Bicycle Study Tour
A Guided Study tour exploring the benefits that bicycles bring to a community
Goal: Team development
A study tour is an opportunity for participants to experience the places and spaces around them in a new and fresh way. Whether you are an experienced rider or have not been on a bike in years you will gain new insights and perspectives about the value that biking can bring to a community. The tour will include a mix of hands on, experiential learning on a bike and on foot as well as an active mobility focused workshop. Facilitated, informed discussion is woven throughout the tour and is designed to deliver on the stated outcomes.
Who is a Study tour for?
Typically our tours are designed with groups, teams or business units in mind. Teams that are looking for a unique, active and immersive experience that will increase their collective understanding of and sensitivity to bikes and bike culture will be interested in this experience. A study tour is an excellent way to catalyze a project you are about to embark on or are currently envisioning.
