electric assistance, taking the strain when you want to take it that bit easier.
The Orbea Vector Drop brings motorhomers the best of both worlds – a comfortable geometry with drop handlebars, allowing you to cycle far and wide with ease. Disc brakes and puncture-resistant tyres will help keep you safe on the road, too.
There’s no cycle trail that’ll prove too much trouble for the Specialized Levo Comp Carbon – it’s perfect if you want to head off-road when you’re away on tour.
It features a lightweight carbon frame, Turbo Full Power 2.2 electric motor and a variable geometry – even the steepest hills will prove a doddle on this fantastic e-mountain bike.
Pushed for space in your campervan? The Brompton C Line Explore is the one for you – it’s a go-anywhere workhorse that can take you to your destination in comfort every day of the year. It folds down into a compact package, too, meaning it’s easy to stow when you’re done for the day.
