The Change We Seek®

Global Cycling Adventures’ tours create memories, keep you active, introduce you to new friends, and nourish the soul.

Its vision is unashamedly ambitious: to revolutionise tourism by changing the way we travel. Tours are sustainable and responsible — by bicycle or e-bike to off-the-beaten-path destinations. Global Cycling Adventures works with and supports local communities around the world, providing local guides and local food, and introducing tour members to local cultures. Some tours even include meals at local houses! Accommodation ranges from boats to chalets to camps to guest houses to hotels, but is often family-run. The aim: authentic and enriching experiences for both visitors to and residents of tour destinations. Tour groups are kept small to help achieve this.

For Global Cycling Adventures, being a B Corp member is a way to reinforce its environmental and social values, and to learn from and inspire others.

What makes us a better company?
