Travel deals site is embracing the growing trend for 'bikepacking.' Their guide to The Best Bikepacking locations of 2016 looks at a range of routes suitable for experienced riders, casual cyclists and families.

Alice Mariscotti-Wyatt, editor at comments:

"The British cycling economy is booming, to help our readers make the most of their enthusiasm for this sport we have mapped out a number of routes across Europe. From rising stars to classic choices there is something for everyone."

The guide includes cycle routes for a wide range of abilities, featuring road based, mountain bike and greenway routes in Norway, Croatia, Malta, Poland, UK, Spain, Italy and France.

For each suggested route there is a link to a handy map. This includes details of the towns and villages passed on route, types of road surface, rider level, traffic expectations, how long the cycle should take and highlights to look out for along the way.

The 'short road' suggestions work well for occasional cyclists. Croatia is a good option here. Home to Dubrovnik Harbour and the beaches of Split and Zadar, sprinkled with medieval towns, quaint fishing villages and more. The suggested route along the Dalmatian coast follows a 15-mile road hugging the edge of Split's Park Suma. Beginning at Stadion Poljud, it loops along the ocean edge to Aci Marina.

More experienced cyclists may enjoy taking on some of the longer hillier routes such as Sierra de Guadarrama in Spain. One for experienced mountain bikers, this 40-mile trail is nicknamed 'The Engineer.' A single track trail spanning San Rafael village in Segovia, winding through three of Spain's provinces and comprising heart stopping climbs with an elevation of 1,300 metres.

Family cycling is catered for too, head to the Loire Valley in France, packed with cycle greenways snaking through the stunning natural scenery of the region. The featured route between Nogent le Rotrou and Remalard Veloscenic is a 10-mile ride. Beginning with the enchanting forest scapes of the Loire Valley, before joining a greenway from Conde-sur-Huisne to Alencon and following the meadows of Huisne River. A safe and relaxing cycle for all the family.
