Crazy (and exciting!) times ahead!
Isn't it just incredible how this virus is affecting absolutely everybody and every industry in the world right now? I'm sure everyone in business is asking themselves a lot of questions about how they are going to get through the next month, the next year or in the case of tourism, we don't know how long... and come out stronger on the other side.
That includes us. We don't know all the answers yet; but we are looking at this like it's a really gnarly mountain bike track... The climb to the top is steep and unforgiving. The trail uneven and off camber, there are some rocks, spicy drops and steep, tight corners. If I doubt my abilities this could be terrifying! But the adrenaline is flowing, we are peaking, focused and this is going to be an exciting ride!!
One thing is for certain, Escape Adventures is alive and kicking and we are not going anywhere! We love working with all of our wonderful in-country partners. We love leading our cycle tours in the most amazing and lesser travelled parts of our amazing planet, and we love sharing it all with you! Rest assured that we are doing everything in our power to be ready to ride in these wonderful places as soon as it is safe and possible to do so.
At times like this, being a small business can be a real positive as we can reduce down to almost zero overheads (except for Mandy's coffee addiction..) for the short term. The unfortunate reality however is that for now all of our tour leaders, our local in-country crew and us too, will need to find alternative work to put food on the table for the time being. So a lot of our current caffeine fuelled kitchen table discussions are looking at ideas to employ our leaders and local crew during the months ahead... Stay with us!
