5 Reasons To Join A Guided Cycle Tour
Want to focus on riding and let someone else take care of the logistics? A guided cycle tour might be for you.
We have been guiding cycle tours in New Zealand since 1995 and around the world since 2000; over the years we’ve spent a lot of time with guests on guided cycle tours all over the world. Here is what people tell us they appreciate the most about joining a Global Cycling Adventures’ guided cycle tour:
1. Meet People And Make Friends
For many, the core reason why they travel is to experience places, cultures and people. On a Global Cycling Adventures’ small group cycling tour you’ll be in the company of like-minded people from a variety of backgrounds. For those who are travelling alone, a small group cycling tour is an excellent option allowing them to make friends and possibly travel companions.
Traveling with a guided group opens a world of opportunity to see the authentic areas that you would never have the opportunity to see traveling alone. Local guides give the benefit of their connections and access to off-the-beaten-path gems that you wouldn’t otherwise find in any travel guidebook. Global Cycling Adventures’ guided cycling tours show travellers the real-life New Zealand. Our guides know what attractions can’t be missed as well as those that are under the radar – in fact they will lead you to the unforgettable places you might not read about in any guide book.
3. Logistics And Planning Are Taken Care Of
We’ll organise every part of your holiday and take care of anything unexpected that happens along the way, making sure you have all the information and support you need. Our guides are experienced having guided many travellers before and can anticipate problems before they arise and iron them out quickly, often without you even noticing, allowing you to relax and enjoy your holiday.
4. Support And Safety
While New Zealand is a relatively safe country to visit, there are considerations you must make such as driving and outdoor safety. Cycling New Zealand’s back roads through some stunning landscapes does not come without its risks. Riding with a guided cycling tour means your guide is aware and constantly monitoring any potential hazards. Guided Cycling Adventures’ is legally required to have trained guides, safety plans, and procedures to follow in the event of an emergency. Your guide will take care of all the driving which will also add to your enjoyment enabling you to truly relax and enjoy the scenery.
5. Save Time
Researching and booking all aspects of a holiday yourself is extremely time-consuming. Global Cycling Adventures will organise all elements of your holiday from transfers and meals, water bottles and accommodation, and take care of anything unexpected that occurs along the way. We’ll also make sure you have the information you need and your questions are answered before you leave home.
