Went on holiday last year to Saint Jean du Monts and really regretted not taking bikes, as the Vendee seems an ideal place for a young family to go out and about on bikes. As of today, Mrs Polar, me and the wee ones all have two wheel transport and I've bought loads of cycle/camping stuff for the car. I want to try out all this kit before we go on our main holiday which is on a cycle route down south. I'd like to do this up North. I can only think of Skegness which matches the two aforementioned areas but its full of Fish & Chip eating erks. Also considered Tissington Trail in Derbys but our experience showed the tent site facilities to be lacking. Any ideas? Needs to be flat, the two youngest are too young for proper bikes with gears. Want a 3-4 day hol in late May. Expect Skeg is the answer as terrain wise it's quite similar to the Vendee, going up and down the coast line might be enough for the kids/wife. I want to convince them we can have a camping/cycling holiday in the Vendee/Holland would be viable next year.
