Cycling holidays are great fun for everyone! Whether you’re cycling with friends, family, loved ones, your partner or even alone, there’s always something new to discover on your next cycling holidays. But given the popularity of cycling as a group activity, it should come as no surprise that business cycling holidays are on the rise too.
If you’re looking to make your next company outing a little different, perhaps it's time you considered taking you and your work gang away on some business cycling holidays!
With this in mind, here are just some of the benefits of business cycling holidays you might not know about:
If you’re tired of the same old team building exercises at your place of work, business cycling holidays could be the game-changer you’re looking for. Instead of gathering round a big table, gather your team around your very own unit of bicycles as you prepare to explore the country of your choice, helping each other and discovering brand new cultures, cuisines and scenery along the way!
Many of our holidays are a relaxed, smooth ride. But there are times that cycling can get tough - which makes it the perfect escape to get your team members to help each other through the rough patches and come out on the other side as a stronger collective.
It’ll be an experience they’ll remember both as a team and as an individual forever. Speaking of which…
Travelling to new locations is a great way to create some long-lasting, positive memories in any instance. But travelling with your work buddies will instantly make any trip all the more memorable.
Sharing the stunning views of the mighty Swiss Mountains, for instance, makes the experience so much more fulfilling than doing it alone. Why not make it a challenge within your company team to see who can take the best photo? There’s nothing wrong with a bit of friendly competition!
Many companies and company heads are now recognising the need to promote an active and healthy lifestyle to their workforce as part of a greater moral outlook on business. Some of them offer discounted gym memberships to their employees, others offer free sessions with a personal trainer or a health advisor.
But why not consider business cycling holidays as your venture into health and wellness?
Cycling is consistently amongst the most beneficial of all exercise, even at a leisurely level. Encouraging your staff to fit more exercise into their routing with a cycling holiday could be an excellent starting point.
As well as burning calories during your travels, your team may even keep up the habit of cycling on their return and take it up as a full-on hobby. Before you know it, your entire team will be cycling to work and cutting their BMI together!
Working with the same people on the same jobs or projects day after day can start to get old pretty quick - what’s important is that you do all you can to keep spirits high and keep things interesting in the workplace.
Business cycling holidays can act as that ‘interesting factor’ you need. As well as all of the above, your team will be able to develop a united team spirit on your cycling adventures, which might have been missed otherwise. They can help push each other forward and encourage the self-belief in their colleagues that they can do the same.
At Freewheel Holidays, plenty of our trips could easily be taken advantage of as business cycling holidays. So if you’re looking to shake things up for your next work outing (Austria or Germany, perhaps?) give us a call and we’ll organise the very best cycling holiday in Europe for you and your colleagues!
