TORONTO, CANADA, March 31, 2010 – Cycling tours are quickly becoming one of the most popular ways to explore destinations around the world, attracting travelers of all ages and abilities. A new website, www.biciklo.com, lets viewers explore over seven thousand cycling tours, offered by over four hundred tour operators, to find just the right fit.
“Biciklo.com finally gives travelers detailed information about virtually every cycling tour around the globe,” says co-founder David Houghton. “The site lets users search by country, length of tour and type of riding, whether it’s road bike, mountain bike, family tour or self-guided tour. The site provides the cost, accommodations, level of difficulty and attractions for each tour, along with the latest news about unique tours and undiscovered locations, from Albania to Zambia.”
Whether travelers want to conquer the same Alpine peaks as Lance Armstrong, or enjoy a leisurely ride in Patagonia, cycling tours offer an incredible diversity of experiences. “Cycling tourism now accounts for nearly 10 percent of the total tourism market in Europe and the United States,” says co-founder Hannah Spence. “With the increase in voluntourism and green travel, more and more people are discovering the joy of cycling tours.”
Biciklo was founded by David Houghton and Hannah Spence, two cyclists with a wealth of touring experience in North America, South America, Africa, Europe and the Caribbean. Biciklo’s goal is to promote bicycle touring as a healthy, environmentally sustainable way to travel and explore.
