TDA Global Cycling

Global Cycling Adventures

TDA Global Cycling was conceived in the late 1980’s when Henry Gold, the company’s Founder and Director, was managing an international NGO that delivered humanitarian assistance to disadvantaged communities in Ethiopia and other African countries.

This unique little company has grown, in leaps and bounds, through many trials and tribulations. Following in the spirit of the Tour d’Afrique, several more long distance cycling expeditions have been undertaken on 6 continents and in over 60 countries around the world, offering a variety of challenging, but achievable long distance cycling adventures to anyone willing to dare themselves.
