Festival season: Benicàssim

After having spent my last summer holiday at a muddy and cold Leeds Festival, I thought that I had experienced the most extreme conditions possible for a music festival. Persistent rain, flooded tents and extortionate festival prices left me penniless, wet and having to trudge to the Salvation Army tent every morning for a free cup of soup to keep me going. Consequently, my friends and I thought that a summer holiday spent at FIB Festival, Benicàssim would be a doddle in comparison. Despite some apprehension regarding three of us sleeping in a tent in 35-degree heat, we decided to disregard the hotel or glamping option entirely – we thought we were pretty camping-savvy after the previous year – and took our own tent.

Raleigh Strada Trail Sport Electric Review

Raleigh Strada Trail Sport Electric

The Raleigh Strada Trail Sport Electric is an entertaining, healthy solution to your holiday transportation over the school holiday and summer holiday season. The adaptability of the Strada is one of its main features with its robust frame and 73mm Travel Suntour suspension fork allowing you to tackle the toughest of paths such as mountains and woodland with ease yet its handling also makes it ideal for a more urban ride through town's or city.

The aesthetics of the Strada stands out as much as how well it performs, standing out from other bikes due its striking illuminous green appearance and has no chance of being hard to see.
