We provide each rider on our Self-guided tours with a custom-fitted Lynskey Cooper titanium bike. These bikes are incredibly durable, comfortable and reliable. They are built to go anywhere and on any terrain with confidence. We can customise the bikes with flat handlebars if you do not enjoy drop bars. See our Bikes and Equipment page for more.
Your bikes will be fitted with a GPS tracking device so that we can determine your whereabouts should we need to. We also provide a device for you to place in your luggage, so that we can track your bags as they are transferred between locations. Additionally, these trackers have an emergency SOS button in the event of an emergency. See our How It Works page for more.
Freedom & Independence
We provide the technology, travel planning and attention to detail so that you can just focus on enjoying the ride. You'll have your pick of great places to eat plus endless opportunities for local interaction as you cycle through regional communities. This is true independent touring without the hassle. It will take you to places you'd never reach any other way and allow you to explore new locations at your own pace.
We provide an iPad Mini for you to use with our Self-guided app pre-loaded. The app contains your detailed tour route, some background information on the regions you will pass through, plus an audio commentary describing points of interest along the way. We also include an e-book food guide, with translated menus and first hand recommendations. The iPad will have Skype to keep you in touch with our support team, plus Strava to help you keep track of your progress. See our Bikes and Equipment page for more.
We choose hotels not just based on star ratings, but for their character, comfort, charm and their ability to work with us to make your journey as seamless and enjoyable as possible. In prominent locations or cities, we generally use hotels in the 4-5 star range. In the minor towns we use the best available accommodation. At the bare minimum you can expect air conditioning, a private bathroom and a comfortable bed. See our Hotels page for more.
We provide secure luggage transfers between each of your hotels. This way you can enjoy the ride knowing that when you arrive, your bags will already be waiting in your room. We will also call ahead to ensure that everything is ready for your arrival. See our Bikes and Equipment page for more.
In the event of a breakdown we have a team on call 24/7 for anything you might need. You can always reach us through the supplied iPad and we will find you using the supplied GPS trackers. We can talk you through more basic repairs, or even send our support team out to your precise location if necessary. See our How It Works page for more.
