Feedback from Welcome to Yorkshire team cycling day in March 2017

"Great corporate trip out with the excellent Yorkshire Velo Tours team. The organisation was superb, the riding was tough but enjoyable and our team all had a great day out exploring Yorkshire by bike. Thanks again and look forward to another group ride in the future!"
Tom Ashurst, March 2017

"The organisation was brilliant and the team had a thoroughly good time (despite the drizzle). Best of all was the support vehicle, we felt pro despite being far from it!"
Alex Hooker, March 2017

Why?

Cycling has all the ingredients to provide you with the perfect social group activity.
Anyone can take part in a corporate cycling adventure whilst at the same time it promotes:


Healthy Living
We believe that a healthy lifestyle equals a healthy mind. A cycling event may well be the target to encourage your staff and clients to get that old bike out of the shed and hit the road. A few hours in the saddle doesn't have to be difficult but it will be a challenge for some. Sharing such experiences and getting fit with colleagues will foster the common goal of a healthier, happy team.

Teamwork
Look at the achievements of Team SKY in recent years. Chris Froome always emphasises that teamwork is crucial to his success at the Tour de France. Cycling is the embodiment of team work and no finer way to get your team working hard together in a relaxed and friendly environment.

Adventure
For most people who book our rides, the routes take them somewhere they’ve never been before. Many people are overwhelmed with the scenery and views they experience, only a few miles from the cities of Leeds and Bradford. Let YVT take you on an adventure into the hidden gems of Yorkshire on a bike!

Fundraising
Create a shared challenge and achievement and use this as the focus of your company’s annual charitable work. A charity cycling event is an excellent way to engage and motivate your staff and raise awareness about your chosen charity both across your company and your clients.

Great PR
An excellent to get exposure across your client base and industry. Let your bespoke cycling event provide your staff and clients with a day to remember, perhaps by raising money for your chosen charity also by telling everyone about it!

Fun
Cycling is actually great fun both for those new to the activity to hardened athletes alike!


What do we offer?

We always meet with prospective clients to talk through and design an event that is right for your business.
As a guide, this is a typical cycling event:

A typical corporate/team day

Arrival

Start and finish is the Wheatley Arms in Ilkley with excellent road, train and air links.

A pre-ride breakfast in the conference room with options to use the audio visual facilities for company presentation / welcome.

Each rider will be given a drink and nutrition pack comprising a Yorkshire Velo Tours water bottle, energy gels, flapjack and a banana.

The Ride

We have a wide range of tried and tested routes and we will choose the most appropriate for your riders.

Often it works best to have two options: a shorter less strenuous route for those newer to cycling and a more challenging route for the regular cyclists.

Each group of riders will be led by an experienced local ride leader. Our team mechanic will also drive a support vehicle to accompany the riders, so it will feel a bit like riding in a team on the Tour de France! There will be regular stops and water and food will be available to sustain the riders on route. If anyone is really struggling with the ride, there is space for people and bikes in the support vehicle, so they can always hop onboard.



Bikes/Technical Before the ride our Cytech qualified team mechanic will perform a bike check for each rider and provide any technical advice as required If riders don’t have their own bikes, bike hire is available. The Cafe Stop No cycle ride in the Yorkshire Dales would be complete without a great cafe stop to enjoy homemade food and drink. We have several tried and tested cafes to stop at, which we book ahead ready for our arrival. Finish Return to the Wheatley Arms to round the day off with drinks and food
PhotographyYou will receive an online album of photographs of your cycling event taken by our professional photographer
