Feeling inspired by the Tour de France? Are you up for a challenge, a few day’s break from the trading charts, having a once-in-a-lifetime experience in out-of-this-world views and raising money for a good cause while you’re at it? Well, we’ve got just the thing – cycle around the world (in a little over 80 days… 25 four-day tours, to be precise).
Ride25 offers incredible cycling holidays giving you a once-in-a-lifetime challenge to cycle the world (in bite-sized cycle tour holiday chunks!) Each cycling tour is four days long, covering up to 100 miles per day – and you choose whether you’d prefer pedalling through French vineyards and countryside, scaling the Swiss alps, or enjoying the food and views of the Italian lakes or the Tuscan hills.
The idea is to cycle the world one four-day tour at a time, making up a total of 25 separate cycling holidays and an amazing round-the-world challenge you can complete entirely at your own pace (and around your trading schedule). But there’s no pressure to complete all 25 – you pick and choose the routes you want to tackle and the dates that suit.
It’s not just about the cycling… it’s about camaraderie, stunning landscapes, raising money for charity and of course, sharing your day’s adventures over a meal and a few drinks in the evening.
And the best part is, Ride25 take care of everything so there’s no hassle for you. From well-designed routes and meals, snacks and drinks to keep you going to great hotel accommodation, support vehicles, personalised cycling attire and trained, experienced staff on hand to help you out, they’ve literally thought of everything – so all you have to do is enjoy the ride.
If all of that’s not reason enough to get involved, you’ll also be giving something back to a good cause – Ride25 donate a bike to Africa for every person who takes part in a cycling tour through their corporate charity Re-Cycle and raise up to £100,000 every year for African children’s charity 1morechild. And you can help them give back even more by fundraising sponsorship money for a charity close to your heart.
