Why Should I Choose GlobeRiders?

 

Few (if any) can match Helge's depth and breadth of planetary adventure on two wheels.  Our tour leaders, local guides, and chase vehicle drivers are seasoned veterans as well.  You'll ride your bike as overseas shipment is part of our tour package.  You don't have to ride in a group, as we'll provide you with waypoints, track, and routes, and teach you all you need to know about land navigation using your GPS receiver.

 

En route, we'll convene tech sessions on puncture repair and tire changing.  We'll coach you in the arts of field maintenance and repair.  In the event of a break-down, we have the ability to recover you and your bike. We'll work as a team to insure that everyone has a magnificent experience that they'll savor and recount for years to come.
