Are you a globetrotting cyclist, and want an easy way to find great local guides? VeloGuide has your answer, with their on-demand ‘ride and guide’ sharing app. It connects you with destinations, guides, and even rental bikes to make your cycling travels smooth, easy, and adventurous.
VeloGuide ride and guide sharing app for cycling tourists
The world of ride sharing continues to expand quickly for cycling, with more apps and services by the day. Canada-based VeloGuide is aiming to combine the best features of ride sharing, bike touring, and outstanding guide experiences. To date, the service has over 1,600 guides working in 587 cities and 69 countries worldwide.
Rates vary based on guide, location, and the type of bike. While some are one-on-one experiences, VeloGuide also works with bike shops and rental services to expand the total range of offerings.
There are many destinations available around the world – check out their website to see if they offer your dream trip. The most popular destination in the US thus far is California.
You can bring your own bike if you want, or rent something from VeloGuide. If you do rent, VeloGuide has their own theft and damage insurance protection, and ensures that all bikes are in good working condition.
Guides use a star rating system, similar to what you’re familiar with from ride share services and apps. VeloGuide recommends no more than five guests per guide.
Want to ride with a pro? VeloGuide offers this premium service, if you want to bring your ride experience to VIP (and leg-burning) status.
Tours are offered for road, mountain, gravel, fat bikes, casual riding, and even full-custom routes. Want a wine tasting tour through northern California on a Di2-equipped carbon dream bike? Or just a fun stroll on your dream European vacation? Check out VeloGuide, and they’ll make it happen.
