Cycling events, tours and holidays need many skills to make them successful and full of good memories. Read on to appreciate the range of quality help that is available.
If you are running a cycling event, a corporate activity or longer tour, Ed and a Bike can help. I work mainly in the UK and Europe and blend with your team from planning to delivery. Call on skills in route planning, logistics, Motorbike escort, bike maintenance, driving support vehicles or safe delivery of sporting equipment.
I also design and run ‘relaxing cycling holidays‘ in Europe, in which you spend part of the day cycling and an equal amount of time exploring sights,browsing markets or shops or simply chilling with some of the local food and drink.
An event is much more than a well-placed array of signs. The pre-event build-up increases confidence amongst the participants and reduces problems. Attention to mental well-being increases the enjoyment and opportunities for learning and development. A great event will bring people back to a local welcome.
The team running your cycling events, tours or activities will need to:
- have a strong focus on the physical and emotional safety of participants
- work well as a team, even if team members have spent limited time together
- be practical in solving problems and willing to adopt different roles
- communicate effectively (whether with upbeat participants, un-confident riders, hosts and suppliers en route, other road users or local residents)
- simply get things in the right place at the right time
Contact me if these things are important to you.
