Take to a tandem – Spain

Take to a tandem – Spain

Ah, the fun of freewheeling through the countryside under your own (joint) steam, pedalling in harmony

Ah, the fun of freewheeling through the countryside under your own (joint) steam, pedalling in harmony and stopping off at any tempting vineyards, lakes, temples or teashops you pass. Tandeming, however, shouldn't be taken lightly - many a more mature marriage has been tested while trying to harmonise on these bicycles made for two. But it can be lots of fun.

"Somewhere like Mallorca's wild southern coast- far from the resorts you might associate with the island - would be ideal," suggests Karl Watson from Inntravel (www.inntravel.co.uk). "Here you can cycle along quiet lanes, stay at intimate farmhouses, eat hearty homecooked meals and enjoy views of (without having to pedal over) the Sierra Tramuntana. Plus we offer the choice of a tandem or individual bikes."

Need to know: InnTravel's self-guided Mallorca's Southern Beaches to Central Plaincycle (graded easy) costs from £798 pp, including six nights' half board, cycle hire, maps and notes, and luggage transfer. There's a supplement for a tandem.

TOP TIP

Struggling to look sexy in cycling shorts? Don't wear them. Take your own padded saddle and invest in a set of padded pants that you can wear under your regular clothes; try the Polaris Ladies Bike Boxer Shorts.
