As we brace ourselves for the winter months and continued disruptions to our daily lives, we’re holding on to a glimmer of hope… because we’re certain, one day travel will be more important than ever…
Not even Nostradamus saw this coming… one year ago things were ‘normal’, life was good and plans were being made for another great year… no one could have predicted what was around the corner and about to impact all our lives in such an unprecedented manner.
“People say you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. Truth is, you knew what you had, you just never thought you’d lose it.”
Through 2020 we’ve seen extraordinary disruption on many levels, not least sports and travel. Swaths of events cancelled, postponed or rescheduled with restrictions from the London marathon to the Olympic Games – disruption not seen for generations.
However, we all want to remain optimistic enough to look to the future just a little and feel confident in making travel plans. So we hope, when the time is right for you, that you’ll want to start again returning to organised holidays and events with your loyal bicycle.
The moment social & travel restrictions ease or are lifted completely, we’re ready to take whatever steps are necessary to get you back out there and return to what we all enjoy doing… Exploring – Dreaming – Discovering!
We have been contacted and are delighted (and grateful) that a good number of you trust us enough already to make your early bookings with us for 2021. We are sure there are many more of you dreaming of cycling again next year in spectacular locations, with the warm sunshine on your back and hope that opportunity will come for you.
With a cautious eye on things, we are making plans for the future and hope to bring to you more exciting itineraries in the most spectacular and famous locations of Europe and the United Kingdom.
If you’re already making plans with us, rest assured that your safety is, and has always been our number one priority, those of you who have been with us on past experiences will know this.
Our long-standing relationships with our partners all over Europe will help us continue to deliver exciting, life-changing, but importantly safe experiences for you (and our team)… we have never compromised on this and never will!
During these covid times, there will undoubtedly be things to introduce onto our trips to add another layer of safety. These changes will vary from trip to trip, and all teams on the ground will ensure you are protected to the highest standard. We will work with local operators, hotels and restaurants to cover all bases and guarantee you’ll have plenty of extra time to plan and be ready for any changes.
Perhaps you’re not that keen on going anywhere far just yet, that’s okay too. There will be itineraries near and far, from across the United Kingdom to the far reaching slopes of the Transalpina. Wherever we take you we will do everything to ensure you are made to feel safe. Our experienced crew are clear on safety expectations… They will continue to be up to date in all regulations and official guidance before departure, as standard. As always, they are there to help you through at any stage of your cycling holiday or cycling event wherever it is!
We understand plans can change. Covid is going to be around for a little while to come and we have to learn to live with, and find solutions to, potential future disruptions to our near future plans. This is why we are introducing our own safety net feature to your booking with us – our covid ‘Peace of Mind’ policy.
Peace of Mind Policy…
Should newly introduced restrictions disrupt any aspect of our itinerary, we will act as quickly and as best we can to ensure your dreams are kept on track. We promise to keep you informed and up-to-date with any developments should they happen and offer alternatives and guidance to give you the best chance to make early and quick decisions to mitigate severe impact on your holiday plans.
Should your planned trip with us, as a result of cv-19, be called off we will do our best to honour your booking and transfer you to another trip on any available date up to twelve months in advance!
This is our pledge to you and is applicable to all current and new bookings direct with us.
These are very challenging times for the travel industry as they are for many people. Together with yourselves and our partner businesses, along with a little patience, we will be able to find solutions. Your safety, and that of our staff and our partner companies, remain our priority and we thank you for your trust during these extraordinary times.
If you are an individual or group of friends we welcome you to view our planned ‘open’ dates for 2021. Also look out over the coming weeks/months for updates and notifications from us by email or on social media. If you are a corporate or charity customer, please contact us directly to discuss your requirements – we’re more than happy to help however we can.
Many thanks again for your continued support. Please contact us, our phone lines are currently manned part-time but please leave us a message or contact us by email or on the website, we’d love to hear from you…
