The LifeCycle Adventures Difference

A few words from our Founder

 

Our Beginnings

For as long as I can remember, I have loved cycling and travelling and I dreamed of starting a business to share this passion with others. So, in 2003, I left my career as a management consultant to create LifeCycle Adventures. But I didn’t want to be just another group tour operator. I wanted to give guests insights from local riders while allowing them the freedom to discover for themselves. I wanted our service to be personal and attentive without getting in the way of guests creating their own adventures. I wanted to give guests tailored experiences not simply cookie-cutter products. These are the principles that guide me when designing all our tours.

Our Tours

Our aim is to create the perfect bike tour for you – the right level of challenge, your preferred style of lodging, and extra touches that will make your tour unforgettable. We create your tour around your schedule not ours: you decide the start date and how long the tour should be. We also offer a choice of Self-Guided or Private Guided tours depending on the level of support you would like.

All our tours are private.  During your transfer, bike fitting, and route briefings, your guide is totally focused on you rather than having to cater to a large group. After you have started your tour, your guide and their support van are always nearby should you need assistance.

At the heart of our personalized and high-touch tours are some of the most experienced and knowledgeable guides in the industry. All our guides live and ride in the areas they serve and provide exceptional service and insight.

Our Difference

We offer our unique style of tours to many of the world’s best cycling destinations. Other companies have tried to imitate us but we still lead the competition in terms of customization, service, and local knowledge.

From the moment you contact us until the end of your tour, you will find us responsive, attentive, and totally focused on creating your perfect cycling vacation.

Our Environment and Our Company

 

We believe it is our responsibility to help protect the beautiful areas that our tours visit as well as the climate that supports them. For this reason, all our tours are carbon neutral. This includes administration, transportation, and accommodation.

We use Cool Effect to offset our carbon emissions. If you want to make your entire trip sustainable, you can also use this service to offset your pre and post-tour travel.

In addition to carbon offsetting, we strive to protect the areas in which we operate by choosing guides, accommodation, and suppliers who share our sustainability objectives. We also donate 10% of our profits to non-profit organizations in the communities in which we operate.
