Staying at home has been quite a challenge. Being in an industry which prides itself in the well-being of individuals, organising cycling tours in Asia and going outdoors to experience life, we understand physical distancing is quite different. Over the years we have seen the cycling community only grow and our cyclists forming a close-knit bond with each other. This bond has further helped us as a team and organization. We wanted to write in person to thank you –– you’ve helped us grow sustainable!
Our recent survey on cycling suggests 60% of respondents plan to travel for leisure post COVID. And another 60% won’t mind joining a small group departure. Destinations such as India, Vietnam, and Thailand are the most popular destinations followed by Japan and Cambodia.
Offers on Cycling Tours
We have been working on a few customers focussed offers which allow for flexible bookings and easy deposits. Initiatives such as Loyalty Club, Friends & Family Offer and No Single Supplement Offer are already live.
View all of our cycling tours in Asia offers here.
Our strategy is following ‘affordable for a reason‘. We have already slashed prices by 5% to 10% of few of our most popular cycling tours without compromising the experiences. We’re able to do this by focusing on three most important price factors:
- Group Size: We expect an increase in average group size of our cycling tours in Asia.
- Frugality: By keeping our admin/back office and overhead costs in check.
- Sustainability: We aspire to put sustainability at the core of business decisions and strive to achieve sustainable profitability instead of chasing profit maximization.
Launch of STRAVA Club
We understand social distancing has been the norm past few months. Yet it is equally important to remain physically active and stay connected. So, we launched our Art of Bicycle Trips Miles Club on STRAVA. Coupled with an interactive community it comes with added advantages.
Being a Miles Club it means when you cycle, not only do you get health benefits you also collect miles which you can use to avail benefits on our bike tour price.
To take part, join our STRAVA Club and record your rides to help us track your progress. That’s it.
Though we are working from home, we keep doing regular cycling events. Organising them on STRAVA is a good way to keep a note of one’s performance. All of our events are on our STRAVA page.
3rd June happens to be World Cycling Day. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate than cycle again. We are also running a cycling memories campaign.
The above image is from our team member Siddharth. He writes about the image:-
A very lanky me, perhaps taken in 1986-87. I had learnt how to ride and was posing as a confident young lad outside our house in New Delhi.
Share your pictures, notes, or videos of your old cycling memories. We would love to see them and talk about it.
To share, tag our Instagram handle and use the hashtag #artofbicycletrips
Last but not least our blog on cycling is now updated. And our social media pages are active. As we continue with our 11th year having completed more than 2400 trips, we keep on biking.
Until further updates.
