Our video takes us to a bike path in Beaune, France, where these travellers are pedalling into magic hour.
Tour de Everywhere
Travelling and the bicycle have been in a serious committed relationship for centuries, and it’s not hard to understand why. Just about every environment, from desert to mountain to rolling prairie, is accessible with a trusty bike, and the world is always eager to offer options aplenty for leisurely pedallers and hardcore asphalt-eaters alike. Cycling through your destination brings you closer to the land and its people than just about any other style of travel. The mobility of a bike gives you the chance to see well-known locales from a new perspective and opens up their more remote corners to deeper exploration. And since you control the pace, you’re free to stop at a friendly café or roadside market whenever you like, or turn that rolling field you just passed into an impromptu picnic spot.
Do I need to bring my own bike?
We provide you with a bike, so you won’t need to worry about packing all of your gear. Each piece of equipment is thoroughly inspected by experts before each trip to ensure it’s up to snuff. But if you’d prefer to use your own stuff, by all means bring it along! We’ll make sure it goes wherever you do.
What about my luggage?
Some people might enjoy the challenge of strapping their belongings to their backs and riding on to the next town. Those people are crazy. While you bike, your luggage travels separately to your next destination and is waiting for you when you arrive.
How can I tell if a trip is right for my skill level?
Each cycling trip has its own physical grading designation, which tells you how far, how high up, and what sort of terrain you’ll encounter. The higher the grade number, the more challenging the trip will be.
What’s the pace like?
What you get out of a cycling trip all depends on how much you want to put in. Low-key trips in more relaxed destinations are perfect for pleasure-seekers, while the more demanding routes across the harsher environments will give the more competitively-minded all they can handle.
Who’s leading the way?
Wherever you go, your group will be led by your CEO and, in some regions, local guides with expert knowledge of the region’s landscape and trails. Most routes feature a variety of ways to get from point A to point B, and can be customized on-the-fly to the whims of the group.
