2015 Promotions Increase Affordability of Cycling Tours in France


Gaillard, France -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/20/2015 -- Cyclomundo's latest promotions make cycling in France an affordable reality for would-beholiday-goers in 2015.

For over a decade, the France-based purveyor of cycling trips has been providing great value on self-guided tours. Cyclomundo creates safe and interesting trip itineraries, books accommodations, arranges some meals and otherwise serves as the backbone of a trip.

Riders are at liberty to plan their own daily schedules, making the self-guided trip option much more personal — and more affordable — than guided tours. Cyclists are free to choose a money-saving picnic lunch or to skip any attractions they wish, without skimping on incredible views or French culture.

The company is offering three discounts that will save cyclists even more money by planning trips in advance: the "4=10%" discount, the cycling advocacy group discount, and 75-euro questionnaire gift certificates.

Until January 31, 2015, groups of four riders who book one of Cyclomundo's select trips in France will receive a ten percent discount on the entire tour package. With some eight-day trips running between 945 euros and 1,225 euros, the savings are substantial.

For people who eat, sleep, and breathe cycling, the "4=10%" promotion is the perfect opportunity to band together with like-minded friends. Some scheduled trips, such as "Mont Ventoux to Alped'Huez" or "Going for the Yellow," include opportunities to tackle Tour de France climbs.

Less intense options are available for those seeking active, but not elite, cycling trips. Cyclomundo will offer the "4=10%" promotion on challenging itineraries in Provence, including a guided tour at the height of lavender season. Some family-friendly, culture-centric trips are also on the list, such as routes from Geneva to Lyon in the Alps, Bayeux to Rouen in Normandy, and Dijon to Mâcon in Burgundy.

Those who are committed to promoting cycling as a means of transportation and are part of cycling advocacy groups will find yet another way to save money. A strong proponent of environmentally friendly travel alternatives, Cyclomundo rewards members of these groups with a 50-euro discount per tour.In the past, members of Transportation Alternatives in the U.S., Bicycle Australia in Australia, and Cambridge Cycling Campaign in the U.K. have benefited from Cyclomundo's discount.

Existing Cyclomundo clients can save money by earning 75-euro gift certificates after completing post-trip questionnaires.Anyone who has received the gift certificate code can apply it to a trip 5 days in length or longer, but it's worth noting that the code is transferable — past riders may give it to friends or family.
