New Website – Having Trouble Finding Things?

header

You may have noticed we look a little different today. We have launched a brand new website to showcase all our epic tours around the world. Whether you are hoping to join us for 2 weeks somewhere in the world, or you are planning to cross a continent with us in the near future, this new website will help you get there.

Thanks to the help of our friends down the street at Catalyst Workshop for designing and building our fantastic new site. We are very excited to share with all of you.

Having troubles finding what your looking for?

Tours and Sections of Tours

All the important and interesting details of each tour are found under ‘Tours & Races.’ Once you click on a particular tour from the list, you are taken to that tour’s landing page where you’ll find all sorts of information on that tour.
Example – http://tourdafrique.com/tour-overview/?t=ruta-maya

 

 

Tour Prices and Dates

Inevitably if you are interested in a tour you need to know when it is and how much it’ll set you back. On the testing, some people noted that it was a little hard to find this info. On each tour page, under the tabs called ‘Overview’ and ‘Route’ if you scroll to the bottom you will see a table that lists the current or upcoming year’s prices and dates for each section and the full tour. You will also see here the difficulty, exotic factor, and comfort ratings.

Rider Profiles

Under ‘Tours & Races’ choose a tour, and then click on the tab called ‘People.’ This will show a listing of all the riders for that particular tour. Please note that if you don’t see any rider profiles here, it might be because its too early. Registered riders will now be able to post their own photos and profiles thru MyTours – our online registration portal.

Blog and updates from the road

You can now see a list of the most recent blog posts for specific tours right from the tour pages themselves. Take a look on the right hand column on any of the tour pages and you will see links to the most recent blog posts under the headline ‘Latest Tour News’. You can also access all the blog posts from the ‘Blog’ link in the main navigation from any page. Once you are on the blog pages, you can choose to read about specific tours by hovering the cursor over the ‘Updates from the Road’ tab.
