Open Road Open Skies

While travelling through Southern Thailand celebrating completing his first marathon, Shane met a fellow traveller who told him about his bike journey through South-East Asia. Excitement immediately started to set in and Shane was already planning his first tour. Why hadn't anyone suggested this before?! He first started touring around The Uk and Ireland, before heading off to China for a job and some time to plan cycling home. Five years and many thousands of miles in the saddle later, Shane met another fellow traveller – Kay. He told her about his cycle tours across Asia, through Eastern Europe and around The Uk and Ireland. That same excitement that had taken hold of Shane started to simmer in Kay, why hadn't anyone suggested this to her before?

We've now been peddling, travelling and exploring together for the last five years. It had dawned on us both within our first day's cycling that it really was the best way to see new places; it didn't take any longer than that to realise we'd fallen head over heels in love with touring. With each day of cycling that passes, whether it is going over a mountain pass, crossing a country, or a few days cycling from village to village the feelings of accomplishment and peace grow and grow.

We are both very outdoorsy people, we like discovering new places and love seeing nature and animals in their own habitats. We also like to run, both of us have completed numerous marathons, and long distance races. Our interests gives us a love of the outdoors and we love hearing stories from other people about their adventures.

As someone once spread the word and introduced us to our favourite way to travel, we want to pass on the message and help you to discover just how rewarding and breathtaking cycling through a country can be. This can be done through our range of self-guided tours, unique guided tours or even a short weekend break. We are also always open to, and excited by, any other ideas that you may have. So if any of our tours grab your attention or if you have an idea about your own tour, please get in touch with us, we'll let our experience help you with yours.
