The Qualified Cycle Leader & Local Expert
A local guide is your connection to the world around you, a vital link that lets you get closer to the culture, the people and the country you visit. For many this element of cycling is the most important part of any holiday – it's not so much the cycling, but the connection to the world around you that is so enjoyable.
Our Guides enthusiasm for their home play ground, and for sharing its magic with you, really sets them apart and adds a dimension to your trip that is hard to explain or put a value on. If there are local guiding qualifications then they will have these too – topping up their knowledge on the history, ecology and other interesting topics that can help to enrich your stay.
A major benefit is the smooth, safe running of your ride, which is of paramount importance when you're cycling this safety comes in many forms:
Knowing that your bike is checked daily, by someone qualified to spot mechanical problems and sort them out.
Having a leader who can give tips or advice on how to be more skilled or comfortable on your bike, and get maximum enjoyment out of the cycling.
Having a leader who can manage emergencies with calm efficiency.
With all of this comes an ability to inject fun, energy and great experiences into any trip, so they really go the extra mile to make sure everything runs perfectly.
