GAILLARD, FRANCE, February 18, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- With spring fast approaching, Cyclomundo (http://www.cyclomundo.com/
) believes there's no better time than now to consider planning a cycling tour of one of France's many wine-growing regions, the Swiss Alps, the breathtaking Mediterranean coast, or sensuous and historic Tuscany. The French cyclotourism agency prides itself on offering intimate, memorable bike tours at competitive prices. Now, the agency is suggesting even more ways for tourists to save their hard-earned money.
Most tours with Cyclomundo are self-guided, which has a couple of distinct advantages. Self-guided cycling tours give riders the privilege of moving at their own pace; nothing is rigidly scheduled, allowing a greater sense of freedom. Furthermore, self-guided tours usually cost only a fraction of a similar guided tour.
Another benefit of booking a self-guided tour with Cyclomundo is that the staff is composed entirely of locals; founder Bruno Toutain and his colleagues work one-on-one with area hoteliers and business owners to guarantee an optimal experience for all riders. Local knowledge and local connections help Cyclomundo offer discounted prices, trumping the standard guided tour offerings any day.
Early season tours often have cheaper rates when compared to the peak season. If your schedule is flexible and you want to make the tour as economical as possible, consider booking a tour in April or October. Similarly, booking early provides a savings opportunity. When a group of four books one of Cyclomundo's scheduled tours before January 31, the group is eligible for a 10% discount. Booking after January 31 but before March 31 entitles groups to a 5% discount.
As part of Cyclomundo's mission to make a positive contribution to the environment, the company is also extending a 50-euro discount to party/group leaders who belong to an environmental advocacy group.
Cyclomundo even offers a simple way to save on the next trip, or to help friends or family save on an exceptional bike tour of their own. At the conclusion of a tour, riders are encouraged to fill out a short questionnaire. The reward for doing so is a 75-euro gift certificate that's good until the end of the year after it's been issued (in other words, a certificate issued today would be good until the end of 2015).
Cyclomundo offers guided and self-guided bike tours throughout France, Spain, Italy and Switzerland, tailored to any skill level. Toutain, an accomplished cyclist himself, is proud to share with the world that sense of freedom and discovery that only comes from the gentler pace of a bicycle.
Cyclomundo is a one-of-a-kind travel company offering a diverse array of cycling vacations: guided and self-guided, pre-arranged or customized, leisurely or challenging... even some based around cyclosportive events like the Etape du Tour. Our tours are perfect for independent riders, families, friends, and groups of varying levels - you can choose elements "a la carte" for your trip in all regions of France as well as some regions in Spain, Italy, and Switzerland. Based in France, Cyclomundo was born out of our founder's life-long love of cycling. Our philosophy is to use local experts who passionately share their heritage with guests and to adhere to the concept of sustainable development. Cyclomundo's goal is for clients to experience the cultural, regional, historical and gastronomical heritage of their chosen destination and, of course, to have great, healthy fun on their bicycling adventure!
