Our Mission

Our mission is to make cycling holidays and vacations as accessible to people as skiing holidays. We want everyone to be able to take a cycle vacation. To either use their bike as transport between destinations or to focus their visit on a single destination and use their bike as the centre piece of their experience.

We do this by making it easy for people to find, plan and book amazing cycling experiences and share the gear and expertise needed to make them possible. Our goal is to empower expert individuals, small businesses, and nonprofit organizations to offer their services directly to community members. This builds relationships and empowers folks from all segments of cycling industry to chart their own creative and financially independent paths.

From local tour guides to cycle advocacy groups we empower you and the rest of the CycleLifeHQ community to offer services that fulfill each other's cycling needs and help make cycle tourism better for everyone.
