Bikecation Limited

Description

Bikecation started as a conversation between Jamie Paterson and Rob Penn about the simple pleasures of a bike ride, something we know well and want to share.

Rob Penn’s first bike was a purple Raleigh Tomahawk. His elder, taller brother rode a Chopper. It was an issue: in many ways, it still is. He has ridden a bicycle most days of his adult life, in over 40 countries on five continents. He gave up a job as a City lawyer in his late 20's to cycle round the world. His bestselling book, It’s All About the Bike: the Pursuit of Happiness on Two Wheels has been translated into nine languages. It was made into a BBC documentary, Ride of My Life.

Jamie first nudged the speedo past the magical 40mph aged 11, in 1978, on the hill between Horsmonden and Lamberhurst, Kent, on his Raleigh Hustler. A businessman, he has over two decades of experience running businesses in the UK and USA. A passionate sportsman and marathon runner, he got back on a bike in his early 40s. Jamie is now making up for lost two-wheel time.

At Bikecation, we provide cycling holidays that revel in the rhythm of two spinning wheels; holidays that capture the fun and freedom of cycling as kids; holidays that celebrate the fellowship of pedalling with friends and family; holidays that give you a thirst for adventure and an appetite for great food; holidays that make time stand still.

We provide holidays that move you.

“It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.” – Ernest Hemingway.

Rainbow Tours

Description

Pioneers of responsible travel, a passionate, well-travelled team, inspirational in-country partners and expert guides set Rainbow Tours apart. We know that you are looking for the experience of a lifetime and it’s a responsibility we take very seriously. From iconic to far-flung, we plan every trip with real care and insight, looking after the smaller details as well as the bigger picture.

Rainbow Tours specialises in tailor-made holidays to Africa, Madagascar and Latin America arranging safaris, custom-made trips for couples, family holidays, honeymoons and expert-led groups, as well as relaxing beach breaks.

Whether you want to live like a local in Buenos Aries, sample characterful reds on the Maipo Wine Route or feel the hairs on the back of your neck tingle when you catch your first glimpse of Machu Picchu or the gorillas in Uganda, we can help you experience each destination in a remarkable way. Or we can take you even further afield to discover incredible hidden gems like São Tomé and Principe, the Timket festival in Ethiopia or the national parks of Madagascar.

One of our top tips for travellers: Do your best to travel as long as possible: longer trips, less often will give you a much better experience and appreciation of the country, and it’s also good for the environment.
