Family fun outdoors – Center Parcs Comp

This month’s Center Parcs Family blogger challenge involves going on a family bike ride. Sadly C and I don’t own bikes, even though we love to cycle and really enjoyed riding during our holiday at Longleat Center Parcs. So our mode of transport is walking, which we really love to do and enjoy taking a picnic and heading into the woods.

Center Parcs spokesperson, Sam Dowsing, Cycle Centre Manager at Elveden Forest, shared his tips on how you can make the most of your family bike ride. We especially liked this tip.

“Pack a picnic to take with you and find a nice spot to stop along the way for a full day in the outdoors. Make sure to choose foods that won’t get bruised or damaged in transit!” – Sam Dowsing, Cycle Centre Manager at Elveden Forest 

We took our picnic off to our local woods and enjoyed climbing trees, looking for bugs, listening for birds and seeing how high we could get on the climbing frame. Our picnic was polished off to fast I didn’t even have time to capture it on my camera. We took some delicious strawberries as M is quite fussy with food, but really loves a strawberry, also I am quite partial to an apple, which is quite a good picnic food. We have some more picnics planned for the few weeks, I can’t wait to see how many trees M manages to climb then.
