Finding Your Way Home – A Photo Essay

Our little cycling company certainly has its share of eccentricities. And, yes, I am referring to more than just the staff. While many other bicycle tour companies rush headlong into the technological age and offer riders GPS downloads for their trips, we here at TDA Global Cycling prefer to encourage our cycling family to use all their faculties when riding with us. Not only does this avoid some embarrassing situations and may just save your mind, we believe it results in a more enjoyable ride and involves the cyclists more meaningfully in their surroundings

Each night, the next day’s cycling directions are written out on a whiteboard and the riders can either take a photo of them (hi-tech) or copy them down with pen and paper (low tech). The next morning all they have to do is follow those directions and keep a keen eye out for our distinctive TDA (biodegradable) flagging tape which we use to indicate which way the cyclists should go. What could possibly go wrong?


Tanks for the information.
