It is with a great sadness that we say good bye to Brian Alder an Escape Adventures tour leader for 10 years. What a trooper! Any riders who have joined us on our Kyrgyzstan or China & Tibet cycle tours during that time will know Brian as a fun and friendly guy with great tour leading skills. Brian, you leave a huge hole in our Escape heart. Thank you for all your contribution.
We pride ourselves on our amazing wee team of awesome tour leaders. Which makes it really sad when we have to say good bye. Emma and Jason have been leading our Kenya/Tanzania trips for two years. They're ready for a well deserved break. Thanks for all your great work Emma and Jason, we'll miss you guys heaps. But we look forward to hanging out with you (and Harry!) more outside work.
Here at Escape Adventures HQ we've been having a major brain storm about our marketing strategies. Coffee was consumed and lots of ideas were shared. It's fair to say that you'll be seeing more of us (hopefully not too much) here and on Facebook, sharing useful and interesting content about us and our bike tours!
Meet Heidi Whalley the newest member of the Escape family. Heidi's going to be helping out with our marketing, so keep an eye out for her around Nelson over the summer in all the hot biking spots (and on tour as well!) Welcome Heidi! We are excited to have you on the team!
Put Labour Weekend 2019 in your calendar! Escape Adventures will be turning 20 and we are celebrating!!
When most businesses in our industry are ramping up for a busy summer, this is the time of year that we take a step back and review the year. We look at all of your feedback from your cycle tours with us to see where we can improve, review our safety plans, get our ducks in a row for the next couple of years' tours and we get out and play on our bouncy bikes!!
Hamish, John and Mandy have been 'back to school' in the past couple of weeks... with Professional Mountain Bike Instructor Association - PMBIA Professional mountain bike instructor training... It has been great learning some new perspectives on guiding and instructing as well as some cool tips on our own riding! Check out: www.pmbia.org
Mandy and John, and many of our tour leaders have have been wearing Ground Effect cycle clothing for years! And now… we couldn’t be more pleased to have Ground Effect on board as our preferred supplier. Our tour leaders are all kitted out and loving putting their Ground Effect shorts, gloves, socks and shellwear to the test in all conditions on tour.
E-bikes are currently the fastest selling bikes in New Zealand with new bikers jumping on E-bikes all over the country! So it's not surprising that every week we receive more and more letters from people wanting E-bike holidays and if people can rent an E-bike on one of our cycle tours...
