Our Vision:

To grow the global bicycle tourism industry.

Our Mission:

We’re a bicycle tourism development and destination marketing company that helps destinations grow their local economy and jobs through bicycle tourism.
Our mission is to make cycling holidays and vacations as accessible to people as skiing holidays. We want everyone to be able to take a bicycle vacation. To either use their bicycle as transport between destinations or to focus their visit on a single destination and use their bicycle as the center piece of their experience.
We do this by making it easy for people to find, plan and book amazing bicycling experiences and share the gear and expertise needed to make them possible. Our goal is to empower expert individuals, small businesses, and nonprofit organizations to offer their services directly to community members. This builds relationships and empowers folks from all segments of the cycling industry to chart their own creative and financially independent paths.
From local tour guides to bicycle advocacy groups we empower you and the rest of the CycleLifeHQ community to offer services that fulfill each other’s cycling needs and help make cycle tourism better for everyone.
