Trends / Health & Wellness

Get on your bike in Scotland and you’ll have a chance to experience the best of the country at a relaxed pace.

Head to the Outer Hebrides to ride the Hebridean Way, which runs the length of the island chain. It’s 185 miles from end to end and the whole thing usually takes six days.

If you want a shorter trip, try the ride from Edinburgh down to the sea. Hire a bike in town and ride out for lunch in Leith, where the Royal Yacht Britannia is found.

Get out into the nature and hit the trails at Devilla Forest, where you can mountain bike through an impressive expanse of woodland home to lots of red squirrels. Another good spot for nature lovers is the Loch Leven Heritage Trail, where you might spot osprey, otters and kingfishers while you ride.

For sheer natural beauty it’s hard to beat the Montrose Basin, a huge tidal estuary also home to plenty of animals. If you are up for a challenge, take on the Assynt Achiltbuie Circular trail in the Highlands. It’s a 70-mile stretch that will take you past lovely lochs and huge mountains.

Under $100: Lyon, France

Somewhere between Paris, Provence and the border with Switzerland is the charming riverside city of Lyon, a burgeoning culinary capital in a country with one of the world’s best cuisines. Lyon’s reputation as a food destination grew within the past decade, and visitors flock to the less-crazed and friendlier town for a more laid-back approach to French cuisine.

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
