We the family etc are going to Elveden, Norfolk, Centre Parcs in August the family bikes are being taken what security precautions would you advise we take?. Has anyone had any experience of this place?. :?:
All of the hire bikes have the cheapest of locks anyway - so do lock yours up with something a bit more secure. Hire bikes I'd happily leave outside. My own bike ? That would be in the chalet.
If it doesn't move and should, use the WD40.
If it shouldn't move and does, use the tape.
Plenty of cycling going on but you had to have eyes in the back of your head :!: as both pedestrians,cyclists and all age groups shared the paths and roadways plus you also have to contend with service vehicles albeit moving slowly. Your limited if you wish to cycle on trails? as to whats inside the parc is poor i didn't see any information on what was available outside. Oh and bike hire is not cheap, *safety helmets and other items can be purchased or *hired the bike shop prices were full retail. Staff were friendly,courteous and helpful as we found everywhere we went.
As far as we were concerned it was an adventure but with disappointments, good for kids but you Do need to keep a close eye on them in some areas. Certainly the bikes went inside at night and good locks taken. Other activities such as walking on a good forest trail did not exist we were told. The fishermen thought the lake was fine but a joke as to swims and times for fishing.
Centre Parcs gave us an impression that in some areas did not for us come up to scratch but they certainly could improve and i hope they do, for me they most definatly are missing out on a few tricks :idea:
Cannondale Synapse alloy with 'guards for the winter roads
Fuji Altamira 2.7 for the summer roads
Trek 830 Mountain Track frame turned into a gravel bike - for anywhere & everywhere
