Stay on your bike with Headwater

24 September 2009

This autumn grab the opportunity to get up close and personal to your holiday bike. Headwater, offers independent cycling holidays to France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Austria and Britain.

A recent survey of Headwater’s guest found that 98% of them love the bikes that the bike doctors at Headwater provide. The report also found that they dread the thought of being parted from their bike at the end of their cycling holiday.

Fear not as Headwater is offering one lucky customer the chance to keep their bike once their holiday is over!

Anyone booking a French or Italian* cycling holiday departing between 12th - 30th September 2009 will automatically be entered into a prize draw to win their bike at the end of the month! No problems in getting it back home either – Headwater will bring it back at the end of the season and will make sure it's thoroughly checked and serviced before handing it over.

Catherine Crone, Managing Director of Headwater says “Cycling is a great mode of transport to meander around Europe off the beaten track. Headwater’s guests are canny when it comes to cycling and this balmy autumn it will be a fantastic way to get to work or use it at the weekends for a quick trip to the shops. We are happy that Cycling holidays continue to grow in popularity”.

Head to Italy and stay in the picturesque farm-hotel Agriturismo l’Albara, surrounded by olives, poplars and cherries, this is a most delightful and friendly cycle break. An agritourismo holiday encompasses a stay on a working farm and may be less formal than staying in a hotel but it is no less comfortable and has the benefit of using fresh, regional cuisine. Even the wine is produced on the farm. Join the locals for fruit picking, taste the grappa at the nearby distillery or gaze in awe at the Palladian villas right on the doorstep.

To compliment the cycling, visit the “must see” regional highlights of Venice, Vicenza and Padua or experience the traditional markets at Bastia. Save £90 on air, rail or tour only and enter the draw! This seven night independent cycling holiday “Heart of Venetia” on half board starts from £489 per person tour only, including bicycles, route notes and maps, regional information and Headwater staff on hand. Prices start from £769 per person with flights from London Heathrow (BMI) to Venice Marco Polo with connecting rail transfers. Flights are also available from most regional UK airports. Eurostar travel starts from £539.
