The story of the provider of Chilterns mountain biking holiday, England

Having stayed in touch since primary school, Andy and Paul decided to cycle around South America in 1994. Andy was a keen cyclist but Paul hadn’t been on a bike since doing his paper round. They didn’t have an itinerary and used military maps to navigate through the desert. They had so much fun and met such amazing people that they agreed to set up a cycling tour company together. Andy says their trips create a flexible and intimate way to travel and absorb the local culture and, whats more, you never forget how to cycle – it’s just like riding a bike!

Responsible travel: Chilterns mountain biking holiday, England

Environment

Global adventures start with a local perspective – that's the our philosophy. Whether abroad, or just as importantly at home, the start point is the same; how to get the most enjoyable holiday for our customers while benefiting the local people, economy and respecting the environment.

We provide travellers with Travellers Codes that encourage the reduction of water usage, systems for collecting, recycling or safe disposal of litter and relevant suggestions to minimise damage to the environment, wildlife and marine ecosystems. All our holidays have a maximum group size of 12 to 15 people minimising both the social and environmental impact. We work with and support Sustrans and the development of the excellent National Cycle Network and use these routes for our UK Cycling Breaks.

Community

Cycling is a great way to explore the countryside, travelling at a speed that enables you to take in the surroundings without damaging the environment. Our UK mountain bike tours follow a variety of designated tracks and bridleways, minimising damage to the counrtyside. In each of our locations, such as the Derbyshire White Peak and Dorset, we use local guides, small independent B&B's, guest houses and hotels to ensure that the money stays in the local economy. Where we provide food we aim to use locally produced product.

Guardian / Observer Travel Awards 2013 - Voted 3rd in the Best Short Break Operator category - (top three in the last 4 years and winner in 2011) and 5th in the Best Small Tour Operator category - (top 5 for the last 5 years). The awards are voted for by the public and so in our eyes are a great set of awards to be recognised in!

Landscape

Cycling is one of the best ways to experience the landscapes and we’ve made sure that all our guides either live in or near the landscapes and have a knowledge and passion for the landscape features – we only employ guides that are as enthusiastic as we are about the local area. As well as a great escape into beautiful places, there’s lots to experience on the trip and – for those keen to find out more - our local guides can share their passion for birds, wildlife, architecture, geology, history and the great outdoors before and during the trip – it’s a wonderful way to spot things in the landscape as you’re riding along. You can also get a flavour of the local landscape through the tastebuds as we make sure our picnics include locally sourced produce.
