Bicycle tours offer families a unique combination of cultural exploration and kid-friendly adventure, making them the perfect active vacation for parents and children. Experiencing a destinations geography and terrain, views and smells, and history and people makes for lifelong family memories. BikeToursDirect now offers more than 80 family-friendly bicycle tours to connect parents with plenty of options to find the perfect adventure for their family. This recently expanded selection includes tours in 22 countries throughout Europe, Asia, and Central America.
Bike tours particularly suited for families typically have a combination of several features (such as dedicated bike paths, short daily distances, and kid-friendly hotels) that make them appropriate for traveling with children of varying ages.
Tours on dedicated bicycle paths are a popular concept in Europe because they offer a carefree experience on vehicle-free routes, allowing kids a safe way to explore at their pace while parents can relax and enjoy the ride. And, if little legs get too tired to pedal, family-friendly tours in Europe make the most of extensive public transportation options by building in rest breaks with ferry rides or trains or by offering a back-up plan for getting to the next hotel.
Daily cycling routes are designed with distances manageable for most children to ride on their own while offering plenty of time for off-bike play and sightseeing. Offering families the flexibility to set their own pace, self-guided bike tours still provide support like luggage transfers, route maps and cue sheets, and a service hotline. These self-guided tours are also appealing to families for their affordable prices, which start at $ 550 per person for one week and often have discounts for children sharing rooms with parents. For parents who want more structure and support as well as the added perspective and insight they would get from a local guide, guided bike tours are a good option.
Hotels are often specially selected for these tours for their appeal to families, perhaps with a swimming pool or location near kid-friendly activities. For those who would prefer to stay in a single hotel throughout the tour and only unpack once, home-base tours with daily loop rides are a good choice.
BikeToursDirects staff consults with parents to identify which of their more than 80 family-friendly tours is the right fit for their needs. We help parents match their budget, kids ages and cycling ability levels, and dream vacation destination with a tour with the right riding distances, hotels, activities, and availability of equipment like trailers or kids bikes, says Heather Lee, Senior Tour Specialist at BikeToursDirect. There are a lot of variables to consider when traveling with children, so were always excited to match families with their perfect adventure and then get their reports and pictures after the tour saying it was the trip of a lifetime for the whole family.
A classic European route ideal for families is the Danube Family Tour through Germany and Austria. Following the Danube Bike Path, it keeps travelers safely away from motorized traffic, and has shorter daily riding distances than the usual program on this route, due in part to scheduled boat rides on many days. Available equipment for children includes kids bikes, tag-alongs, trailers, and tandems. Land cost starts at 630 for adults and 315 for children, with children under 6 (sharing parents room) riding for free.
BikeToursDirect client Kathryn Brown traveled with her husband and children, ages 5 and 8, on the Danube Family Tour in 2012. The best part of our trip (besides feeling so proud of my childrens efforts) was freely exploring each day on our own, she says. Even though BikeToursDirect had our back, we were free agents from sunup to sundown. We felt like pioneers, explorers, students (of maps and German phrases!), and we formed a stronger bond with another culture and within our own family.
Another popular tour is the Connemara Family Cycling program in Ireland. A truly independent adventure designed for families with children over age 8, this self-guided tour explores the untouched reaches of coastal Ireland at travelers own pace and leisure. Families can choose their level of adventure with accommodations too, with package options for hotels, traditional bed and breakfasts, or hostels. Land cost starts at 565 for adults and 395 for children under 16.
BikeToursDirects more than 80 family-friendly bike tours are in 22 countries, including Ireland, Austria, Germany, Holland, Portugal, Cambodia, Vietnam, and more. View them all at http://www.biketoursdirect.com/search/results/&tag=5.

There are many people out there that don’t know the benefits of window tinting. Orlando has the most need for this service. With the high temperatures all year long in Florida, it is not considered an upgrade here it is considered a necessity. Though most people considered window tinting Orlando only for cars they are dreadfully wrong. The thing film or laminate can be installed to the interior many surfaces that have glass. This is for automobiles,, boats, homes and buildings. The film helps block the UV rays that come in. Window tinting on cars help filter the sun so the interior of the car is not so hot when left. It also helps keep the interior from aging prematurely. This is also the same case with building and homes. The UV light when filtered cant cause fading with carpet or furniture. It also helps keep the utility bills at a minimum because the air-conditioning units can keep up with the heat. Most people put thick drapes that block out the sun to keep the heat out. This is no longer necessary. Because you are not blacking the windows, you no longer need to add the lights on too. This saves the even more on the utility bills. This window film can even be put on the window sif you want privacay. Most companies use this on their buildings so they can still add light in but they don’t have to sacrifice privacy. This film will save you money over time, and paying for itself in the same short time. This can give you the peace of mind that you need. There are many uses for this window film helping keep each business, vehicle, and even boats with the advantages of using window tinting Orlando.

michael McGOLDRICK and john mcsherry -07 trip to Ireland.
Newburyport, MA (PRWEB) June 21, 2011
Legendary landscapes and biking roads with more sheep than cars are only two of the many reasons that Easy Rider Tours, a 25-year specialist in European cycling vacations, recommends Ireland for cyclists planning their first-ever overseas bicycling holiday. Fascinating history, a lively culture, friendly locals, and perfect pints of Guinness all add to Irelands allure for the adventurous cyclist.
Learning about local history and culture enhances any travel experience, and Ireland especially lends itself to that, says Easy Rider director Jim Goldberg. Irelands contemporary history is easy to relate to, from the potato famine of 1845 to Queen Elizabeths recent visit. Its ancient history is both mysterious and romantic, from mystical stone circles and tombs to legends of the pirate queen Grace OMalley. A typical days bike ride in Ireland can encompass 3,000 years. Theres no better way to exercise, learn, and have fun all at the same time, says Goldberg. The lack of a language barrier is another big advantage, he continues. The Irish are great conversationalists and love to chat. The ability to converse easily with the locals makes a world of difference in getting the most out of a first-time European bike trip.
Western Shores is Easy Riders easiest and most popular Ireland bike tour for first-time European pedalers. The seven-day cycling vacation spins through County Clare, Connemara, and Inishmore, the largest of the Aran Islands. Highlights include the seaside village of Doolin (whose pubs are a mecca for traditional Irish musicians and their fans), the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren National Park (including a naturalist-guided hike), and an evening of folk tales with an Irish storyteller. Accommodations are in country manor houses, with a fairy-tale finale at five-star Ashford Castle in County Cong. Each group is accompanied by two native Irish cycling guides who are also experts on local history and lore. In addition, a support vehicle is always available to provide snacks, offer assistance, and carry luggage (not to mention tired bikers). The per-person tour price of $ 3,195 includes all accommodations, most meals, two guides, support vehicle, and in-country transportation. Trip dates for 2011 are July 24-30 and September 3-9.
Easy Rider also offers two additional bike tours in Ireland geared toward stronger cyclists. Coasting Kerry is a nine-day ride through Irelands most famous landscapes, including the Gap of Dunloe and Killarney National Park. Celtic Challenge is an eight-day Ireland bike tour specially designed for the expert cyclist, with rides averaging 60 miles per day through County Kerry and County Cork. Bike tour departures for 2011 run from June through September; groups are limited to 16 participants.
