Ever wanted to cycle the world but have too many commitments to disappear from your normal life for months at a time?
That premise has sparked the launch of Ride25, a company offering cycle trips to the other side of the world, in 25 legs. There’s no compulsion for punters to ride them all, they only have to commit to one tour at a time. Most tours comprise of four days cycling, with 70 to 90 miles in the saddle a day.
Ride25's offering has an emphasis on the holiday part of the equation - cameraderie, enjoying the landscapes, meals and a few drinks post-ride.
Most pertinently, Ride25 is seeking a select number of independent bicycle dealers to work with. We'll have much more detail on that in the forthcoming edition of BikeBiz, out in just over a week, but in the meantime this video explains the Ride25 concept.
